What to Consider About Memory Care in Lake Mary

With nearly one in 40 people experiencing Alzheimer’s disease in Florida, Lake Mary is prepared to support its residents living with various forms of dementia. Seniors and their families in the Lake Mary area can choose from 22 memory care facilities, known as Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs), where staff have been  trained by a Florida-approved instructor to work with people who have developed Alzheimer's or other memory impairments.

Seniors and their families who may be on a tight budget yet wish to find residential memory care support in Lake Mary may be happy to know that Florida is known as a retirement tax-friendly state. Income from a pension, Social security retirement benefits or an IRA or a 401(k) are all untaxed in Florida. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Lake Mary

  • On a scale of A-F, the air quality in Seminole County has been given an A grade in both the ozone pollution and particle pollution categories by the American Lung Association. This suggests the Lake Mary area has clean air and few environmental pollutants that would aggravate any respiratory health conditions seniors might have.
  • Lake Mary is considered more dangerous than nearly two-thirds of all cities and towns throughout the United States. There are 308 crimes annually, making Lake Mary's crime rate higher than 40 percent of all communities throughout Florida. Such high crime rates might deter some seniors or family members from selecting a memory care facility in the area and warrant an understanding of how memory care facilities keep residents safe. 
  • Lake Mary's cost of living is approximately 21 percent more expensive than the national average cost of living and nine percent more expensive than the average across Florida. Seniors or family members searching for a memory care facility should consider how much they wish to spend when contemplating Lake Mary. 
  • Lake Mary has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital, Central Florida Regional Hospital, located in Sanford.
