Interested in living areas more suitable for a 55 active adult?


Downsizing is a big decision and can be a mammoth task. Moving to a smaller home in retirement must be done wisely. First, it is good to get a good estimate of your current home’s worth. Consult with one or more real estate agents for an evaluation. Then calculate how much it will cost to buy a home in the area you plan to move to. There are plenty of retirement communities in Jacksonville, many with age restriction resort-style amenities, but the cost of living there varies. Also, look carefully at the tax implications of such a move. Consult with your tax professional or financial planner.

Senior Care Resources

Living with or caring for people with a loss of memory has a unique set of challenges. It will always be difficult to watch a loved one progress through the stages of dementia. In fact, 1 out of 10 adults over the age of 65 has Alzheimer’s dementia. The risk of having cognitive impairment continuously grows as Jacksonville’s senior population does so.

It’s considered best for the elderly suffering from dementia to stay in their own home, surrounded by things they know, for as long as possible. It may be difficult to know the ideal time to put your loved one in a long-term care facility, but if at any point their safety is compromised it might be time to consider full-time care.

A person with dementia should stop living alone if they’re experiencing injuries, wandering outside the home, or otherwise putting themselves in dangerous situations. Ask yourself whether your senior family member’s safety needs are being met and if extra assistance will keep them safe.

We have a set of guides for you that can help you find the best facilities in Jacksonville, Florida together with information that can help you understand Alzheimer’s or Dementia better.
