    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lecanto

    Lecanto, Florida, is a city located 80 miles north of Tampa with a senior population of approximately 26 percent. There are many outdoor parks in Lecanto, including Lecanto Community Park, an outdoor recreation site offering seniors 20 acres of jogging trails, wildlife and shaded grounds. Seniors seeking assisted living facilities (ALF) in the Lecanto area can pick from 19 different facilities, with six directly within the city limits and an additional 13 nearby. Assisted living facilities in Lecanto, as well as in the rest of Florida, are defined by the Department of Elder Affairs as establishments that offer residential services in a home-like environment to adults who cannot live independently. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration licenses the four separate categories of ALFs in Florida, including mental health care facilities.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lecanto

    • In Lecanto and across the state of Florida, Social Security and pension income are exempt from taxation.  This is a huge draw to seniors who are looking to spend more on assisted living costs and less on taxes.

    • The Lecanto area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Inverness, Florida.

    • Lecanto has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Citrus County Resource Center/Central Citrus Community Center, an organization that offers fun and companionship to seniors in the area through computer classes, games and various exercise programs.

    • Though Lecanto experiences 13 more inches of rain each year than the national average annual rainfall, the city does not get any snow. With temperatures hardly dropping below 45 degrees, the warm weather in Lecanto is ideal for seniors seeking to escape harsh winters and enjoy a more temperate climate. 

    • The overall crime rate in the city of Lecanto is approximately 7 percent higher than the national average crime rate. This means that those who choose to live in this area have a one in 33 chance of being a victim of a crime. 

    • Public transportation in Lecanto is provided by the Citrus County Transit system. Seniors who are above the age of 60 qualify for free transportation when using the Orange Line (fixed bus routes).
