What to Consider About Memory Care in Wildwood

Wildwood boasts a modest population of just 6,831, but many of its residents, nearly 38 percent, are aged 65 and older. The city is home to two memory care facilities, with another seven in nearby cities like Oxford and The Villages, that deliver high-quality care to seniors living with Alzheimer's disease and related memory disorders. The Alzheimer's Association reports that 540,000 seniors in Florida are living with the disease, and many of them may benefit from living in a memory care facility.

Families can trust that memory care facilities are capable of caring for seniors with Alzheimer's disease because the Florida Department of Elder Affairs regulates these facilities. In addition, any assisted living facility providing care to a resident with Alzheimer's disease is subject to additional training through the University of South Florida's Training Academy on Aging.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Wildwood

  • Wildwood's location in north central Florida makes it ideal for seniors looking to escape cold and snowy winters. It doesn't snow here, and winter low temperatures are in the 40s. Summers are hot, with high temperatures exceeding 90. Wildwood sees more rain than the national average but more sunny days as well.
  • Cost of living is another advantage of living in Wildwood. The city's cost of living comes in at 84.3, which is lower than the national average. Housing costs are particularly low. Likewise, memory care facility costs come in lower than the national median.
  • Florida is a tax-friendly state for seniors, offering another way for families to save money every month. Florida has no state income tax, which means it also doesn't tax Social Security income. Families should consider this tax savings when budgeting for memory care facility expenses in Wildwood.
  • Violent crime rates in Wildwood are higher than the national average, ranking 43.6 on a scale where one represents the safest city and 100 the most dangerous. Property crime rates are lower than average, however, coming in at 22.9. Families may want to ask about security measures that the memory care facilities in the area have in place.
