    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lake Alfred

    The city of Lake Alfred in central Florida is a thriving business hub due to its proximity to the Orlando and Tampa International Airports. Although the city continues to grow, it still retains its friendly, neighborhood charm, making it an attractive place for seniors to live. Prospective senior residents can choose from among the 31 assisted living facilities in the area, two of which are located within city limits. These ALFs, and all others located within the state, are regulated by Florida’s Bureau of Health Facility Regulation.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lake Alfred

    • Polk Transit Services provides public transportation to residents of Polk County, including those living in Lake Alfred. Passengers aged 65 years and older qualify for discounted fares. Buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts and kneelers for easy boarding.
    • The state of Florida has a no-income-tax policy. Additionally, it does not deduct taxes on Social Security retirement or pension benefits, which allows seniors living in Lake Alfred to enjoy significant savings.
    • The Lakeland-Winter Haven area, which includes Lake Alfred, is tied in first place for having the cleanest metropolitan area in the country for 24-hour particle pollution. This translates to healthier air quality for seniors who are dealing with chronic respiratory conditions.
    • Lake Alfred's climate is conducive for many outdoor leisure activities and the city has mostly sunny days throughout the year. Its comfort index is listed at 76, which is considerably higher than the national average of 54. Average summer temperatures reach the low 90s, which can cause discomfort to seniors who struggle with the heat. Winter months are relatively comfortable, with an average low temperature of 49 degrees, compared to the national average of 23 degrees.
    • Lake Alfred’s relatively low crime rate makes it one of the safer places in the state for seniors. The property crime index is listed at 35.8, which is lower than Florida’s 45.1 and the national index of 38.1. The violent crime index also shows a lower value at 25.4, which is markedly better than the state’s index of 35.9 and the national index of 31.1.
    • Compared to Florida’s overall cost of living index of 111, Lake Alfred registers a more favorable reading of 92. The healthcare index at 94 is lower than the national index of 100, allowing for slightly more affordable healthcare costs for seniors living in the area.
