    What to Consider About Memory Care in Sumter County

    Sumter County is west of Orlando and has a population of 125,165 residents. About 56.9 percent, or roughly 75,000, of those people are age 65 or older, and it's likely that as many as 7,000 of them have Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia.

    The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration is responsible for licensing, regulating and inspecting specialized assisted living communities called Extended Congregate Care (ECC) facilities to treat older people with cognitive ailments. There are five ECCs in Sumter County.

    • Sumter County's annual rainfall of 51 inches is greater than the U.S. average by 12 inches. The sun shines 233 days in a normal year. Summer high temperatures rise to a pleasant 91 degrees, and the January lows are a temperate 45. Sumter County scored a 76 out of 100 in Sperling's Comfort Index, compared to the U.S. average of 54. The pleasant weather can have a positive effect on seniors with chronic conditions, such as respiratory issues or painful joints.
    • Florida doesn't have a state income tax. Families and elderly members may find that their fixed income lasts longer, and the extra cash can be spent on memory care.
    • The cost of living in Sumter County is 108.9, which is 9 points higher than the U.S. median. All of the cost of living categories are within a few points of the state and national averages, so families looking for an ECC in this area may not pay extra for household expenses or healthcare.
    • The violent crime rate of 23.7 in Sumter County is nearly 30 percent lower than the U.S. average of 31.1, and the 26.4 property crime rate is also 30 percent less than the national average. Family members should ask about any extra security measures in place to increase the safety of all the residents of the facility.
