Featuring 14 miles of beaches and striking Italian architecture, Venice is located along the Gulf Coast. Because Venice is in Florida, residents benefit from both great weather and the lack of a state income tax. Factors such as those have contributed to many seniors flocking to Venice: Of the city’s 23,086 residents, over 62% are seniors aged 65 and older. Among other medical facilities, Venice offers access to Venice Regional Bayfront Health, which has specialized stroke care and emergency services, and the SMH Care Center at Venice.

Venice’s seniors can choose from myriad high-quality home care and home health care options. The Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey reports that home care in Venice costs an average of $4,385 per month, which is slightly cheaper than the national monthly average cost of $4,481. As for home health care, both Venice and the United States as a whole have average monthly costs of $4,576.

Note: Home care cost data was not available for Venice, so data for the closest city, North Port, was used. 

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Venice area – complete with types of care provided, services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Venice 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 Venice:

Senior Friendship Centers of Venice

Address: 2350 Scenic Drive, Venice, FL 34293
Phone Number: (941) 584-0075

The Venice campus of the Senior Friendship Centers offers several services relevant to seniors. Case managers can arrange forms of help such as housekeeping for older adults, while the Friendship at Home volunteer program sends visitors to keep isolated seniors company. Home-delivered meals and caregiver support are also available, as are one-time legal consultations and assistance with federal benefits programs.

Venice Area Mobile Meals, Inc.

Address: 920 Tamiami Trail South, Venice, FL 34285
Phone Number: (941) 488-1889

VAMMI is a nonprofit organization that may be of assistance to homebound seniors. The organization’s volunteers deliver lunches six times per week, excluding Sundays but including holidays. Individuals whose physical or mental disabilities prevent them from preparing meals on their own are eligible. Each meal is roughly 800 calories, and diabetes-friendly dessert options are available. Meals are $5 apiece.

Sarasota Office of Housing and Community Development

Address: 111 South Orange Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236
Phone Number: (941) 951-3640

The OHCD helps Sarasota County residents, including those in Venice, afford home upgrades and necessary fixes. It runs several programs, including two loan offerings that are based on the homeowner’s equity in the home. A third loan program is designed for when the homeowner’s equity is low, and it offers a maximum of $20,000 for repairs to critical home components, such as the electrical system and roof. There are also programs meant to ease utility payments and to make a home more accessible.

Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida

Address: 2830 Winkler Avenue, Suite 112, Fort Myers, FL 33916
Phone Number: (239) 652-6900

The AAASWFL is a multifaceted source of aid for older adults. Examples of its services include the Elder Helpline, which can point seniors toward helpful information and resources, and SHINE, which makes counselors available to answer questions about Medicare and related topics. Another program of note is Home and Community-Based Care, designed to make it more feasible for seniors to remain in their homes. 

Catholic Charities Financial Aid

Address: 1219 16th Street West, Bradenton, FL 34205
Phone Number: (941) 355-4680

The Catholic Charities organization operates a financial assistance program that can help older adults and families with critical expenses. Specifically, Sarasota County residents are eligible for one-time economic aid, which is meant to go toward rent or mortgage payments, utility bills, prescription medicine and additional important expenses. The program’s goal is to help individuals avoid poverty and maintain self-sufficiency.

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 – often times 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.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
