What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lakeland

Lakeland, Florida, located between Tampa and Orlando, will excite history, art and nature enthusiasts with features like the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, the Polk Museum of Art, Hollis Garden and the Historic and Antiques district. Seniors who want to reside in this area while receiving some help with daily tasks can choose from 16 assisted living facilities in Lakeland and an additional 35 in neighboring areas such as Plant City, Winter Haven and Lake Alfred. The Florida Bureau of Health Facility Regulation licenses three types of assisted living facilities in the state. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lakeland

  • Florida is one of only seven states that doesn't charge a state income tax. Retirement income such as 401(k), pensions and social security benefits are not taxed, so seniors coming from out of state may find more budget flexibility. 
  • Lakeland is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership "has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city our county a great place for people of all ages," according to AARP. 
  • Lakeland's violent crime rate is about 25 percent lower than the Florida average, with 3.26 incidents of violent crime per 1,000 residents per year. Property crimes in the city are nearly double the national average, but those wouldn't typically affect assisted living residents.
  • The American Lung Association gives Lakeland an A grade for particle pollutants and a B grade for high-ozone days. Pollutants and ozone can exacerbate the symptoms of respiratory conditions. 
  • Lakeland has long, hot summers with temps often over 90 degrees and high humidity. The cooler months are short-lived, with average low temperatures in the 50s from November through February. Thunderstorms are frequent, and the area receives about 30 percent more rainfall than the national average.
  • The cost of living in Lakeland is 9 percent lower than the national average, which means seniors on a tight budget may find some relief. Low housing costs are the main reason, and that's reflected in the city's below-average assisted living prices.

It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Lakeland and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Lakeland

Florida offers low-income seniors two programs that can help cover services at assisted living facilities. The Medicaid Long-Term Care (MLTC) and Assistive Care Services plans don't cover room and board, but the MLTC plan does negotiate those fees for participants. 

Family supplementation is permitted under certain circumstances, and the state provides an optional state supplement to seniors who receive Federal SSI benefits. 

Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Florida page.

More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

While many families use their own funds or personal assets to pay for assisted living, there are plenty of additional options to cover these costs. Some additional ways to finance assisted living costs include:

  • Veterans Benefits
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Long-Term Care Insurance
  • Reverse Mortgage
