    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pensacola

    Pensacola, the westernmost seat of the Florida Panhandle, is sure to please aviation fans as the home of the National Naval Aviation Museum, the Blue Angels Naval aerobatics team and naval pilot training facilities. Seniors will also find beautiful beaches, art museums, and cultural centers since Pensacola means "The City of Five Flags" — a reference to the five countries that once ruled this city, the last being, of course, the United States. 

    Pensacola is home to 16 assisted living facilities, with nine others in neighboring towns such as Gulf Breeze and Milton. Florida's Bureau of Health Facility Regulation licenses several types of assisted living facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pensacola

    • Pensacola isn't quite as hot as many other Florida cities, but it's still hot. Summer highs are in the 80s and 90s, and winters are mild with lows in the 40s and 50s. Humidity is high, and so are the rainfall totals. Pensacola receives 60 percent more rain than the average U.S. city. 

    • Although the state does charge a 7.5 percent sales tax, Florida doesn't impose an income tax on residents, which means no taxes on social security or pensions. 

    • Pensacola is located in Escambia County, which scored an A and C on the American Lung Association's particle pollutant and high-ozone day report card. Too much ozone in the air can irritate respiratory symptoms. 

    • Pensacola seniors enjoy reduced rates on ECAT's bus fares, and ECAT offers door-to-door services for ADA-certified adults. 

    • Pensacola is less safe than many other Florida cities with 6.77 violent crimes per 1,000 residents, per year. The state average is 4.3, and nationally, it's 4. Property crime is also considerably higher in the city. 

    • Fueled by well-below-average housing prices, Pensacola's cost of living is 13 percent lower than the U.S. average, and that's reflected in the city's below-average assisted living costs. 


    Paying for Assisted Living in Pensacola

    Average Monthly Costs

    Cities in Florida

    $4,000.00 US
    $3,777.00 Gulf Breeze
    $3,761.00 Fort Walton Beach
    $3,550.00 Milton
    $3,247.00 Foley
    $3,080.00 Pensacola

    Assisted Living costs in Pensacola start around $3,080 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of assisted living is $4,000 per month, according to the latest figures from Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Pensacola and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Pensacola

    Seniors who need help with long-term care costs can turn to Florida's Assistive Care Services and Medicaid Long-Term Care plans. The programs cover the cost of services at assisted living facilities, but they don't cover room and board. The MLTC plan does, however, negotiate rates on behalf of participants. 

    Florida also provides optional state supplementation for seniors who receive Federal SSI benefits. The state allows family supplementation without affecting Medicaid eligibility or benefits provided the payments are made to the provider and not the resident. 

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Florida page.
