What to Consider About Memory Care in Marion County

Marion County is in the center of the Florida panhandle, north of Orlando, with the city of Ocala as the county seat. It has a population of 354,353 residents. About 90,000 of those people are age 65 or older, and as many as 11,000 of them are estimated to be living with Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia.

To support those living in Marion County, there are nine specialized assisted living facilities, called Extended Congregate Care (ECC), in the cities of Ocala and Dunnellon. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration licenses and regulates them.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Marion County's annual rainfall of 51 inches is more than the national average of 39 by 12 inches. It never receives snowfall, and the sun shines 233 days annually. Summer high temperatures top out at 93 degrees, and the winter lows are a pleasant 43. Marion County scored a 74 out of 100 in Sperling's Comfort Index, compared to the U.S. average of 54.
  • Florida does not have a state income tax, and seniors receive favorable treatment by the Department of Revenue. Families and elderly members may find extra money in the budget after bills are paid that can be spent on continued care, as needed.
  • The cost of living in Marion County is 108, which is only 8 points higher than the U.S. median. All categories are within a few points of the average, so families looking for an ECC in this area should not expect to pay extra for basic living expenses.
  • The violent crime rate here is higher than the U.S. average, and the property crime rate is a little less. Family members should feel comfortable knowing that the city is a safe environment for seniors, and the extra security measures implemented by the ECC regulations can increase the safety of all the patients at the facility.
