What to Consider About Memory Care in Stone Mountain

The small city of Stone Mountain, Georgia, has just over 6,000 residents, roughly 8 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. Some of this city's seniors are among the state's 140,000 people who are currently living with Alzheimer's, a disease that accounts for between 60 and 80 percent of dementia cases, according to Georgia's Division of Aging Services. 

While Stone Mountain is a relatively small city, it is home to two memory care facilities. Families seeking out more options will find two dozen more facilities nearby in cities such as Decatur, Tucker and Norcross. In Stone Mountain, as in the rest of Georgia, memory care may be provided in memory care units within assisted living communities or in personal care homes. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Stone Mountain

  • In Georgia, Social Security benefits are not subject to state income tax, and while all other types of retirement income are taxable, there is a large deduction for people over the age of 64. This may allow for more money available in the memory care budget for seniors in Stone Mountain.
  • Air quality may be a consideration for seniors with health conditions such as cardiovascular disease or asthma. The American Lung Association gave DeKalb County an "F" for ozone pollution and a "B" for 24-hour particle pollution. Families may wish to consult with a physician regarding the impact of Stone Mountain's air quality on their loved one's health.
  • The Stone Mountain area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in geriatric care such as Stone Mountain Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Stone Mountain's overall cost of living is only slightly higher than the national average, and healthcare in this city costs about 10 percent less than in the nation as a whole. This may make Stone Mountain a good option for seniors and their families who must make ends meet within limited memory care budgets. 

    Paying for Memory Care in Stone Mountain

    Memory Care costs in Stone Mountain start around $0 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,743 per month.
