For these seniors, living in one of Leon County's nine memory care facilities may deliver the specialized care they require.

These measures ensure Leon County's memory care facilities deliver high-quality care for seniors in need.

    • Cost of living in Leon County is similar to the national average. While housing and grocery costs are below average, healthcare costs are above average. Seniors' families may want to consider these factors when budgeting for memory care facility expenses.
