Sunrise, Florida, has a population just over 97,000 people, and approximately 17.7% of its residents are seniors ages 65 and older. While memory-related illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, are affecting a lower number of Sunrise seniors than they were prior, they are still a risk. From 2014 to 2018, Alzheimer’s-related deaths dropped from 422 to 371, while total deaths rose from 10,867 to 11,345. As of 2018, 3.27% of all deaths in the area were due to Alzheimer’s. 

Memory care facilities in Sunrise offer services that help keep that rate low and improve the quality of life for seniors affected by Alzheimer’s. These facilities keep residents safe with 24-hour supervision, design therapy plans to slow the progression of the disease and assist seniors with activities of daily living. In this article, we’ll discuss the positives and negatives of care options in Sunrise, the costs of memory care in the area and resources available to affected seniors and their loved ones.

COVID-19 Rules for Memory Care in Sunrise

Since most COVID-19 rules for Memory Care Communities and other Senior Living Facilities are set at the state level, you can view the specific rules for your state on our Guide to Memory Care in Florida. Keep in mind that every community has specific policies that they put in place to protect their residents, so you should contact your local community for more information. Additionally, you can contact your local Area Agency on Aging to learn more – find contact information here.

What to Consider About Memory Care in Sunrise

All assisted living facilities in Florida, regardless of type and size, are overseen by the Bureau of Health Facility Regulation. The bureau is responsible for licensing facilities, certifying them for Medicare and Medicaid and creating regulations for all health care facilities in the area. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Sunrise

  • Although it’s not a member of the AARP, Sunrise does have history with the organization. The city has worked with the AARP on a grant project to better the community. 
  • Sunrise has a lower crime rate for both property and violent crime than the statewide rate. In this city, residents are half as likely to become a victim of violent crime and 24% less likely to experience property crime. 
  • Sunrise has a higher cost of living than Florida’s average and the national average, but it’s lower than other nearby cities, such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. The higher cost may be worth it for the benefits of the community, though. 
  • Sunrise is in southern Florida, so its average temperature is usually high. This can be great for seniors who want to enjoy the sun or don’t want to experience snowfall in the winter. The city also sees some rain in the summer months but much less during autumn and winter. 
  • The city has quite a few health care facilities spread throughout it. This can be very beneficial for memory care homes in the case of medical emergencies they’re not equipped to handle. 
  • Sunrise has an air quality rating of fair. This rating is common and is acceptable to most people. Some sensitive persons, however, may experience slight symptoms after prolonged exposure. Fair is the second-highest rating of six on the scale.

Paying for Memory Care in Sunrise

Because of the additional services involved in memory care, the average cost is 20%-30% higher than regular assisted living. As there is no authoritative source for the cost of memory care services, we added 25% to the assisted living cost from the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. Using this method, the mean cost of memory care in Sunrise, Florida, is estimated at $5,481 per month. 

The Cost of Memory Care in Nearby Cities

At $5,481 monthly, Sunrise is most comparable to Cape Coral, which costs an average of $5,418 per month. Sunrise’s average is higher than Florida’s (at $5,000) but lower than the national average of $5,625 and Palm Bay at $5,576. It’s also higher than some nearby areas, such as Port St. Lucie, in which seniors pay an average of $4,704. Naples, however, has a much higher monthly cost than Sunrise at $6,625.
