What to Consider About Memory Care in Englewood
There is a growing number of seniors living with dementia in recent years, and in the state of Florida alone, statistics show 540,000 seniors are living with a memory-related disease. Englewood, Florida has a small population of only 14,863, but 48.6 percent of those people are 65 years old and older, which means a substantial number of seniors here need support services for Alzheimer's disease, dementia, Huntington's disease or other cognitive impairments. To give these seniors quality care, Englewood has eight assisted living facilities that follow state-wide dementia care regulations, such as extra security measures and annual continuing education for staff members.
- The Englewood area offers what many would consider an ideal climate. With a comfort index of 82 out of 100, it lets seniors enjoy relaxing in the sun year-round. There is a lot of rain, 15 inches more than the U.S. average, but January lows average a comfortable 52 degrees.
- Living in Englewood might be slightly more expensive than the U.S. average (by 6 percent), but it is about 5 percent cheaper than Florida’s average. This might be an incentive for individuals who have a limited amount of money and are living on a fixed income.
- Residents can take advantage of Florida’s low tax rates. Thought the state tax is high at 6.8 percent, Florida is still considered the 7th most tax-friendly state due to its low property tax rate of 0.9 percent and the lack of income tax.
- Crime is not a significant problem in Englewood. Violent crime at 33.5 out of 100 (one is safest) is just two points above average, and property crime is a fraction higher than the national average of 38.1. Knowing this may give families peace of mind that their loved ones are living in a secure neighborhood.
