What to Consider About Memory Care in Dunnellon

Located in Marion County near Gainesville and Tampa, Dunnellon has 616 senior citizens and a total population of 1,733. Due to the high concentration of older adults, Florida has the second-highest prevalence of Alzheimer's disease in the nation, so it's not hard to estimate that Marion County could have as many as 13,293 seniors living with memory impairments.

These people often require daily assistance from highly trained staff, which is why memory care facilities are required to secure an Extended Congregate Care (ECC) license from the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. This division establishes and enforces regulations for the care of patients in ECCs and assisted living residences. Five memory care facilities are located in Dunnellon and the nearby communities of Ocala and Lecanto.

High temperatures for July top out at 91, and winter lows rarely drop below 40. Overall, Dunnellon scored a 73 out of 100 on the Sperling's Comfort Index compared to the U.S. average of 54.
  • The air quality in Dunnellon is very good. The American Lung Association gave the surrounding county a B grade for the low level of ozone and particle pollution. Because pollution can affect the respiratory and cardiovascular system, seniors may benefit from Dunnellon's clean air.
  • Florida has no state income tax, and seniors qualify for other tax breaks. Compared to most states, families and elderly relatives in Florida can keep more of their retirement benefits and personal income, which can be set aside for continued care as needed.
