What to Consider About Memory Care in Tucker

Health Facility Regulation is the division within the Georgia Department of Community Health responsible for licensing memory care facilities. It enforces states and federal statutes, investigates complaints and conducts unannounced inspections to ensure facilities comply with licensing conditions involving staff training, the company's financial stability and adherence to fire and health and safety regulations.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Tucker

 

  • Tucker is home to the highly-regarded Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital, which specializes in issues related to bones, muscles, tendons and nerves. Outside the city limits, but nearby, is Emory St. Joseph's Hospital, ranked as high-performing in almost 20 procedures and regarded as one of Georgia's finest hospitals.
  • Based on the U.S. average of 100, Tucker's cost of living index of 107.4 appears high, particularly when compared to Georgia's 94.5. However, the city is in the Atlanta metro area, which is known for having a higher cost of living than much of the state. Within this area, Tucker's cost of living is considered quite low.
  • Ranked on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being low, property crime in the city ranks at 55.5, which is far above the national average of 35.4. Violent crime is less common, though, ranking at 21.3 compared to the country's average of 22.7. Families considering Tucker for memory care may be pleased to know licensed facilities must introduce "safety and security precautions that ... protect residents from harm." Although each facility is unique, these precautions often include controlled-access doors and 24/7 awake staff.
  • Tucker's subtropical climate results in hot and humid summers, with highs of 88 degrees and uncomfortably muggy days between June and August. Annual rainfall of 16 inches above the national average of 38 is a contributory factor. Snowfall isn't common, typically 1 inch per year, and freezing temperatures are infrequent and usually occur during the night.
  • On a scale of 0 to 100, with 100 being the best, Tucker's air quality index of 40 is 18 points below the national average, and its water quality of 32 is 23 points below the norm. However, the city boasts 107 extra physicians per capita than the country's average of 210, so waiting times for medical care may be shorter in Tucker.

Paying for Memory Care in Tucker

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates. No national database currently tracks memory care costs in the United States, so we've estimated the monthly memory care costs listed below by adding 25% to the rates listed in Genworth's 2021 Cost of Care Survey.

Tucker's median monthly fee for memory care is $4,806, although lower and higher fees are possible based on the community's number of amenities and location.

The Cost of Memory Care in Nearby Cities

Although the average family in Tucker saves $819 per month on memory care when compared to the national average, they pay another $387 when compared to the typical Georgian family. However, Tucker is more affordable than other nearby options. Families would need to increase their monthly spending by $60 in Gainesville, $424 in Athens and $560 in Rome.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Nursing home care, at $7,528 per month, is the only option costlier than memory care's $4,806. Both can support seniors at all stages of the memory loss journey. Families may find other options can help up to the mid-stage of dementia, but none will provide 24/7 assistance without substantially increasing their fees. Consequently, 44 hours of home health care per month can be had for $4,576 and in-home care for $4,290. Adult day care averages $1,327 but requires daily trips to a center, and assisted living offers 24/7 care for $3,845, but it's unsuitable for people with dementia.
