What to Consider About Assisted Living in Miramar
Located near the southeast coast of Florida, between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Miramar is home to five assisted living facilities, with an additional 51 in nearby areas such as Pembroke Pines, Miami Gardens and Miami Lakes. Florida's Bureau of Health Facility Regulation licenses several types of assisted living facilities throughout the state including standard homes, limited nursing services (LNS) facilities and extended congregate care (ECC) communities. Standard homes are ideally suited for seniors who are relatively independent but still require some help with daily activities such as getting dressed, bathing and moving around. LNS and ECC facilities provide more intensive assistance and further health-related services.
