    What to Consider About Memory Care in Ruskin

    The population of Ruskin is close to 20,000, including 1,940 (9.7 percent) people aged 65 and over. Hillsborough County, Ruskin's home county, has some 1,409,600 residents, and 23,925 (17 percent) of them are likely to have Alzheimer's disease or dementia, according to Elder Affairs.

    Nine memory care facilities are in the immediate vicinity, with one being in Ruskin and eight in nearby Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sun City and other surrounding communities. Assisted living facilities that wish to house and care for Alzheimer's patients must observe Florida law and get an Extended Congregate Care license.

    • Ruskin is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as St. Joseph's Hospital - SouthSouth Bay Hospital is just a few miles away in the event of a medical emergency or illness.
    • Families and seniors who appreciate nice weather enjoy the comfortable climate in Ruskin that has no snowfall, summer high temperatures of 91 degrees and winter lows of 51. The average U.S. city has 205 sunny days while Ruskin has 244. Average yearly rainfall is only 13 inches more than the national average, at 52 and 39 inches respectively. These benchmarks earn Ruskin a Sperling's Comfort Index of 80 out of a possible 100, which is 26 points higher than the U.S. average index.
    • Crime rankings are measured from one for lowest to 100 for highest crime rates. Ruskin's 45.7 violent crime rank is 14 points higher than the U.S. average of 31.1, and its 43.4 property crime rank is only five points higher than the national average of 38.1. Memory care facilities often have an added layer of protection with security systems and personnel. 
    • Another benefit to living in Florida is its lack of a state income tax. This is especially nice for those families with a senior member who receives a retirement pension or Social Security payments. The extra money can be applied toward the cost of memory care in Ruskin.
