What to Consider About Memory Care in Brevard County

Brevard County is situated in the state of Florida, which has the second highest Alzheimer's rate in the country. In Brevard County, where close to 600,000 people reside and a large senior community makes up nearly a quarter of the population, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reports that roughly 13 percent of Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 and over have Alzheimer's or dementia. 

Brevard County is home to more than a dozen memory care facilities, most of which are in the cities of Melbourne and Palm Bay. In some cases, memory care services are provided in freestanding buildings that only serve those with dementia. Alternately, memory care facilities may share campuses with assisted living facilities that specialize in dementia care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

 

  • Seniors in Brevard County do not pay state income tax on any type of income, including money received from Social Security, pensions and retirement savings accounts. This may leave more money available for memory care expenses.

Summer highs in this county are around 90 degrees, and winter lows are near 50 degrees. This may make the region a good option for memory care residents who enjoy therapeutic outdoor activities.
  • Brevard County's cost of living is relatively affordable, coming in on par with the national average and about 10 percent lower than the state average. Healthcare expenses here are slightly lower than state and national medians, which may make managing chronic conditions like dementia more affordable.
