Davie is a rural community with over 106,000 residents, about 12% of whom are retirement-aged. This affluent city is sought out by retirees seeking warm weather throughout the year and accessible health care services. While the city’s overall cost of living is high compared to the rest of Florida, the lack of state income tax may enable older adults to maintain their preferred standard of living.  

Seniors who want to maintain their independence but need a helping hand readily available may choose assisted living. These residential care facilities are staffed with trained caregivers who assist with daily living activities such as grooming and mobility. Facilities also offer a range of services for worry-free living, including meals and snacks served daily, transportation services and social and recreational activities. The Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey reports that seniors in Davie pay approximately $3,500 per month for assisted living, which is affordable compared to state and national averages and may make the city financially feasible for those with limited incomes.  

This guide breaks down the benefits and drawbacks of living in Davie, as well as the cost of local senior care services. It also highlights some of the programs and agencies available to help older adults obtain the care they need.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Davie

In Davie, as in the rest of Florida, assisted living facilities are licensed and monitored by the Agency for Health Care Administration. This agency enforces rules and regulations to ensure a high standard of care for residents and conducts background checks on prospective employees.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Davie

  • The affluent city of Davie has a higher cost of living than most other cities in Florida. Overall living costs are about 21% higher than the national median and 18% higher than the state average, which may be a consideration for some with budgetary considerations. Housing is particularly pricey, but seniors may avoid this expense by choosing assisted living.  
  • Davie is a relatively safe city, making it an attractive option for older adults considering southern Florida for their retirement years. On a 100-point crime index, the city’s violent crime frequency scores 18 versus the national average of 22.7, with violent crime more infrequent in Davie than in similarly sized cities in Florida. Property crime is a little more common but still occurs at a lower rate than in similarly sized communities.  
  • Winter and spring are the most pleasant seasons in Davie, with highs in the mid-70s to low 80s. Summers are very hot and humid, however, with highs reaching into the 90s. To help older adults stay cool in the summer months, many assisted living facilities have indoor recreational activities or pools.  
  • There are about 224 physicians per 100,000 people in Davie, which is slightly higher than the national rate of 210 and may lead to more accessible care. Health care costs are about 4% below the national average. While there are no hospitals within the city limits, several health care facilities are located within a 10-mile radius, including Memorial Hospital Pembroke in Pembroke Pines, Westside Regional Medical Center and Plantation General Hospital in Plantation.  
  • Florida doesn’t have a state income tax, which may make assisted living more affordable for older adults. The state also doesn’t impose an estate or inheritance tax, and sales and property taxes are near the national average.
