    What to Consider About Memory Care in Melbourne

    According to the Alzheimer's Association, the state of Florida has the second highest rate of Alzheimer's in the country, with roughly 1 in 40 people living with the disease. Melbourne, a Florida city with a sizable senior community that accounts for nearly a quarter of the 82,000-person population, offers an array of resources to support and educate families and seniors with dementia.

    In addition to local resources, including The Alzheimer's Association, Central and North Florida Chapter, the city has six memory care facilities. Families who are looking for more options will find an additional five facilities outside the city limits. In Melbourne, memory care facilities may occupy their own facility, or they may be located within an assisted living facility that has a specialized care staff, staff training and activities specifically for residents with dementia. Both types of facilities are licensed through the Bureau of Health Facility Regulation. 

    • The cost of living in Melbourne is about 3 percent lower than the national average and 14 percent below the statewide average, which may make the city an appealing option for seniors with a limited budget.
    • Melbourne experiences warm temperatures year-round, making it a good option for seniors who enjoy being outdoors. The July high is around 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and the January lows are in the low-50s. The region receives 49 inches of rain annually, compared to the national average of 39 inches of rain, but most years see no snow. 
    • The crime rate in Melbourne is significantly higher than the regional, state and national averages. On a scale of one to 100, with 100 representing high crime, the violent crime rate in this city is 75.1 and the property crime rate is 57.8. This is compared to the respective state averages of 49.2 and 47.1 and the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1. Families who are researching memory care facilities in Melbourne may review each facility's security measures to keep residents safe.
    • The air quality in Brevard County, which is the county that Melbourne is in, is exceptional. The American Lung Association gave the region an A for both ozone pollution and short-term particle pollution, as well as a passing grade for annual particle pollution. The clean air may be beneficial for seniors who have cardiovascular disease or respiratory illnesses.
