If you're looking for a slow pace, you might consider Florida's "Forgotten Coast", between St Marks (south of Tallahassee) on the east to Mexico Beach on the west. US Hwy 98 is the coastal road that runs thru the panhandle. The area is reminiscent of the way a lot of the Florida coast looked like 50-60 years ago. Lots of little fishing villages. With a working waterfront, fresh seafood is plentiful and reasonably priced at the the fish houses and in the local dives. Miles of relatively uninhabited beaches. Stroll, fish, or if you are brave enough, take a dip. RV Park reviews could be of help. Prices are reasonable for winter rates. I'm in and out of Tallahassee visiting family and enjoy a city park in Sopchoppy, Fl at $15/night FHUs. Don't know about extended camping as I'm in and out after a couple or three weeks. Good luck and I wish you the best with recovery.

Meaher SP is on the causeway between Spanish Fort and Mobile, AL. Nice paved sites, right on the bay. It's a beautiful park. And Mobile has some decent medical facilities, if you find you need them. Seafood along the causeway is divine--try the Blue Gill.

If you are retired Military, try Tyndall AFB.. or Eglin AFB.. or Pensacola NAS..

Along the "forgotten coast" is Carabelle with Carabelle RV Resort.. lots of amenities or Ho Hum Park that is on the water but doesn't have a lot going on.. If you want more busy lifestyle.. move towards Panama City, Destin and Pensacola.. that part of FL coast usually has something happening and the larger towns have more medical facilities to offer.
