Back to search results

Fort Lauderdale weather ranges from around 68 to 83 degrees Fahrenheit. With the rest of the country on a seasonal roller coaster ranging in temperatures from 0 to 100, you can see why tourists come here year-round. From November through April the balmy breezes are at their breeziest and everyone up north is freezing.

“The weather is the number one attraction,” says Christopher MacLellan, Certified Senior Advisor and author of What's The Deal with Caregiving, who lives near Fort Lauderdale. “It is the sunshine state and people feel better when they get outside. You can’t put a price tag on the happiness and depression-fighting power of being in the sun.”

Hurricanes are a weather issue, but the area's assisted living facilities are used to them by now. They have plans in place to manage resident care during seriously inclement weather.

Fort Lauderdale Neighborhoods

When it comes to choosing a neighborhood, it’s simply a matter of what suits you best. Do you prefer inland to shoreline? Do you like the calm bay vs. busy ocean? Are you looking for a quieter setting as opposed to an assisted living in the thick of things downtown? Want a more affordable neighborhood vs. a costly one?

The good news is there are many fabulous Fort Lauderdale neighborhoods – easy to get around, with close proximity to highways, downtown and hospitals.

Options range from fancier areas such as Downtown Fort Lauderdale, Bal Harbour, Victoria Park, Rio Vista, Colee Hammock, Sailboat Bend, and The Isles, to other nice spots such s Poinsettia Heights, Lake Ridge, Middle River Terrace, South Middle River, Dorsey-Riverbend, and Lauderdale Manors.

There aren’t a lot of walkable neighborhoods, but onsite events, transportation organized by assisted living communities, and group tours make it relatively easy for residents to get around. And some assisted living communities are so large, they seem like mini-cities unto themselves.

Assisted Living Community Options

With over 156 assisted living options in the Fort Lauderdale area, there are communities for just about every taste, price range, and lifestyle. Some are on the smaller side, like Williamsburg Landing or the Royal Palm Senior Residence. Others, such as the resort-like Park Summit or the 18-acre Willow Wood are large and look like self-contained mini-cities. At all of them, you can expect the basics to be covered: housing, safety, meals, and activities.

“There’s a lot of competition,” says MacLellan, “which is good for the consumer. My experience is that assisted living communities in Fort Lauderdale know they have to up their game, which means you find high quality even on the lower cost end.” You’ll also find all levels of resident support, ranging from minimal and mid-range assistance (e.g. medication management, help with dressing and personal care) to more extensive care for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Focus on Health and Eldercare

Florida knows its residents, and the state’s focus on health and eldercare reflects that. There are numerous excellent doctors, hospitals, senior centers, and agencies in the Fort Lauderdale area to care for the aging population.

In Fort Lauderdale, Holy Cross Hospital is ranked number 7 on U.S. News & World Report's list of Best Hospitals in Florida, and Broward Health is number 16. Other nationally ranked hospitals in the area include Fort Lauderdale Hospital, Broward Health Imperial Point, and Kindred Hospital.

Organizations such as the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) and Florida's Department of Elder Affairs look after the elderly and offers access to programs and services. In fact, the Governor signed a new law into effect on July 1, 2015, enforcing regulation and boosting training for assisted living facilities.

Assisted Living Activities

We’ve all heard the jokes about South Florida being the stereotypical retirement epicenter, with bored seniors rocking in their chairs. But Fort Lauderdale is a far more dynamic locale these days, both for residents and their families and friends.

There’s a thriving art community, especially in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, with festivals, exhibits and a $100 million art in public spaces program. The Museum of Art offers both permanent and traveling exhibits of the world’s most notable works.

Assisted living communities in the area offer plenty of water activities, from water aerobics to boat trips like the Jungle Queen Riverboat, for those who want to take in the sights as they glide across the water.

Much history in South Florida goes unnoticed, but not if you make a trip to the Bonnet House in Broward County or Flaglar Museum in nearby Palm Beach. There are many churches, too, catering to all denominations and senior centers appealing to all tastes.

Of course, the weather makes it a perfect spot for nature-oriented and the outdoors, and many assisted living communities in Fort Lauderdale organize scenic drives so residents can take advantage of the area’s natural attributes. Grandchildren might especially love outdoor activities such as Flamingo Gardens Botanical Gardens and Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary and Butterfly World.

Cost of Assisted Living

Fort Lauderdale assisted living costs are relatively affordable, and range from less ($2,000 and up) to more expensive, depending on amenities. Compared to nearby areas with a higher cost of living, such as Palm Beach, which is only 47 miles away, it’s quite a difference!

Typical assisted living costs include food, some shared transportation (e.g. group bus trips to a restaurant or store), and activities. But if you’re looking for more extravagant options, such as pools and fine dining, they can also be found in Fort Lauderdale.

Transportation Options

Fort Lauderdale is more of a driving town, but with plenty of public transportation options. Broward County Transit offers buses to just about anywhere you want to go, from parks to shops to other activities. While most assisted living communities offer transport to local trips and tours, you can also enlist your own wheels with shared rides like Errand and Transportation Services, or taxicabs and Uber, both of which are prevalent.
