What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fleming Island

Assisted living facilities in Fleming Island comply with minimum guidelines set by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. This department outlines the scope of services facilities must provide and sets rules related to staffing, building features and nutrition and medication services. It also operates the Complaint Administration Unit, which fields and investigates reports of substandard care and conditions.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fleming Island

 

  • Florida is one of the few states that doesn’t impose state income taxes, offering significant potential annual savings for those moving to Fleming Island from outside the state. Seniors don’t pay state income taxes on any form of retirement income, even on withdrawals from accounts they contributed to from income made in other states. This may help some seniors afford assisted living costs in Fleming Island. 
  • Clay Community Transportation provides transportation services in and around Fleming Island, supplementing the transportation services seniors receive through their assisted living facilities. It operates Flex Route service, which picks passengers up as far as three-quarters of a mile off the route. Medicare card holders are eligible to ride this service for a reduced fare.
  • Fleming Island’s weather is typically warm throughout the year, making it an attractive option for seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors. Summer is the hottest season with high temperatures in the 90s, but daytime temperatures are milder throughout the rest of the year, ranging from the mid-60s to mid-80s. To help residents stay comfortable, many assisted living facilities have features such as swimming pools and individual climate controls in residents’ rooms.
  • On a 100-point crime index, Fleming Island scores 19.4 for violent crime and 35.6 for property crime, which is comparable to the national respective scores of 22.7 and 35.4. Both types of crime have been declining for the past two decades, but assisted living may be a practical alternative to living alone for those with safety concerns.
  • The cost of living in Fleming Island is about 7% higher than the national norm and four points higher than the Florida average, which may be a consideration for those with restrictive budgets. However, the region’s increased cost of living is primarily due to high housing costs, which seniors can avoid by choosing assisted living over owning a home.
  • There are no hospitals in Fleming Island, but about 20 major medical facilities are within driving distance, including Orange Park Hospital and Baptist Medical Center South. Additionally, many assisted living facilities promote access to care through on-call physician services.
