What to Consider About Memory Care in Bay County

Florida has the second highest rate of Alzheimer’s in the country. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, as many as one in 40 Floridians are living with this disease. In Bay County, which has about 184,000 residents and a senior community that makes up nearly 17 percent of the population, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reports that over 12 percent of seniors receiving Medicare benefits have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.  

Bay County has three memory care facilities in the cities of Panama City Beach, Bay City and Panama City. In this county, as in the rest of Florida, memory care facilities may have their own dedicated residence, or they may be situated within assisted living facilities that have specialized care staff, training and activities designed for residents with dementia.
