    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lakewood Ranch

    Lakewood Ranch is a multi-generational, master planned community in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. It's home to around 33,000 residents who enjoy access to golf courses, shopping, clubs and activities. The community is dedicated to quality of life at every stage of life and there are 54 assisted living facilities in Lakewood Ranch and nearby communities catering to seniors interested in retiring to the area. These facilities may have a Standard or Specialty license depending on the type of care provided and are licensed and monitored by Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lakewood Ranch

    • The Lakewood Ranch area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lakewood Ranch Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Lakewood Ranch has many opportunities for the community to celebrate arts and culture. Seniors may enjoy strolling through the Village of the Arts and some assisted living facilities may organize group trips to take in a show at the Manatee Performing Arts Center.
    • Sarasota County, including Lakewood Ranch, 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 or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
    • Sarasota County Area Transit (SCAT) provides public transportation in Lakewood Ranch and riders aged 65 and older are eligible for a discounted fare. Manatee County Area Transit also has a service that runs in parts of Lakewood Ranch, with discounted fares available to people aged 60 and over. Both organizations have paratransit services that seniors may be able to access.
    • Lakewood Ranch is part of the North Port-Sarasota metropolitan area, which the State of the Air 2018 report named equal cleanest in the country for 24-hour particle pollution. Both Sarasota and Manatee Counties received B grades for ozone pollution. This good air quality can bring health benefits for seniors with respiratory conditions.
    • There is no state income tax in Florida, which keeps tax bills low for seniors in Lakewood Ranch. In addition, sales taxes are close to national averages, helping seniors on a fixed budget put more money towards assisted living.
