Florida has a ring to it that perhaps no other state in the country can replicate. It has long been known as a premiere destination for retirees and as some of them grow older, they transition into an assisted living community in order to keep enjoying this paradise they call home.

Florida has about the ideal climate if you don’t mind a little humidity in the summer. The winters are absolutely amazing, very mild and have no snow. The rest of the seasons are pleasant and warm, great for relaxing on the beach or exploring the state’s interior. The Atlantic shoreline provides some really incredible views.

Florida has 21+ million people. Perhaps more than any other state, a good percentage of them are seniors in need of assisted living and senior housing. Florida continues to grow at a rapid pace. It remains the third largest state in the nation, behind California and Texas.

In terms of health care and real estate, senior housing in the state is surprisingly affordable and senior living costs are no different. The state is extraordinarily friendly to the elderly in terms of taxes as well.

Some of the best assisted living facilities are built in Florida so you can expect lavish living standards all at a great value.

Assisted Living Costs for Florida

Florida is surprisingly cheap for assisted living despite its high demand. Part of the reason is there are so many facilities in the state that it is able to keep up with the large demand, and offer something for everyone.

Impressively, Florida ranks third in terms of affordability only behind Arkansas and West Virginia in terms of monthly assisted living costs. The average median for the state is $3,380 per month which is ludicrously affordable when you consider the national average is closer to $4,000 per month.

There are some high demand, waiting-list assisted living units that can reach prices of $5,000 to $5,500 per month, though for the most part Florida assisted living centers fit within most folks’ budget.

Madison, Quincy, Daytona Beach and Homestead are cities with the lowest monthly senior living rates based on median average. Ponte Vedra Beach, Fleming, and Lakewood Ranch are some of the most expensive.

In terms of counties, Madison, Gadsden, Hernando, and Highlands represent some of the most affordable regions in Florida for assisted living. Clay County and Okaloosa County have the two highest costs based on median average.

The Statewide Managed Medicaid Care - Long Term Care program may be able to assist with senior living costs. It recently replaced the HCBS Waivers for assisted living financial aid.
