What to Consider About Assisted Living in Inverness

Inverness, Florida, has numerous parks such as the Waccasassa Bay Preserve State Park and the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, that residents of assisted living facilities (ALFs) may enjoy on short trips with family and friends. 

There are 18 ALFs in and around Inverness, with the majority of them receiving four-star reviews and above. In Florida, these communities are called residential care facilities and licensed through The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). In order to qualify for an assisted living designation, a community must house seniors in a non-restrictive, home-like environment. Facilities can be licensed with standard or specialty care licenses.
