Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Middleburg
- One reason seniors are drawn to assisted living in Florida is for its income tax cuts. In Middleburg and across the state, Social Security and pension income are exempt from taxation. Seniors who spend less on taxes can spend more on traveling, recreation or assisted living costs.
- Middleburg has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Middleburg Weigel Senior Center, an organization that offers socialization through activities such as bingo games, dance classes and Karaoke.
- The Middleburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Vincent's Medical Center Clay County, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Middleburg's climate often produces summers that are long and mostly cloudy. Winters are short, but it is rainy in Middleburg almost all year round, with an average 53 inches of rain annually (compared to the national average yearly rainfall of 39 inches). Seniors who experience asthma, allergies or chronic headaches could find their conditions worsened in an area with so many storms.
- Middleburg experiences approximately three crimes per 1,000 residents each year, slightly lower than Florida's average 4.3 crimes per 1,000 residents annually. Seniors should be mindful of Middleburg's average crime rates when contemplating assisted living in the area.
- On a scale of one to 100 (with 100 being perfect air quality), Middleburg's air quality is given a score of 60, and the country's average air quality is scored at 58. Because the air quality in Middleburg is comparable to the national average, seniors cannot be guaranteed to find respiratory relief in the area.
