What to Consider About Memory Care in Plantation

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration regulates all memory care facilities in Plantation and enforces a high standard of care through licensing and regular inspections. Facilities are required to follow the same rules as assisted living facilities for nutrition services, care planning and recreation, as well as dementia-specific rules for staffing, staff training and security.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Altamonte Springs

  • Plantation is a relatively expensive place to live, with an overall cost of living that exceeds state and national norms by 20%. This is mainly due to high housing costs, which may make residential dementia care a preferred alternative to living alone for vulnerable seniors who may have difficulty with money management.
  • HCA Florida Westside Hospital is located in Plantation proper, giving residents access to a range of primary, specialty and emergency care services. The hospital has a neurology department with board-certified neurologists and clinicians who treat a range of neurological diseases and injuries. It also publishes information on dementia and related topics.  
  • Florida doesn’t have a state income tax, which may make it a budget-friendly retirement destination for seniors who rely on income from various sources. Because residents don’t pay taxes on income, even on retirement savings they earned in other states, they may be able to afford local memory care services.
  • The air quality in the Plantation region is decent, which may support the health of those living with the cardiovascular or respiratory conditions that often accompany dementia. The American Lung Association gives Broward County the highest score for ozone pollution to reflect its low levels of smog. Additionally, the region has a passing score for annual particle pollution and a moderate grade of C for 24-hour particle pollution.
  • Plantation’s summers are warm and humid, with average daytime temperatures around 90 degrees Fahrenheit and conditions that are muggy or worse 43% of the time. Winters are pleasant, however, with daytime temperatures around 78 degrees Fahrenheit. While rain falls throughout the year, June is the wettest month with an average of 6.4 inches of rainfall. To keep residents comfortable and active year-round, many memory care facilities have indoor and outdoor common areas that are fully secured to minimize the risk of wandering.
