Aventura is a densely populated suburban city located midway between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. It boasts excellent beaches, restaurants, parks and Florida’s largest shopping mall. Seniors comprise a far above-average 27.9% of its 40,000+ residents, which suggests it’s popular with older citizens. This may partly be explained by the region’s excellent health care facilities, low rates of violent crime and air quality.
Aventura’s assisted living facilities provide their residents with the comforts of home. Their private or semiprivate rooms are often furnished with objects from home, chefs prepare nutritious meals three times a day, and staff manage mentally and physically stimulating on-site activities. They also help with daily living tasks as required, such as dressing and eating, and help residents manage their medications. The median fee for assisted living in Aventura is $4,385 per month, which is above Florida’s average but below the country’s norm.
