When it comes to senior living there are a lot of options – especially if you’re looking in Florida. West Palm Beach is quickly becoming a go-to spot for senior living because of its proximity to the beach, affordable senior housing, and warm weather.
A national survey in 2020 found that on average residents paid $4,300/month for Assisted Living, and $8,800/month for Nursing Home Care.
Florida was a bit surprising — Assisted Living was lower at $3,700/month, and Nursing Home prices were higher at $9,750/month.
To help you find the best option, here’s our list of best senior communities in Florida.
