What to Consider About Memory Care in Leesburg

In Leesburg and the rest of Florida, memory care facilities are licensed as assisted living facilities by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. This department enforces guidelines related to care planning, recreation, nutrition and medication services and dementia-specific services to ensure a consistently high standard of care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Leesburg

  • Florida doesn’t have a state income tax, so Leesburg seniors only pay federal income taxes on their retirement income and benefits. This may help some seniors afford the city’s relatively high memory care expenses. The state also doesn’t have an estate or inheritance tax.
  • Leesburg residents have several public transportation options, including LakeXpress fixed-ride services and Lake County Connection’s door-to-door rideshare services. This may make it easy for some families to visit loved ones in local memory care facilities.
  • Leesburg rates 88.2 on a 100-point cost of living index, indicating that living expenses are about 12% lower here than in a typical U.S. city, and it rates 15 points below the state norm. The city’s affordability may promote competitive memory care pricing and make the city an economical option for those with limited resources.
  • Leesburg’s crime rates are somewhat high, making residential care a preferred option for those who are vulnerable. The city rates 42.6 for violent crime and 71.4 for property crime on a 100-point index. By comparison, the nation as a whole scores 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. Memory care facilities keep residents safe with escorted transportation and security measures, such as surveillance cameras.
  • Leesburg is among the warmer places to live in Florida, and humidity levels tend to be very high in the summer. Winters are mild with daytime temperatures near 70 degrees, and summers are very warm with highs in the low 90s. Memory care facilities host indoor activities throughout the year, promoting an engaged lifestyle for those who are sensitive to heat.
  • Costs for health services, such as hospitalizations, dental care and doctor’s office visits, come in about 4% below the national norm. There are about 160 doctors per capita compared to the national average of 210, although the city is home to UF Health Leesburg Hospital. Many memory care facilities have licensed health care professionals or on-call physicians who provide prompt medical care for residents.  

Paying for Memory Care in Leesburg
