What to Consider About Memory Care in Martinez

Martinez has approximately 42,000 residents, including more than 6,000 who are aged 65 or older. In Columbia County, 10.6 percent of its 155,000 Medicare beneficiaries are estimated to have Alzheimer's disease or a related condition, which may eventually require the services of a memory care unit, as they are called in the state. One such facility is located in Martinez, and two other memory care units are in nearby Evans. The Georgia Department of Community Health licenses and supervises these facilities.

  • The cost of living in Martinez is 94.5, which is a bit less than the U.S. average rating of 100, and housing expenses also run lower than the state and the country. Healthcare in Martinez costs a little more than average, but families could save money by placing a loved one in a local memory care unit.
  • State tax laws are favorable for senior citizens, whose Social Security dividends and the first $65,000 of annual post-retirement income are exempt from taxes. Property tax exemptions are generous, and the state sales tax is low at 4 percent, but local communities can add as much as 4.9 percent more. Seniors on a fixed income may be able to budget extra money for healthcare by taking advantage of the tax savings.
  • Sperling's Comfort Index rates Martinez at 76 out of 100 based on the annual number of nice days and the area's humidity. Sunny days outnumber the national average by 217 to 205, and Martinez only receives 1 inch of snow per year, as opposed to the U.S. average of 26 inches. The yearly temperature span is less than 60 degrees, from lows of 34 in winter to highs of 92 in summer and 45 inches of rain each year.
  • The violent crime rate is lower, but the property crime rate is higher than most U.S. cities. Memory care units must have adequate security measures to keep patients within the facility and safe from outside crime.
