What to Consider About Assisted Living in North Miami

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration licenses all assisted living facilities in North Miami and the rest of Florida. This agency ensures a high standard of care by enforcing minimum standards for staffing, care planning and nutrition and recreational services. It also follows up on complaints regarding substandard care or conditions. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in North Miami

 

  • Florida doesn’t have a state income tax, making the state an attractive option for those living on fixed incomes. North Miami residents don’t pay state taxes on retirement earnings and benefits, even if they’re relocating to this city from another state, which may help them afford local assisted living expenses.
  • While there are no hospitals in North Miami, North Shore Medical Center and Jackson North Medical Center are located within 3 miles of the city to promote access to care for seniors. Health care costs in this city are in line with national norms, and there are about 228 doctors per 100,000 people compared to the nationwide average of 210. This may make the city a favorable option for prospective assisted living residents managing ongoing health conditions.
  • On a 100-point index based on living costs nationwide, North Miami scores 111.7 versus the Florida score of 103.1. This indicates that local living expenses are roughly 12% higher than in a typical U.S. city and about nine percentage points higher than Florida as a whole. While this may be a concern for some seniors with fixed incomes, the state funds programs such as the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-term Care Program to help qualified seniors afford assisted living.
  • Crime is a little more prevalent in North Miami than in a typical U.S. city, but fortunately, rates have been steadily dropping over the past 20 years. On a 100-point crime index, the city scores 41.9 for violent criminal activity and 60.5 for property-related offenses, compared to the respective national norms of 22.7 and 35.4. Fortunately, many assisted living facilities provide escorted transportation and have security measures, such as alarm systems and gated entrances, to keep residents safe.
  • Daytime temperatures in North Miami range from 75 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter to 90 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer, and the city gets about 61 inches of annual rainfall. While this may be uncomfortable for seniors sensitive to heat, assisted living facilities promote an active lifestyle year-round through indoor amenities and activities.
