What to Consider About Memory Care in Saint Johns County

Saint Johns County has a population of 385,571 within its borders on the Atlantic coast of Florida, just south of Jacksonville. An estimated 96,000 of those people are aged 65 and older, and ten percent of them are likely to be living with dementia. By the year 2025, the Alzheimer's Association is projecting the number of people in Florida with cognitive ailments will swell from 540,000 to 720,000, and demand for care will require more treatment facilities, or extended congregate care facilities (ECCs), as they are called in Florida.

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration is responsible for licensing and regulating these facilities.  There are about 33 ECCs near Saint John's County, with the vast majority of them being in Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach.

  • Saint Johns County receives 51 inches of rain per year, which is 12 more than an average U.S. city at 39. Its average of 224 sunny days yearly is 19 more than the national average of 205. Seniors' health may benefit from the balmy weather since winter lows only drop to 44 degrees, and summer highs just reach 91. Saint Johns County was awarded a 77 out of 100 in Sperling's Comfort Index.
  • The violent crime rate is almost even with the U.S. average of 31.1 at 30.4. This is based on a 100 point scale with one being the least dangerous.
