Situated on the southern outskirts of the balmy Tampa area, the approximately 23,500-resident Sun City Center is one of Florida’s many senior enclaves. The average age is 72.7 years, considerably higher than the state and national average of 41.6 and 37.7, respectively. The long summers of the Florida peninsula can get fairly hot, with temperatures hovering around 90. However, the extraordinarily mild winters make the area quite a draw for seniors — even in the coldest months, lows rarely drop below the 50s and highs regularly hit the 70s.

According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020, Sun City Center has home care costs that are extremely close or identical to nationwide costs. In Sun City Center, home care services cost an average of $4,385 a month; nationally, the equivalent cost is $4,481. Average costs for home health aide services are $4,576 in Sun City Center and the wider U.S.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Sun City Center, so data for the closest city, North Port, was used.

Sun City Center Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Sun City Center:

Home Care for the Elderly Program

Address: 4040 Esplanade Way, Tallahassee, FL 32399-7000
Phone number: (850) 414-2000

The Home Care for the Elderly Program provides basic financial subsidies to help seniors in private shared housing arrangements stay afloat. The basic subsidy is $160 per month, but participants may apply for special subsidies to pay for their medication, assistive devices and other similar needs. Florida residents age 60 and over are eligible for this program; over 150,000 checks are sent out each year. 

Emergency Home Energy Assistance for the Elderly Program

Address: Tampa Service Center, 9393 North Florida Avenue, Tampa, FL 33612
Phone number: (800) 963-5337

This program works to rescue older Florida residents from dangers caused by heating or cooling emergencies in their households. Beneficiaries of the EHEAP program may receive up to $1,000 per season; heating season is defined as October through March, and cooling season is defined as April through September. Benefits may be used to pay vendors directly or to replace broken HVAC equipment. A household must have at least one member 60 years of age or older living in it to apply; income limits apply as well. 

Bureau of Elder Rights

Address: 4040 Esplanade Way, Tallahassee, FL 32399-7000
Phone number: (850) 414-2000

This state agency’s portfolio includes an Alzheimer’s Disease Initiative that helps primary caregivers through respite care and support groups, an elder abuse prevention program that works to combat neglect and various types of exploitation and a long-term care ombudsman program that advocates for the rights and safety of seniors in such care arrangements. Its Florida Abuse Hotline (1-800-962-2873) helps seniors and concerned third parties quickly report any suspected cases of elder abuse.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – oftentimes it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
