What to Consider About Memory Care in Morrow

Morrow is in Clayton County, where about 10 percent of the more than 7,000 residents are age 65 and over. Across Clayton County, approximately 12.2 percent of people in this age group have Alzheimer's. For those who have been diagnosed and are considering moving into a memory care facility, there are 18 facilities in the Morrow area from which to choose. Officially, Georgia calls these facilities memory care units, and they may be part of larger assisted living communities or personal care homes

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Morrow

  • When a city's living costs are low, a family is likely to have left over cash to finance memory care. Relative to the rest of the country, Morrow's overall cost of living is 8.7 percent cheaper than the U.S. average. Healthcare in the city is an even better bargain, coming in at 10 percent below the national average.
  • Across America, the average chance of becoming the victim of a violent or property crime is less than one-half of 1 percent. By contrast, seniors in Morrow have a 10 percent likelihood of being victimized. Consequently, families may want to ask what measures a memory care facility takes to keep residents safe and prevent them from wandering. 
  • Morrow's memory care units must provide secure, wheelchair accessible outdoor spaces for their residents. Because seniors are more susceptible to heat-related illnesses than the general population, families may want to ensure that their loved ones are closely monitored when outside, especially during the summer, when Morrow's average high temperature is around 90 degrees
  • Seniors in memory care facilities who have respiratory conditions may be especially sensitive to air pollutants. On a scale of one to 100, with one being the worst and 100 being the best, Morrow's air quality receives a score of 19, which is significantly below the U.S. average of 58. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that seniors limit outdoor activity as much as possible on poor air quality days
