    What to Consider About Memory Care in Santa Rosa County

    Santa Rosa County is on Florida's Gulf Coast, near Pensacola, and has 174,272 residents, including 27,000 people who are age 65 and older. From that group, the Alzheimer's Association estimates 2,800 may be living with dementia and would benefit from the care of an Extended Congregate Care facility (ECC), which is an assisted living unit that specializes in treating and supervising those with cognitive ailments. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration licenses and governs these ECCs. All four facilities in Santa Rosa County are in the city of Gulf Breeze.

    • The violent crime rate in Santa Rosa is 38.5 compared to the national average of 31.1, based on a 100 point scale with 100 being the most dangerous. The U.S. average for property crime is 38.1, while Santa Rosa County's is slightly lower at 37.8. Families may want to ask about the security measures an ECC uses to keep residents safe.
    • Santa Rosa County never receives snowfall, but it sees 67 inches of rain per year, which is more than an average U.S. city at 39. The national average of 205 sunny days annually is lower than Santa Rosa County's average of 228. Seniors' health could benefit from the balmy weather.

Santa Rosa County's overall cost of living is 105, with a housing expense of 106 and healthcare costs that are almost equal to the national average at 102. This may help families budget more money to care for a loved one in an ECC.
