What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pinellas Park

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration oversees assisted living facilities in Pinellas Park to ensure a consistently high standard of care across all facilities. It has a set of rules related to housing, care planning, nutrition services and recreation, which it enforces through a rigorous licensing process and regular inspections.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pinellas Park

 

  • Because Florida doesn’t have a state income tax, seniors may be able to put more of their retirement income toward assisted living expenses. Even seniors who’ve contributed to retirement accounts through income in other states don’t have to pay taxes on withdrawals after they’ve moved to Florida, which may make assisted living in Pinellas Park financially viable.
  • Pinellas Park’s air quality is exceptional and may promote the health and comfort of its senior population. The American Lung Association gives Pinellas Park, where the city is located, the highest marks available across all three metrics it measures, including ozone, 24-hour particle and annual particle pollution. Additionally, many assisted living facilities have air purification systems to reduce the spread of viruses indoors.
  • Pinellas Park residents aged 60 and over can obtain transportation services through Neighborly Transportation, which is available through a local nonprofit organization called Neighborly Senior Care Network. This service can supplement what older adults access through assisted living and help them attend errands and medical appointments in Pinellas County. 
  • Crime, especially property-related offenses, is more prevalent in Pinellas Park than in most U.S. cities. On a 100-point index, the city rates 28.5 for violent crime versus 22.7 nationally, and it scores 73.4 for property crime compared to the national norm of 35.4. While this may be a consideration for those who live alone, assisted living facilities provide safe environments with features such as high-security locks and alarm systems.
  • Pinellas Park is a generally affordable place to live, making it a financially feasible option for many seniors living on fixed incomes. On a 100-point cost of living index based on living costs nationwide, the city rates 94.3 versus Florida’s score of 103.1. This may promote competitive assisted living rates in the city.
  • Pinellas Park has warm weather throughout the year, which may appeal to seniors who are sensitive to cold temperatures. Daytime temperatures range from 70 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter to 91 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. To keep residents comfortable, many assisted living facilities feature individual climate controls in residents’ rooms.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Pinellas Park

Seniors receiving Federal SSI benefits can apply for Florida's optional state supplementation to assist with long-term care costs. The state also has two programs, Medicaid Long-Term Care and Assistive Care Services, that can help low-income seniors with the cost of services at assisted living facilities. The plans don't cover room and board, but Florida does allow families to supplement those fees without impacting a senior's Medicaid eligibility or benefits. 

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