    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lakeland

    Close to 24,000 seniors over the age of 65 live in Lakeland, Florida, some of whom have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. To accommodate these individuals, there are 11 memory care facilities located within the city limits and surrounding areas. In Florida, these facilities are referred to as Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) that operate under a Limited Mental Health (LMH) license. To be considered a memory care facility, they must house at least three individuals who receive Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

    In Lakeland and throughout the state of Florida, seniors do not have to pay income tax on Social Security retirement benefits, pension income and income from an IRA or 401K due to the lack of state income tax. This allows seniors to hold on to more of their money.

    • Lakeland is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Lakewood Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living in Lakeland is 91.9, which is lower than the state average of 111. Seniors who want to retire in the sunny state may find Lakeland an affordable option. The cost of living in the city is also lower than the national average of 100.
    • Crime is ranked on a scale from one (low) to 100 (high). In Lakeland, violent crime is 40.6, which is higher than the national average of 31.1. Property crime is ranked 64.6, which is also significantly higher than the national average of 38.1. This makes Lakeland an unsafe area for seniors who enjoy being outdoors or who enjoy frequent outings.   
    • Like most cities in Florida, Lakeland has hot and humid summers and short, mild winters. The average July high is around 92 degrees and the average January low is around 49. The city rarely gets any snow, which is ideal for seniors trying to escape the cold temperatures in the northern states.
