    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Cocoa

    Cocoa is located in Brevard County and has a population of 17,558. It is home to six assisted living facilities (ALFs) with another 25 in nearby cities in central Florida. Florida’s Department of Elder Affairs defines an ALF as a residential care facility that provides an array of services to residents not requiring 24-hour care. These services include housing, meals and personal care.

    ALFs in Florida may acquire one of three specialty licenses. An extended congregate care license permits the ALF to offer additional services, including complete bathing and grooming assistance, dietary and nutrition management and coordination of medical appointments. Additionally, an ALF with a limited nursing services license can apply routine dressings, perform nursing assessments and administer portable oxygen. Any ALF with three or more mental health patients must obtain a limited mental health license.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Cocoa

    • Cocoa sits on Florida’s Atlantic Coast, delivering year-round warm weather. Average high temperatures in the summer reach the upper 80s, and humidity levels soar. During the winter, average high temperatures are moderate in the low 70s. A coastal breeze is common.
