What to Consider About Memory Care in Union City

Senior citizens represent more than 12 percent of Union City's 21,379 residents. Fulton County, which is part of metro Atlanta, has a lower prevalence of Alzheimer's disease than other areas in the state. Although only 6.4 percent of Medicare-eligible residents in the district have dementia, the number of diagnoses is projected to increase 35 percent by 2025.

Because dementia patients have complex medical and behavioral requirements, all personal care homes and assisted living communities that operate memory care units must follow specific rules enforced by the Georgia Department of Community Health. Union City has several qualified memory care facilities. Families may also wish to consider additional options in Alpharetta, Sandy Springs and Atlanta's southwestern suburbs.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Union City

  • Georgia's income tax policy benefits retirees. It offers generous exclusions for pensions, annuities and interest or dividends. Plus, Social Security is never taxed. Starting at age 62, taxpayers qualify for an exemption of $35,000 per year, which increases to $65,000 at age 65. These policies may enhance the affordability of memory care and personal services.
  • Union City residents enjoy a moderate cost of living that's 4 percent below the state and national averages. Although transportation costs are 55 percent higher, healthcare costs are 9 percent lower than the national average, which can benefit seniors who require ongoing medical care.
  • Although Union City is part of the Atlanta metro area, the city has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness. The nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care is Emory Healthcare, which is 30 minutes away in Atlanta's city center.
  • One downside of living in metro Atlanta is the region's poor air quality. Of 25 cities surveyed, it ranked 23rd and 22nd based on the high level of ozone and year-round particulates respectively. Families who are concerned about the effects of poor air quality may wish to ask tour representatives about what they're doing to improve the facility's indoor air quality.

Paying for Memory Care in Union City

Memory Care costs in Union City start around $3,663 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,743 per month.
