    What to Consider About Memory Care in Hernando County

    Hernando County is north of Tampa and west of Orlando, along Florida's Gulf Coast. Of the county's 186,553 population, nearly 50,000 are aged 65 or older, and an estimated 6,000 of them are living with Alzheimer's disease. Across the state, the Alzheimer's Association expects the number of people needing dementia care in what the state calls Extended Congregate Care facilities (ECC) to ramp up from 540,000 to 720,000.

    Families and their loved ones with dementia may benefit from specialized supervision in a facility licensed and regulated by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. Hernando County has three ECCs in Spring Hill and one in Brooksville.

    • Cost of living estimates are based on a median score of 100 for the nation, and at 100.3, Hernando County's cost matches that average. At 84, housing costs are far less expensive than the U.S. median, and healthcare scores are slightly lower, at 95. This means living expenses may decrease for seniors who move to Hernando.
    • Seniors and family members, especially those on fixed incomes, can enjoy Florida's lack of a state income tax. That relief may make a difference in budgeting, allowing a bit extra toward other expenses.
    • Like much of Florida, Hernando County gets no snowfall. It receives 52 inches of rain per year, while the average U.S. city receives 59. About 205 sunny days per year is the national average, but Hernando County beats that at 244. The temperate climate may be kind to seniors' joints and lungs, as summer high temperatures stay below 92, and winter lows only dip to 49 degrees. Sperling's Comfort Index rates Hernando County at 76 (on a scale of one to 100), much higher than the national average score of 54.
    • Hernando County's violent crime rating is about 15 points higher than the national average, at 45 and 31.1, respectively, based on a scale where one is the safest and 100 is the least safe. The U.S. average for property crime is 38.1, while Hernando County's is 42.1. Families should inquire about the security measures in place at prospective ECCs to protect the residents.
