What to Consider About Memory Care in Stuart

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration licenses all memory care communities in Stuart and promotes a consistent standard of care across the state by enforcing standardized rules for operation. To obtain licensing, facilities must comply with the department’s requirements for the scope of services they provide, as well as staffing, service planning and dementia-specific care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Stuart

 

  • Stuart has long, hot and humid summers with muggy conditions virtually 100% of the time and temperatures ranging from 86 to 89 degrees Fahrenheit. The weather remains warm throughout the winter, with daytime temperatures between 73 and 76 degrees Fahrenheit. To help residents stay comfortable throughout the year, many memory care communities have individual climate controls in residents’ rooms, as well as indoor activities and amenities.

 

  • Out of Florida’s 67 surveyed counties, Stuart’s Martin County ranks fifth, and it ranks in the top percentiles, for health factors and outcomes. Of its Medicare beneficiaries, about 55% get the annual flu shot, reducing the spread of seasonal illnesses in memory care communities, and the local air quality fares favorably compared to the state norm.

 

  • The cost of living in Stuart runs 15% higher than the national average. Housing costs run 15% higher here than in a typical U.S. city, driving this overall increase, but fortunately, many memory care communities promote affordability through all-inclusive pricing structures.

 

  • In Stuart, residents see about 11.53 crimes per 1,000 people annually, most of which are nonviolent. This falls below 52% of Florida communities and 43% of U.S. cities and compares favorably with cities with similarly sized populations, providing peace of mind for families seeking memory support in the region.

 

  • Florida ranks among the few states with no state income tax, leaving more money in seniors’ pockets for memory care expenses. Additionally, the state doesn’t impose sales taxes on prescription or over-the-counter medications, which may maximize affordability in Stuart for seniors.

Paying for Memory Care in Stuart

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates.

Memory care communities in Stuart charge approximately $4,704 per month for services.
