    What to Consider About Memory Care in Indian River County

    Indian River County is located north of the Port St. Lucie area of the eastern seaboard of Florida. It has a population of 154,383, of which 32.2 percent, or around 50,000 people, are 65 years of age or older, and many of them are likely to be living with Alzheimer's disease.

    Statewide, 540,000 people are estimated to have dementia currently, and 720,000 will be diagnosed with it by 2025. Florida law requires an assisted living facility to get licensed as an Extended Congregate Care, or ECC, before it can supervise these patients. In Indian River County, four ECC facilities are spread across the communities.

    • Florida is one of a handful of states in the United States that doesn't have an income tax. This helps seniors and their families in Indian River County who are on a fixed income. Money that would have been spent on taxes can be used for healthcare costs in a licensed ECC facility.
    • Cost of living estimates are based on a national average of 100, and Indian River County's cost of living is 106. Housing is a bit higher than the national average at 115, but healthcare is a little lower as well. The money saved by the lower healthcare expenses and lack of income tax can be put toward housing or another bill.
    • Crime is rated on a scale with one being the safest and 100 representing the highest. For violent crime, the U.S. average is 31.1. Indian River County's ranking is a bit higher at 43.1. Property crime in the U.S. averages 38.1, as compared to 45 in Lake County. Seniors can benefit from the additional layers of security offered by an ECC.
    • Indian River County gets an average of 54 inches of rainfall yearly, and the U.S. average is 39 inches. The county has 234 sunny days as opposed to 205 nationally. Summer highs climb to 92 degrees and slide back down to 49 in January. Sperling's awards an 84 Comfort Index to Lake County on a scale of one to 100.
