Page Reviewed / Updated – January 24, 2024

Located on the Atlantic northeast coast, St. Augustine, FL, lays claim to being the oldest city in the United States. Although home to only 15,200 residents, more than 25% are aged 65 and older, almost 10% more than the national average. In addition to the region’s senior-friendly climate, St. Augustine’s seniors benefit from more physicians per capita when compared to the national average and notable dementia care support via St. John’s County Council on Aging. The city is also home to Flagler Hospital, a well-respected facility rated high-performing in several medical procedures.

Because memory care residents require greater support, costs are typically 20-30% more than assisted living. Adding 25% to St. Augustine’s assisted living average finds the city’s median monthly memory care fee to be $5,825. This is $200 per month more than the national average and $825 more than Florida’s norm.

Note: Data for St. Augustine was unavailable, so data for the nearest city, Jacksonville, was used instead.

Families with loved ones facing cognitive decline have a choice of memory care communities in and around St. Augustine. They provide high levels of compassionate care, which includes assistance with activities of daily living and the management of programs designed to slow down dementia’s advance.

Read on and we’ll introduce you to the six best memory care communities St. Augustine has to offer.

Silver Creek

Silver Creek's enchanting setting contributes to its inclusion on the list, particularly the small lakes to the front and the woodland protecting the rear. Staff is on-hand 24/7 to administer all aspects of care, including the memory care program, which draws on the senior's life experiences. They create meaningful activities for each resident that help them make connections through memory, such as conversations centered on family photographs. Care and entertainment merge with some activities, such as movie nights with classics from seniors' younger years and board games that double as brain training. Gentle exercises each morning help residents maintain their fitness, and managed activities, such as sing-a-longs, promote the social aspects of care.

Brookdale St. Augustine

Brookdale St. Augustine's peaceful location within walking distance of several medical facilities helps it make the list.

Each event covers a different aspect of the senior's care, such as mentally stimulating games and B-Fit, a health program involving walking groups and dancing. Seniors with more advanced dementia enter the Solace program, which provides more comprehensive care, including extra time for grooming and aromatherapy. Numerous features help keep residents safe, including an enclosed courtyard and emergency alert systems. Seniors' living spaces are studio apartments with private bathrooms.
