What to Consider About Assisted Living in Homosassa

The Agency for HealthCare Administration, Bureau of Health Facility Regulation, monitors and licenses assisted living communities in Homosassa and the rest of Florida. The agency implements staffing requirements, health and safety regulations and emergency preparedness rules to ensure seniors receive proper care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Homosassa

  • Health care in Homosassa is about 6% cheaper than the national average. Seniors can access several local medical centers, and while there isn't a hospital directly in town, Bravera Health Seven Rivers is roughly 30 minutes away in the nearby city of Crystal River. 
  • The overall cost of living in Homosassa is 9.7% lower than the national norm. However, some expenses are costlier than average, including groceries and utilities. Many assisted living communities offer fixed monthly rates, which can help seniors manage any budgetary concerns.
  • Florida is a tax-friendly retirement destination. The state doesn't have any personal income tax, meaning disbursements from retirement accounts such as IRAs, 401(k)s and pensions are tax-free. Additionally, the state doesn't tax Social Security income, nor does it impose estate or inheritance taxes.
  • Summer weather in Homosassa can be uncomfortable. Humidity is extremely high, and temperatures often surpass 90 degrees Fahrenheit in July. However, other seasons are generally pleasant, and seniors may appreciate the region's warm winters. Average temperatures stay between 45 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit from November through March. Additionally, the region offers 248 sunny days annually, much more than the national average of 205.
  • Homosassa has notably high-quality air and water, so local seniors are less exposed to pollutants. On a 100-point scale, local air quality rates 75 compared to 58 nationally, while water quality rates 81 versus the national norm of 55.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Seniors who need ongoing medical support can also receive care at home, with home health care costing more than assisted living, at $4,559.
