What to Consider About Assisted Living in DeLand

In addition to regulating the licensure of the Sunshine State’s assisted living facilities, the Agency for Health Care Administration also oversees the state’s Medicaid program and in-state health care data sharing via the Florida Center for Health Information and Policy Analysis. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in DeLand

  • Florida is one of seven states without a state income tax, giving seniors who choose to retire in DeLand more financial freedom. Residents pay a combined state and local sales tax of 6.5% on all goods and services bought in DeLand, which is slightly lower than the average Florida sales tax rate of 7.05%
  • Many people wish to live in Florida thanks to benefits such as favorable year-round temperatures and easy beachfront access. This demand typically inflates the Sunshine State’s cost of living. Still, DeLand’s overall cost of living is 6.5% lower than the national average and 9.3% lower than Florida’s statewide average. 
  • Seniors who choose to settle down in DeLand should have no issues staying busy after retirement. The small city is home to the Museum of Art – DeLand, Stetson University, the African American Museum of Art and the DeLand House Museum
  • DeLand is home to a handful of hospitals, including AdventHealth DeLand, AdventHealth DeLand Victoria Medical Park and Old DeLand Memorial Hospital. It also offers nearby access to some of the state’s top hospitals, thanks to its close proximity to Orlando, including the third-ranked AdventHealth Orlando, which is nationally ranked in three specialties, and the state’s eighth-best facility, Orlando Health-Orlando Regional Medical Center.
  • Ranked on a scale of 1 to 100 — 1 being the lowest, 100 being the highest — DeLand’s violent crime rating of 23.7 is roughly in line with the U.S. average of 22.7. However, DeLand’s property crime rate is substantially higher, coming in at 61.9 compared to the U.S. average of 35.4. Seniors who live in assisted living facilities benefit from top-of-the-line security measures such as keycard-only entries and 24/7 closed-circuit television monitoring, keeping them safe from all types of crime
