What to Consider About Assisted Living in Punta Gorda

When Punta Gorda was founded on the shores of Peace River in 1884, every waterfront block was a park. Haborwalk continues this legacy with a walk along the Charlotte Harbor shoreline, which may appeal to seniors who enjoy waterfront strolls. Over 55 percent of the city's 19,000 residents are aged 65 and older and there are 17 assisted living facilities in the area offering them accommodation. These facilities are licensed by Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Punta Gorda

  • The Punta Gorda area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Bayfront Health, Punta Gorda, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • The overall cost of living in Punta Gorda is rated at 103 on the Sperling index, compared to the national average of 100. This is largely due to the cost of housing. While groceries are pricey, seniors can save money on utilities, transport and healthcare which are all less expensive than the U.S. average.
