    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Merritt Island

    Merritt Island is an unincorporated town located in Brevard County, Florida. This community is home to the famous Kennedy Space Center. It’s also home to about 35,000 people, 22 percent of whom are senior citizens. To serve the area’s sizeable senior population, there are 30 assisted living facilities located in Merritt Island and the surrounding communities.

    These assisted living facilities, like their counterparts across the state, are regulated by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). Licensed facilities supervise residents, provide assistance with personal care tasks and monitor medications, among other services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Merritt Island

    • Air quality in the Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville metropolitan area is among the best in the country. For both ozone and 24-hour particle pollution, the area is tied for the cleanest metropolitan area nationwide. Seniors with respiratory conditions may choose to relocate to Merritt Island to enjoy the fresh air.
    • In Merritt Island, the cost of living is 13.2 percent higher than the national average. This is due to higher-than-average housing prices in the community. However, health care is slightly less expensive than in the rest of the country, which may appeal to some seniors.
    • Like much of Florida, Merritt Island has a comfortable year-round climate. Winter lows are in the 50s, while summer highs are in the high 80s. Seniors may be able to participate in outdoor pastimes, such as golf, throughout the year.
    • Florida doesn’t tax seniors’ Social Security payments or pensions. The state also doesn’t charge an income tax. These senior-friendly taxes may mean that Merritt Island retirees have more room in their budgets to pay for assisted living care.
    • Merritt Island seniors can use Space Coast Area Transit to travel throughout Brevard County. The fixed-route service can help seniors reach hospitals, shopping centers and other major destinations. For some routes, weekend and evening service is available.
    • The Merritt Island area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Health First Cape Canaveral Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
