What to Consider About Memory Care in Palm Coast
Palm Coast offers sunny days, natural landscaping and ocean views to families and their loved ones in need of memory care for Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 26.6 percent of the area's population is at or above the age of 65. To provide for the needs of seniors who require memory care services, Palm Coast offers three facilities to choose from.
Memory care facilities are classified as assisted living facilities (ALFs) and are licensed through Florida's Bureau of Health Facility Regulation. To offer memory care services, the ALF must have 24-hour monitoring services in place, must provide an appropriate environment and activities, and staff must receive extra training in dementia-specific care.
- Seniors who are sensitive to the cold can enjoy Palm Coast's warmer climate. July highs average 90 degrees Fahrenheit while January lows hover at 46 degrees. The area sees no snow but the high humidity and average annual rainfall of 52 inches may be uncomfortable for those who prefer drier climates.
- The city is considered safer than just 37 percent of U.S. cities overall but, when compared to other areas of similar size and population, shows a crime rate that is lower than average, but families with loved ones receiving memory care should still take safety precautions.
