What to Consider About Memory Care in Eustis
On the outskirts of Orlando, Florida, sits Eustis, a small city of just over 20,000 residents that experiences high tourism rates. Nearly 25 percent of Eustis residents are aged 65 or older, and while many can live independently and care for themselves, some require round-the-clock specialized care for dementia disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease. In fact, an estimated 540,000 seniors throughout Florida have been diagnosed with some form of dementia, and in cities where a large portion of the population is made up of senior citizens, the need for memory care facilities is considerable.
In Eustis, this need is met by nearly 50 facilities in the city and its surrounding areas. These facilities, officially known in Florida as assisted living facilities, are often housed alongside other levels of care because provisions for memory care and assisted living are similar in Florida.
- The Eustis area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care, such as Florida Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- The climate in Eustis is extremely hot and humid. Throughout July, the average high temperature is 92 degrees, and when combined with an annual rainfall of 51 inches, the weather can be fairly uncomfortable at times. Seniors may find this to be a major downside of living in the area.
- There is no state income tax in Florida, which means that seniors can use most of their retirement income, including social security benefits, to cover the cost of memory care.
- Violent crime rates in Eustis are almost half of the state average. However, 5.34 more property crimes per 1,000 residents occur than in the average city in Florida. Regardless of crime rates, it's a good idea for seniors and their families to inquire about the safety procedures memory care facilities have in place to keep residents safe.
