What to Consider About Memory Care in Stockbridge

All memory care facilities in Stockbridge comply with the Georgia Department of Community Health’s regulations for assisted living facilities. All communities must follow standard rules for care planning, move-in and move-out procedures and nutrition services, along with dementia-specific rules for staffing, staff training and building features that promote comfort and security.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Stockbridge

  • Georgia’s generous income tax laws benefit retirees, which may help some seniors and families afford memory care services in Stockbridge. The state has a deduction of up to $65,000 seniors can claim to reduce what they pay in taxes on pension income and withdrawals from retirement accounts. Additionally, it doesn’t tax Social Security benefits.
  • Based on historical data, the American Lung Association gives the Stockbridge region a D for ozone pollution, indicating a relatively high number of high-ozone days annually. However, the number of high-ozone days has dropped considerably over the past two decades, with recent data showing virtually no high-ozone days, benefiting seniors with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions.
  • Stockbridge residents experience hot, humid summers with daytime temperatures between 82 and 89 degrees Fahrenheit and muggy conditions at least 22% of the time. However, winters have relatively mild conditions, with daytime temperatures between 54 and 61 degrees Fahrenheit. Many memory care facilities have unit-controlled thermostats for tailored comfort throughout the year.
  • Stockbridge’s cost of living closely aligns with the national norm, but it's high compared to the state average. On a 100-point index based on living costs nationwide, the city scores 101.2 versus the Georgia score of 94.5. Fortunately, Georgia funds programs such as the Elderly and Disabled Waiver Program, which may help some qualified seniors afford memory care costs.
  • Piedmont Henry, a 259-bed not-for-profit hospital in Stockbridge proper, offers a variety of primary and specialty care services for area residents. Its Neurosciences Department has neurologists who specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions such as Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
