    What to Consider About Assisted Living in North Port

    North Port, in Sarasota County, Florida, is located between Tampa and Fort Meyers and is the perfect destination for those who enjoy nature. The 8,000-acre Myakka State Forest, Warm Mineral Springs and more than 26 parks are within North Port's city limits. Seniors — over 23 percent of the population — can choose between two assisted living facilities in North Port city or from 11 others in nearby Englewood, Port Charlotte and Venice. 

    Florida licenses several types of assisted living communities, with oversight from the Bureau of Health Facility Regulation. Standard homes, like all facilities, provide meals and help with daily activities such as personal hygiene, mobility and bathroom assistance. They're ideal for seniors who want a residential setting and the minor support they need to remain independent. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in North Port

    • The American Lung Association grades Sarasota County, home of North Port, as an A for particle pollution and B for high-ozone days. Seniors with respiratory conditions should be comfortable with the city's air quality. 

    • Florida does not have a state income tax, which means no taxes on retirement income such as pensions, 401(k)s and SSI benefits. There is, however, a 7 percent sales tax on purchases. 

    • The cost of living in North Port is just a bit below the national average, but health care costs are 10 percent more expensive. 

    • North Port receives 45 percent more rainfall than the average U.S. city, often in the form of thunderstorms. Summers are hot and humid with highs in the low 90s, and winters are short and mild with lows in the 50s. 

    • Sarasota County is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning its elected leadership "has made the commitment to work toward actively making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages," according to AARP. 

    • North Port is a relatively safe city compared to both state and national averages. There are 1.38 violent crimes per 1,000 residents per year, which is less than half the Florida and U.S. averages.
