What to Consider About Memory Care in Georgetown
Georgetown is one of the largest cities in the Austin-Round Rock metro area of Texas, registering a total population of 70,685 residents, with a sizable 29.1 percent of those being seniors, aged 65 years and older. The Georgetown area has 34 residential facilities, seven in the city and 27 nearby, that provide long-term memory care to senior residents with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other cognitive disabilities. The Texas Health and Human Services licenses these facilities as Type B assisted living facilities and requires an additional Alzheimer’s certification for facilities providing specialized services for residents with cognitive impairments.
- While Texas has one of the highest sales and property tax rates in the country, it does not deduct any taxes on income, including Social Security pension and all forms of retirement income. This retirement-friendly statewide tax policy means substantial savings for seniors, which can add to their budget for memory care.
- The city of Georgetown is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Georgetown Behavioral Health Institute and the Rock Springs Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Georgetown’s overall cost of living is listed at 121 and is higher than the national cost of living average of 100 and the state’s 102. Housing is the biggest contributor to the city’s high cost of living, higher by 56 percent than the national average. However, this is compensated with more affordable healthcare and grocery costs, giving families more leeway for the medical and daily supply expenses of their senior loved ones.
- Although Georgetown’s comfort index of 66 (out of 100) is better than the national average of 54, average high temperatures during summer months can go as high as 95 degrees Fahrenheit. When scouting for memory care facilities, families should consider their loved ones’ potential comfort during extremely hot and humid days. Winter months, on the other hand, are generally tolerable, with an average of zero inches of snow per year and average low temperatures of 37 degrees Fahrenheit.
