    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lake Wales

    Lake Wales is located on the highest ground of peninsular Florida and is known for its citrus and crystal clear lakes. It has a sizable senior population, with over 22 percent of the city's 16,000 residents aged 65 and over.

    Seniors who are mostly independent but need help with some daily activities can find accommodation in one of the area's 17 assisted living facilities. In Lake Wales these facilities are monitored by Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lake Wales

    • Seniors with respiratory conditions may appreciate the good air quality in Lake Wales. Polk County received high grades for three categories measured in the State of the Air 2018 report, with an A for 24-hour particle pollution and a B for ozone pollution.
    • Public Transport in Lakes Wales is provided by Citrus Connection. Seniors aged 65 and over are eligible for discounted fares. They may also be able to utilize the door-to-door paratransit service which is for people unable to ride the regular service.
    • The Lake Wales area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lake Wales Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Lake Wales has warm weather year round with lows in January of 49 degrees. In July the high temperature is around 92 degrees and the city gets 240 sunny days each year, 35 more than the national average. This may be appealing to seniors who enjoy spending time in the sunshine.
    • The cost of living in Lake Wales is 89 in the Sperling index, 11 points lower than the national average. Seniors with health conditions can save money on healthcare, which is ranked 6 points below the U.S. average of 100. Other everyday items, including utilities and groceries, cost more than the national average and this may impact the budget of seniors with a fixed income.
    • Lake Wales has a high overall crime rate of 31 crimes per 1,000 residents, which is higher than 71 percent of Florida's other towns and cities. Although the violent crime rate is lower than the state average, the property crime rate is 28.13, three points higher than the Florida average of 25.12. This may be concerning for safety-conscious seniors.
