    What to Consider About Memory Care in West Melbourne

    West Melbourne, Florida, is home to approximately 22,000 residents, one-fifth of whom are 65 years of age or older.  Along with a warm and predictable year-round climate, the city offers nine memory care facilities for those seniors in the community with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. 

    In West Melbourne, like the rest of Florida, memory care facilities are classified by the state as Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) and are regulated by the Department of Elder Affairs. Since nearly one in 40 people have Alzheimer’s disease in Florida, memory care facility staff must be explicitly trained by a state-approved educator in order to serve those with Alzheimer's or any other form of dementia.

    • Florida is considered one of seven retirement tax-friendly states throughout the country. Since income, such as Social Security retirement benefits is untaxed, West Melbourne offers seniors or family members the opportunity to save more money, which can make a difference for those seeking memory care on a budget.
    • Air quality throughout the United States is measured by the EPA through The National Air Toxics Assessment. Based on this examination, West Melbourne's air quality is considered 14 percent better than the national average air quality.  Since bad air can cause irritated eyes and throats and create shortness of breath for seniors, West Melbourne might be an appealing option for memory care because of its above-average air quality.
    • Though the average cost of living in West Melbourne is five percent higher than the national average, the cost of living in West Melbourne is cheaper than the average cost throughout Florida. Those looking for a more affordable area in Florida for memory care could consider West Melbourne. 
    • Over 80 percent of all communities throughout the United States are considered safer than West Melbourne. A senior has a one in 35 chance of becoming a victim of crime in West Melbourne, with a crime rate of 29 crimes per 1,000 residents.
