    What to Consider About Memory Care in Jonesboro

    Jonesboro is the county seat of Clayton County, Georgia, and home to about 4,724 residents, including 550 who are aged 65 or older. In the state of Georgia, the senior population of 160,000 is projected to increase to 190,000 by 2025, and an estimated 11.6 percent of these people are expected to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or a related memory condition.

    The Georgia Department of Community Health issues licenses to memory care facilities who are charged with caring for people with cognitive impairments.  Additionally, they oversee staff training, resident living conditions and facility operating procedures. One such memory care unit is located in Jonesboro and 21 others are located in neighboring municipalities.

    • Jonesboro's cost of living is 93.1; slightly lower than the U.S. average rating of 100 and significantly lower than the state or national medians. Healthcare in Jonesboro is also less costly than the national average, so choosing a memory care facility in the area could save money for seniors and their families.
    • Georgia's state tax laws are weighted in favor of people aged 65 and older. Social Security dividends and the first $65,000 of income earned annually after retirement are exempt from taxes. With existing property tax exemptions and the state sales tax of 4 percent, seniors on a fixed income may be able to afford more for healthcare.
    • The violent and property crime rates in Jonesboro are higher than in most U.S. cities. To keep senior residents safe within the premises, memory care units should be expected to have adequate security measures, such as auto-lock doors, video cameras and security guards.
    • Jonesboro has an average of 221 sunny days compared to 205 sunny days nationally. The area receives only 1 inch of snow annually, far less than the U.S. average of 26 inches. The yearly temperature ranges from 31 degrees Fahrenheit in winter to 90 degrees in summer with 50 inches annual rainfall. Sperling's Comfort Index rates Jonesboro at 67 out of 100 based on its number of comfortable days.
