What to Consider About Memory Care in Suwanee

The Georgia Department of Community Health monitors and licenses statewide memory care communities through its Healthcare Facility Regulation division. It also surveys facilities for Medicare and Medicaid certification. Team members periodically visit communities to ensure they abide by regulatory obligations, such as specialized staff training, up-to-date service plans and therapeutic activities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Suwanee

  • Suwanee scored 52 on AARP’s Livability Index, 4 points higher than the national average. It received its highest ratings in the opportunity, health and neighborhood categories. Although the city obtained relatively low scores for transportation, housing and engagement, residing in a memory care community can help seniors overcome potential issues; most facilities provide medical transportation, accessible environments and programs designed to support holistic well-being.
  • Regarding safety, Suwanee has lower-than-average rates for both violent and property-related crime. Figures suggest that locals have a 1 in 511 chance of experiencing a violent act, compared to a 1 in 272 chance statewide. For property crime, the local probability rests slightly lower than the state outlook. However, memory care communities offer enhanced security features, such as 24/7 on-site staff, enclosed grounds and keypad doorways.
  • When it comes to finances, living costs in Suwanee are 2.2% higher than the national average and 8.1% higher than the state standard. That said, Georgia is very tax-friendly for seniors, with no income tax on Social Security payments and generous deductions and exclusions for other income sources. There’s no inheritance or estate tax, and the local sales tax rate is lower than the U.S. average. Moreover, the Division of Aging Services — part of the Georgia Department of Human Services — manages diverse assistance programs for older adults.        
  • In 2023, County Health Rankings & Roadmaps ranked Gwinnett County as 6th out of 159 surveyed counties across the state. The county placed in the top quarter for both health outcomes and factors, making it among the healthiest places in Georgia. The area’s premature death rate stands well below state and national averages, and residents reported fewer-than-average days of poor physical or mental health.
  • Suwanee’s doctors each see an average of 1,517 patients yearly, slightly more than the state average of 1 to 1,492. Over 94% of the area’s population has health coverage, such as VA plans and Medicare. Local health care facilities include Reagan Medical CenterNorthside Hospital Duluth and Emory Johns Creek Hospital.
