    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fort Myers

    The commercial center of Lee County, Fort Meyers has grown rapidly in recent years and now has a population of almost 80,000 — over 18 percent are seniors age 65 and over. Fort Myers is home to 23 assisted living facilities with another 15 communities in surrounding areas such as Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres. There are three types of assisted living communities in the state, and they are licensed based on the standard of care they provide. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fort Myers

    • The American Lung Association grades Lee County, home of Fort Myers, as a B for ozone and an A for particle pollutants. These are good scores because ozone and particle pollutants in the air can make respiratory conditions worse.

    • The cost of living in Fort Myers is right on par with the national average, but areas like Fort Myers Beach are more expensive due to the higher cost of housing. 

    • With 12.35 violent crimes per 1,000 residents per year, Fort Myers' crime rate is more than triple the national average. The average crime rate in Florida is 4.3. 

    • Florida collects a 6 percent sales tax on most purchases but doesn't have a state income tax, which includes pensions, 401(k) and social security income. 

    • Summers in Fort Myers are long and hot. Average highs are in the 80s and 90s for most of the year, and the winters are short and mild with average lows in the 50s. With high humidity, summer seasons include frequent thunderstorms.

    • Fort Myers has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Lee County Friendship Centers, an organization that provides services for seniors that include wellness clinics, nutrition programs and dining sites.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Fort Myers

    Seniors who need financial assistance with the cost of services at assisted living facilities may qualify for the state's Medicaid Long-Term Care or Assistive Care Services programs. The plans don't cover room-and-board fees, but the MLTC program does negotiate those fees on behalf of participants. 

    The state does allow family supplementation, which means family members can contribute to long-term care costs without affecting Medicaid eligibility or benefits. Florida's optional state supplementation (OSS) payment for SSI recipients can also help.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Florida page.
