Lakeland, Florida

Memory Care

Memory care communities provide intensive medical care to seniors who have mental and physical health problems in a specialized care community. Care providers must receive dementia-specific education and staff must be available for support 24 hours-a-day. Basic services offered in memory care may include: daily meals, social programs and activities, 24-hour staffing and personal assistance, and comfortable private or semi-private rooms. Organized activities are provided by staff members trained explicitly on providing aid for seniors with cognitive impairments. Typically, residents in memory care need assistance with eating, bathing, and dressing. The monthly median cost for a private room is around $9,387 and the cost for a semi-private room is around $8,547 . The state of Florida maintains specific regulations related to this kind of community. The The Bureau of Health community Regulation regulates this community type.

Cost of Living

The cost of care for a community is determined by the neighborhood in which it is located. Per month, the median rent in Lakeland is about $670 per month and the median value of a house in Lakeland is about $112,796. The rent burden for Lakeland is about 15.2% of the average person's monthly income.
