What to Consider About Memory Care in Margate
Margate has warm weather all year round, which may be the reason why so many seniors call it home - over 20 percent of the city's 58,000 residents are over 65 years old. It's estimated that nearly 12 percent of Florida's senior population has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and there are over 70 memory care facilities in Margate and the surrounding communities to accommodate this population.
Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) in Florida are licensed and regulated by the Agency for Health Care Administration. ALFs that offer specialized care for residents with Alzheimer's disease and dementia must meet additional requirements for staffing numbers and training.
- Broward County, including Margate, has good air quality. The American Lung Association gave the county an "A" grade for 24-hour particle pollution and a "B" grade for ozone pollution in the State of the Air 2018 Report. Seniors with respiratory conditions may do well in this area.
- Florida has no state income tax, which means seniors keep more of their retirement income, whether it's from Social Security, pensions or retirement funds. Sales tax in the state is close to the national average, which leaves more money in the budget for memory care.
- The Margate area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Broward Health North, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Margate's overall crime rate is 20 crimes per 1,000 residents, which is lower than the national average for cities of a similar size.
