What to Consider About Assisted Living in Miami Beach

Assisted living facilities in Miami Beach, as well as the rest of the state, comply with licensing regulations set by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. This department monitors and regulates residential care facilities throughout the state and publishes lists of licensed and unlicensed assisted living facilities, as well as details on the services these facilities provide.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Miami Beach

  • The AARP lists Miami Beach on its Age-Friendly Network, indicating the city has a range of benefits for older adults. Miami Beach is ranked among the top half of communities in the nation with a score of 55, which reflects its transportation amenities and access to health care facilities, grocery stores and farmers’ markets.  
  • Due to Florida’s lack of state income taxes, seniors in Miami Beach retain a larger portion of their retirement income. This may help them afford assisted living in this region.
  • The air quality in Miami-Dade County, where Miami Beach is located, is decent, supporting the health and comfort of seniors managing chronic cardiovascular and respiratory conditions. The American Lung Association gives the region a passing score of annual particle pollution levels and B grades from 24-hour particle and ozone pollution, which is high compared to ratings in other metropolitan areas in the nation.
  • One hospital, Mount Sinai Medical Center, is located in Miami Beach, promoting easy access to primary and specialty medical services to local seniors. This hospital is ranked among the best in the nation for cardiovascular care, cancer care and orthopedics, and it’s the only Ivy League-affiliated medical facility in South Florida. Local health care costs are consistent with national norms, which may make assisted living in this city financially feasible for those with budgetary considerations.
  • The weather in Miami Beach is typically very warm, with average daytime temperatures ranging from 75 degrees in the winter to 89 degrees in the summer. The city gets about 59 inches of rainfall and no snow, and humidity levels in the summer are typically very high. Assisted living facilities generally have indoor amenities and activities available year-round, and many have individual climate controls in residents’ rooms to promote their comfort.
  • Crime is more commonplace in Miami Beach than in other U.S. cities, which may make assisted living an attractive alternative to living alone. The city rates 50.2 for violent crime and 95.7 for property-related offenses, compared to national respective norms of 22.7 and 35.4. Fortunately, crime rates have been dropping over the past two decades.
