    What to Consider About Memory Care in Richmond Hill

    State-of-the-art medical facilities, a diminished crime rate and lovely scenery are among the reasons a senior might want to live in Richmond Hill, a city of more than 10,000 residents located just minutes south of Savannah. Nearly 7 percent of people in Richmond Hill are 65 or older, and of these, about one in 10 has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. For affected seniors and families who are considering memory care, there are four memory care facilities available in Richmond Hill and nearby communities, such as Savannah and Pooler.

    In Georgia, a memory care unit is defined as a specialized unit of an assisted living community or personal care home that follows special rules to serve residents with dementia. 

    • A city's cost of living may affect how much families of seniors need to set aside for memory care services. In Richmond Hill, overall living costs and healthcare costs, respectively, are 10.5 and 8 percent higher than U.S. national averages. 
    • Sperling's Best Places measures the comfort of a city's climate on a scale of one to 100, where 100 is the most comfortable. Richmond Hill receives a score of 75, which is well above the national average of 54. A high score means that Richmond Hill has little humidity and many days with temperatures in the 70s and 80s.
    • Seniors may have more room in their budgets for memory care thanks to state and local tax breaks, including the tax-exempt status of Social Security retirement benefits. The state also allows people 65 or older to deduct $65,000 per person from retirement income, which could free more money for extended care. 
    • Polluted air in or outside a memory care facility may affect seniors' health. On a scale of one to 100, with one being the worst and 100 being the best, the air quality in Richmond Hills ranks at 53, which is slightly worse than the U.S. average of 58.
