    What to Consider About Memory Care in Port Charlotte

    Florida is home to 540,000 seniors who live with a memory-related disease such as Alzheimer's, dementia, or Huntington's. This is a growing concern across the country, including in the city of Port Charlotte, of which 29.6 percent of its population of 54,392 residents are 65 or older and many need memory care services. In order to better serve its senior citizens, Port Charlotte has 41 assisted living facilities that offer memory care services. They are regulated by the state, which requires annual training for qualified staff, security precautions and 24-hour support.

    • Port Charlotte may be a great place to live for seniors who don’t have much money. Port Charlotte is about seven percent less costly than the national average, and a little more than 18 percent cheaper than Florida’s overall average. This may enable those with a tight budget to afford a higher quality of assistance.
    • In addition to being cheaper than average, Port Charlotte is located in Florida, the seventh most tax-friendly state in the nation. State tax is a little high at 6.8 percent but balanced out by a lack of income tax and low property tax rates of 0.9 percent.
