Key Considerations for Senior Dementia Care in Florida

Many seniors move to Florida for the beautiful beaches and warm weather. But over time, they can start experiencing symptoms of memory loss.

Élan Manatee | Florida Dementia Care
These five pals enjoyed a recent holiday celebration hosted by our community offering Florida dementia care.

When that happens to a loved one, their adult children might struggle to find ways to help them. Fortunately, the Sunshine State has trusted communities like Élan Manatee. Our Bradenton, Florida dementia care option is part of our exceptional senior living community.

The statistics highlight the need for this kind of quality care, and the benefits of communities like ours are essential.

Alzheimer’s Statistics and the Need for Florida Dementia Care

This country has a clear need for quality dementia care. Statistics from the Alzheimer’s Association show that approximately 5.7 million Americans over 65 are living with Alzheimer’s disease. Studies also show that about 580,000 seniors in Florida have Alzheimer’s.

The need for senior dementia care is now. Consider the following:

  • About 10.7 percent of people over 65 have Alzheimer’s in the US. That does not factor in other forms of dementia.
  • Seventy-three percent of people with Alzheimer’s are 75 or older, and most are women.
  • Alzheimer’s in America is expected to double to 13 million people by 2050 due to the growing older generation.
  • We will need 1.2 million additional direct care workers by 2030 to meet that demand.
  • About two-thirds of dementia caregivers are women.
  • About 25 percent of dementia caregivers are “sandwich generation” caregivers: They care for an older parent and at least one child.

Learning About Dementia: Alzheimer’s and Dementia Explained

Dementia is an umbrella term for a decline in brain function that affects a person’s ability to:

  • Think
  • Reason
  • Communicate

Alzheimer’s is just one of the many forms of dementia. None of them are normal parts of aging.

The signs and symptoms of dementia can vary from person to person, but common things to look out for include:

  • Memory loss is often the most notable symptom of dementia, particularly in the early stages. A person with dementia may forget recently learned information, important dates or events, or have difficulty retaining new information.
  • Difficulty with language can present with difficulty finding words, understanding language, or issues with speaking or writing clearly.
  • Trouble completing familiar tasks can also be a sign of dementia. For example, your loved one might forget how to tie shoelaces or prepare a routine meal.
  • Problems with spatial orientation and visuospatial abilities can also occur in people with dementia. They may have difficulty judging distances and depth perception, which can make activities like driving dangerous.
  • Changes in mood and personality are also common symptoms of dementia. A person with dementia may experience sudden mood swings or personality changes and become confused, suspicious, or even paranoid.
  • Wandering poses significant concerns when individuals with dementia get lost in familiar places.
  • Confusion of time and place makes people with dementia become disoriented about the time of day, date, or their current location. That can cause anxiety and distress.

It’s important to note that these symptoms do not always directly indicate dementia. Other conditions can cause them. If your loved one is experiencing these symptoms, it’s vital to consult with a medical professional. You may need to consider senior dementia care in Florida.

Who cares for older adults with Alzheimer’s or dementia?

Family members are often the primary caregivers for loved ones with Alzheimer’s or dementia. While this can be a labor of love, it can also come with significant challenges and stress.

Seniors who have moved to Florida for retirement may not have nearby family to support them. The average monthly cost for in-home care is $5,720. However, people with dementia will eventually need 24-hour care and supervision, which can cost over $18,000 per month. That makes it an unaffordable option for many older adults.

Élan Manatee can be a cost-effective and enjoyable option for Florida dementia care. Our assisted living and memory care community provides personalized support for seniors. We help them maintain their independence in a supportive environment.

The Benefits of Senior Dementia Care in Florida

Senior communities with assisted living and memory care offer higher levels of care for seniors who require support with daily living tasks. They also provide specialized care for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Unlike independent living or retirement villages, these communities provide an environment where residents benefit from:

  • Skilled, compassionate, certified caregivers on-site
  • Personal medical alert systems
  • Medication management
  • As-needed, personalized assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, transferring, and incontinence
  • Housekeeping and personal laundry service
  • Scheduled transportation
  • Wellness programs
  • Themed events and group activities
  • Scheduled outings

Memory care communities offer tailored care and support for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia. They feature specialized programming, activities, and environments that promote relaxation and comfort. Élan Manatee provides a sense of community, socialization, and a range of activities to keep residents active and engaged.
