My husband and I are moving to Citrus County Fl in late Jan. I am concerned about the quality of medical care I can find there. Mainly for my husband. He has mild Dementia, Kidney disease and heart disease. I haven't heard anything good about health care for retirees in that area. Can someone please advise. Will I have to go to Ocala or Gainsville for medical care ?

You should ask in the Florida forum.

I agree about asking in the Florida forum. Ask not just about basic medical care, but also which doctors are recommended who accept new Medicare patients if you are on it, and also about dementia care, including dementia day care and assisted living facilities for dementia patients. I know that you said he had mild dementia but since I have a tendency to over plan, I would suggest that you do also, which is probably why you posted.

There are many websites to find that information, but you might want to plan a pre-move trip just to check things out and get set up before the final move.

What is your insurance carrier? You should look up the doctors that are in your plan. If medicare try the medicare.gov site to see what is available.
