    What to Consider About Memory Care in Ocala

    Like much of Florida, Ocala has a large senior population, with over 18 percent of the 59,000 residents aged over 65. The state also has a large number of people with Alzheimer's; it is estimated that 520,000 Floridians have been diagnosed with the disease. Ocala has 10 memory care facilities that offer assistance to people diagnosed with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, and there are a further seven in nearby communities.

    Florida's Bureau of Health Facility Regulation Licenses Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) in the state. ALFs that provide special care to people with dementia must meet special requirements, including additional staffing numbers, specialized, ongoing training and buildings that provide for the safety and welfare of residents.

    • Florida has no state income tax, so seniors keep all their retirement income from pensions, Social Security and retirement funds. This means that people with dementia and their families have more money available for memory care.
    • Ocala has a high crime rate. On a scale of one to 100, where one is the worst, Ocala is ranked three, and it is less safe than 95 percent of Florida's other towns and cities. When touring a memory care facility, families should consider asking about security to understand how their loved one is being protected.
    • Ocala can be hot, and it is humid during the wet season that runs from June to September. The average high temperature in July is around 92 degrees and families should ask how residents are kept comfortable during extreme heat. Temperatures stay warm throughout the year and the average low in January is 44 degrees.
    • The Ocala area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Orlando.
