    What to Consider About Memory Care in Manatee County

    Manatee County is located south of Tampa and has a population of 385,571, and 26.8 percent of these people, or about 95,000, are age 65 or older. Many of those seniors may be suffering from Alzheimer's disease and may need memory care, either now or in the future.

    It's estimated that nearly 10,000 seniors in Manatee County are living with dementia, and the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration is licensing, regulating and governing extended congregate care facilities (ECCs) to house and treat those with cognitive impairments. Manatee County has 14 ECCs in Bradenton and 2 in Lakewood Ranch.

    • Manatee County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Manatee Memorial Hospital and Bradenton Community Based Outpatient Clinic, in the event of a medical emergency or illness.
    • The violent crime rate is 45 compared to the U.S. average of 31.1. This is based on a 100 point scale with 1 being the safest. The U.S. average for property crime is 38.1, while Manatee County's is 51.8. Families might want to look into what types of security measures an ECC has in place.
    • It doesn't snow in Manatee County, but it does rain 55 inches per year, which is considerably higher than the U.S. national average of 39 inches. The national average of 205 sunny days annually is lower than Manatee County's average of 244. Seniors' health could benefit from the balmy weather. Winter lows only fall to 49 degrees, and summer highs stay below 92. Manatee County received an 83 out of 100 in Sperling's Comfort Index.
    • Cost of living ratings are based on a U.S. median of 100 across all categories. Manatee County's overall cost of living is 112.6, with a housing expense of 135 that really has a pronounced effect on COL average. Healthcare is 10 percent lower, so these expenses may not rise too much too fast.
