What to Consider About Assisted Living in Eustis

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration sets health and safety standards for assisted living communities in the state's cities, including Eustis. The agency licenses providers and performs regular inspections to ensure they follow the relevant regulations. Seniors researching care quality may check the reports from these inspections on the agency's website.

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Eustis

  • Eustis has a slightly lower-than-usual cost of living, measuring 97 on a 100-point index, whereas the U.S. average is 100. Clothing, restaurant meals and other discretionary items are particularly inexpensive in the city, which may benefit seniors in assisted living, as this type of care already provides for most other needs.
  • Eustis' climate is warm and humid throughout the year. While average temperatures can get 5.8 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the national norm in summer, they also remain 23.9 degrees Fahrenheit warmer in winter, improving comfort for seniors sensitive to the cold. Eustis experiences 30 more sunny days annually than average, providing ample opportunities for retirees to enjoy the outdoors.
  • A robust public transportation system makes it possible for seniors to visit local attractions throughout Lake County and nearby regions. Seniors with disabilities or a low income can utilize the Lake County Connection paratransit service, which provides low-cost door-to-door ride-share transportation.
  • Sales taxes are 0.3% lower than the national average in Eustis, reducing expenses. Furthermore, the income tax rate is 0%, enhancing seniors' spending power by allowing them to keep more of their retirement income.
  • Eustis has a high rate of property crimes, measuring 49.1 on a 100-point scale vs. 35.4 nationwide. However, the violent crime rate is 17.6 — 5.1 points lower than the U.S. average. In any case, seniors can typically feel safe in assisted living due to excellent security and constant staff presence.
  • Health care quality is 3.7% below average in Eustis. The city only has 160 physicians per 100,000 people, compared to the national norm of 210, but there is an abundance of pharmacies, specialists and hospitals within driving distance. Many of these health care providers, such as Adventhealth Waterman, are highly regarded for heart and pulmonary care — common concerns for seniors.
