    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Dunnellon

    Nestled just off of the Rainbow River, the city of Dunnellon boasts scenic waterway views and local antique shops. Seniors who would like to live in the area but require some assistance with activities of daily living in have access to 29 Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs), with two in Dunnellon and additional 27 close by. These facilities are governed by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) and support the elderly with personal care services, supervision, and the administration of medication. The Florida Department of Health (DOH) performs on-site inspections to ensure these regulations are being met.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Dunnellon

    • Dunnellon has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Annie W. Johnson Senior Services Center, an organization that offers assistance with utility payments, Christmas baskets, meals and a full calendar of activities as well as four other senior centers in the area.

    • Seniors in Marion County can enjoy the fresh air with little risk. The American Lung Association gave this county a B rating for its air quality. Seniors with a respiratory illness may have an easier time here than in other areas with lesser air quality.

    • Florida is tax-friendly to seniors and retirees as the state has no income tax. Social security checks, pension income IRA and 401(k) are untaxed, meaning seniors on a budget can save money.

    • The cost of living in Dunnellon is 9.7 percent lower than the rest of the country. This, in addition to Florida's tax benefits, make it a potentially smart choice for seniors with limited income.

    • Property crime in this area is 36.9 out of 100 (1 being safest) slightly lower than the national average of 38.1. Violent crime though is quite a bit higher at 42.6 compared to the U. S. average of 31.1.

    • Dunnellon's climate is a dream for seniors who hate the cold. January lows of 44 degrees and July highs of 91 degrees means seniors can stay active all year. The high heat and annual 53 inches of rain make it humid, which may be uncomfortable for some.
