    What to Consider About Memory Care in Leesburg

    Leesburg, Florida has a population of 22,689, of which 22.6 percent, or 5,127, are 65 years of age or older. It's close to Orlando in the Lake County area of central Florida, where some 88,700 seniors reside and 11,384 of them are estimated to have Alzheimer's disease, dementia or another cognitive disease. Not all assisted living facilities can supervise these patients. Florida law dictates that to handle those seniors with cognitive impairments, an Extended Congregate Care, or ECC, must be obtained. In the Leesburg vicinity, there are three dozen memory care communities.

    • Florida's lack of a personal income tax favors seniors in Leesburg, especially those on a fixed income. The money that would have been spent on taxes can be used for household expenses and continued care for seniors living in memory care facilities.
    • Cost of living estimates are based on a national average of 100. Leesburg's cost of living is 93.8, so senior care expenses will be in line with national figures.
    • Crime is rated on a scale with one being the least amount and 100 representing the highest. For violent crime, the U.S. average is 31.1. Leesburg's ranking is nearly 37 points higher at 68.4. Property crime in the U.S. averages 38.1, as compared to 60.5 in Leesburg. Seniors may benefit from the extra security provided by a memory care facility.
