There are 63 assisted living facilities (ALF) in the Lake Worth area, with 14 directly within in Lake Worth and 49 in surrounding regions. The Bureau of Health Facility Regulation oversees facility licensing in four distinct categories of ALFs in the state: standard, which includes housing, meals and personal care; limited nursing services, which includes 24-hour nurse supervision; extended congregate care, which allows residents to age in place in a residential environment despite mental or physical limitations; and limited mental health care, which includes care for those suffering from mental disorders. ALFs in Florida are regulated by the Department of Elder Affairs, and there can be as many as several hundred residents in each facility.
