Florida Senior Housing
Read about the local resources that can help you find senior housing in Florida.
In Florida, several different housing options exist for seniors. The most common are assisted living facilities and nursing homes (explained below), but other options include adult day care facilities, village communities, and continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs).
· Assisted Living Facilities: These facilities are ideal for seniors who can no longer live at home, yet do not need professional nursing care. These individuals usually require assistance with personal care, nursing supervision, medication monitoring, social opportunities, meals, housekeeping, and support services, but do not need the full-time care of nursing home residents.
· Nursing Homes: These residences provide round-the-clock skilled nursing care to those who require medical attention. Skilled care means nursing or rehabilitation staff is needed to manage, observe, and evaluate one's care. An example of skilled nursing care includes administering intravenous injections, but other types would include infusion therapy, wound care and medication management.
