What to Consider About Assisted Living in Boca Raton

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration monitors, inspects and licenses assisted living facilities across the state. It grants licenses to companies that satisfy the legal, fire safety, insurance and health and safety requirements within its guidelines. The department also has the authority to remove licenses from underperforming facilities that fail to raise their standards.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Boca Raton

  • Several hospitals serve seniors in Boca Raton, with many more within a short distance of the city. Within the city’s boundaries is Boca Raton Regional Hospital, a large facility specializing in many fields, including neurology, dermatology and orthopedics. There is also the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, which treats patients during all stages of cancer and has the expertise to address more than 40 variations of the illness.
  • The average cost of living index for Boca Raton is 121, which is significantly higher than the state and national averages. However, the index is skewed by the city’s exceptional property and transportation costs. When looking closely at some specific indices relevant to seniors in assisted living, such as healthcare, Boca Raton is in line with the state median and below the national average.
  • Florida’s climate is one of the features that draw seniors to the state, and Boca Raton is no different. Temperatures range from a comfortably cool 58 degrees in January to a pleasantly warm 90 degrees in July. The city also enjoys 231 sunny days annually. 
  • Boca Raton’s crime statistics are good and bad. Property crime is a little over the national average and more so when compared to Florida’s median figures. However, crimes involving violence are not as common as they are across the state and the country. The chances of being a victim of violent crime in Boca Raton are 1 in 449 compared to 1 in 258 for the entire state of Florida.
  • Florida doesn’t tax residents on their incomes, which includes pensions and Social Security benefits. Consequently, retirees can hold on to more of their money. It also doesn’t have an inheritance tax or estate tax, so seniors can pass on more of their wealth to their loved ones. Older residents can get personalized information and advice on tax matters from the taxpayer service centers in Coral Springs and West Palm Beach. 
  • Boca Raton has an admirable health cost index of 96.3, which is better than the national average of 100. This is partly due to its excellent air quality and significant number of Medicare-registered physicians.
