What to Consider About Memory Care in Wesley Chapel

In Wesley Chapel, as well as in the rest of Florida, memory care facilities are licensed under the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, Bureau of Health Facility Regulation. They’re typically located in secured wings of assisted living facilities and have increased requirements related to staffing, staff training and activities programming.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Wesley Chapel

  • Florida doesn’t have a state income tax, so seniors hang onto a larger portion of their Social Security benefits, pension income and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts. This may make memory care expenses in Wesley Chapel feasible for seniors and families with financial limitations.
  • AdventHealth Wesley Chapel is located in the city proper and features a range of primary and specialty care services, as well as a 24-hour emergency department. Health care costs in this city come in a little below national norms, and while there are only 129 doctors per capita, many memory care facilities provide telemedicine services or have visiting physicians who provide routine medical care.
  • Temperatures in Wesley Chapel range from lows of 47 in the winter to highs of 91 in the summer, which is typical of the state. The city gets 53 inches of rain and no snow, and humidity levels tend to be stifling during the summer months.

Memory care facilities provide safe environments for vulnerable seniors and typically have security features such as door alarms and surveillance cameras.
  • Wesley Chapel’s overall cost of living is a little higher than state and national norms, primarily because of relatively high housing and transportation costs.
