What to Consider About Memory Care in Rome

The Georgia Department of Community Health licenses memory care facilities in Rome and the rest of the state. This department enforces minimum standards for care planning, staff ratios and security. The department also publishes information on residents’ rights and what to do in instances of substandard care. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Rome

 

  • Rome is located in Floyd County, which the AARP designates as an age-friendly community. The community has a livability score of 46 based on its access to grocery stores and parks, regional air quality and high local patient satisfaction ratings. This may make it a favorable option for those seeking memory care services.
  • Atrium Health Floyd Medical Center, a 304-bed full-service hospital, and AdventHealth Redmond, a nonprofit hospital with over 250 affiliated physicians, are located in Rome proper. These hospitals provide a full range of health care services, including geriatrics and neurology. To further promote access to health care, many memory care facilities have on-call physicians and dedicated office space for on-site medical services.
  • Rome has warm, humid summers and short, mild winters, making the city an attractive retirement destination for prospective memory care residents sensitive to cold weather. During the warm season, which lasts from late May through mid-September, daytime temperatures range from 82 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters are comfortable, with daytime temperatures ranging between 52 and 59 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • The American Lung Association reports that the air quality in the Atlanta metropolitan area, where Rome is located, is subpar. The region ranks 47th worst in ozone pollution among 227 communities and 37th worst in annual particle pollution among 200 communities. While this may impact seniors’ health, many memory care facilities have indoor activities throughout the year, as well as air purification systems.
  • Most Georgia seniors have low state income tax bills due to the state’s retiree-friendly tax laws, which may help some seniors and families afford dementia care expenses in Rome. Social Security benefits are tax-exempt for all seniors, and there’s a maximum deduction of $65,000 to reduce what seniors owe on other forms of retirement income.
