What to Consider About Assisted Living in Royal Palm Beach

The Bureau of Health Facility Regulation is responsible for monitoring and regulating assisted living communities in Royal Palm Beach and the rest of Florida.

Seniors and their loved ones can use the agency's website to confirm a facility's license status and report subpar care services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Royal Palm Beach

  • Royal Palm Beach is relatively expensive. The city's overall cost of living is 18.1% higher than the national average and 15% more than Florida's statewide norm. Housing and transportation are particularly expensive, but assisted living communities usually offer fixed monthly rates that include room and board to help seniors manage their budgets. Additionally, local health care is about 3.7% cheaper than the U.S. average, which may further help retirees balance their budgets.
  • Royal Palm Beach is considered tax-friendly for seniors because the state has no income tax, and groceries and medicine aren't subject to sales taxes. This may help seniors manage their finances despite Royal Palm Beach's high cost of living.

However, seniors may appreciate the region's warm, snow-free winters, and assisted living communities are required to have evacuation plans in case of bad weather.
