What to Consider About Assisted Living in Milton

Assisted living residences in Milton are regulated by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, which licenses and monitors providers throughout the state. The agency ensures facilities hire caregivers with adequate training and that they meet additional health and safety standards relating to food quality, medication handling and emergency procedures.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Milton

  • Milton experiences 29.2 inches more annual rainfall than the U.S. average and 9 more rainy days than are usual nationally. However, there are also 21 more sunny days, and temperatures during winter are 17.5 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the country's average, allowing seniors to spend more time outdoors, even during the colder seasons.
  • Milton has a low cost of living of 90.9 when expenses are measured on a 100-point index where the U.S. average is considered 100. As such, seniors may find their budgets can be stretched a little further while living in the city, providing opportunities to dine out or socialize more frequently.
  • The property crime rate in Milton, rated on a 100-point scale, is 38.9 — slightly higher than the national average of 35.4. However, the incidence of violent crimes is only 16.3 in the city vs. 22.7 nationwide, so Milton may be a good choice for seniors looking for a safe home.
  • Milton has a lower-than-average sales tax rate of 7%, compared to the norm of 7.3% across the country. Florida has no income tax, so seniors can also keep more of their Social Security income or pensions.
  • Health care is about 2% more expensive than average in Milton, and the city also has 42 fewer physicians per 100,000 residents than the national average of 210. However, Milton is close to several other cities, including Pensacola, which has a 19.5% higher physician density than average, enabling seniors to access prompt medical care.
  • Tri-County Community Council operates a door-to-door paratransit service that allows seniors in Milton to attend medical appointments or run errands. Depending on their financial situation, seniors typically pay a co-pay or full fare, but local agencies can also sponsor travel.
  • Milton's proximity to Pensacola allows seniors to access leading medical facilities such as HCA Florida West Hospital and Ascension Sacred Heart Pensacola, both of which have won awards for outstanding orthopedic surgical care. The Santa Rosa Medical Center in Milton also offers comprehensive services, limiting travel needs.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Assisted living's $4,323 average cost in Milton is relatively cheap compared to other types of care. Although home care costs nearly 10.3% more than assisted living, many seniors prefer it because they don't need to move out of their homes, allowing for greater independence. Home health care costs the same in Milton but is more oriented toward skilled nursing services. Adult day care, catering to seniors only needing daytime support, is $2,915 cheaper than assisted living. A semiprivate room in a nursing home, on the other hand, costs $4,437 more than assisted living.
