What to Consider About Assisted Living in Edgewater

Located in Volusia County, Edgewater is situated on the Indian River.

The 35 assisted living facilities (ALFs) in and around Edgewater are licensed through the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). For an assisted living facility to qualify for licensing, seniors must be housed in a home-like community licensed with a standard or specialty care designation.

It scores 81 out of 100 on Sperling’s Comfort Index. The city is slightly wetter than the rest of the country with an average of 51 inches of rain per year.  
  • Air quality in Edgewater ranks well at 71 out of 100, higher than the national average of 58. This could be helpful to seniors with respiratory ailments.
