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.
