    What to Consider About Memory Care in Muscogee County

    Located in a state where 140,000 people have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, Muscogee County has a senior population of around 25,000, some of whom have cognitive impairments. To support these people, there are three assisted living facilities in the area.

    These facilities are specialized units within an assisted living facilities or personal care home. Within Muscogee County, the city of Columbus is listed as one of the best places to retire in the area, which makes it an excellent location for families to place loved ones in memory care.

    • Seniors in Muscogee County and the state of Georgia don’t pay income tax on Social Security Income benefits (SSI). The state also provides a $65,000 deduction on all other types of retirement income and doesn’t have an inheritance or estate tax. This may leave more money left at the end of the year to supplement the cost of memory care.
    • Compared to the national and state average of 100, the cost of living index in Muscogee County is 80.5 This makes the county an affordable location for seniors in memory care. Groceries and other necessities will cost less in the area in comparison to other areas in the state, which leaves more money left to supplement memory care costs.
    • The average July high in Muscogee County is around 92 degrees. Winters are short and cold with average January lows around 35. Families choosing a memory care facility for a loved one may want to make sure the facility has proper security measures in place to prevent residents from wandering outside.
    • Muscogee County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Piedmont Columbus Regional Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
