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.
