What to Consider About Memory Care in Norcross

Located in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta metropolitan statistical area, Norcross has a population of 16,845, including more than 800 adults who are 65 or older. Within Gwinnett County, some 10,250 seniors are estimated to have Alzheimer's disease, dementia or a related cognitive impairment.

To serve these residents, assisted living facilities and personal care homes may operate memory care communities. To do so, they must follow guidelines set by the Georgia Department of Community Health, which oversees training, facility design and additional regulatory requirements. Norcross and the surrounding area are home to 58 qualified memory care facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Norcross

  • The cost of living in Norcross is close to the national average at 95.9 and 100, respectively. Healthcare is nearly 10 percent cheaper, which may benefit families searching for a memory care facility in Norcross, especially if their loved one is receiving Social Security or a retirement pension payments.
  • Air quality in Gwinnett County is fair to poor. It received a grade of B for particle pollution and an F for ozone days from the American Lung Association. Seniors with cardiovascular issues, asthma, lung cancer or breathing difficulties should be aware that living in Norcross could endanger their health or cause respiratory complications.
  • Although Norcross receives 14 more inches of rain than the average U.S. city, it gets just 1 inch of snow annually. Additionally, sunny days are slightly more prevalent than the national average with 213 versus 205. Highs of 88 and lows of 31 are largely responsible for the area's favorable Sperling's Comfort Index of 67, which is 13 points higher than the U.S. average of 54.
  • Georgia is in the upper echelon of tax-friendly states in the U.S., especially for retirees. For those 65 and above, annual Social Security payments are tax free along with a hearty $65,000 off the top of most retirement packages. Additionally, seniors may qualify for other tax deductions, and the sales tax rate is reasonable at 4 to 8 percent depending on the jurisdiction.
