    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Santa Rosa Beach

    With a population of 12,400, Santa Rosa Beach is a charming seaside village in Walton County that has a spectacular location on Florida's Emerald Coast. Thanks to its award-winning beaches and mild weather, Santa Rosa Beach attracts both vacationers and retirees. Walton County is home to four assisted living facilities, and retirement communities may have a standard ALF license or one of three specialty endorsements offered by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration's Assisted Living Unit.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Santa Rosa Beach

    • Due to its desirable coastal location, Santa Rosa Beach has a higher-than-average cost of living. Locals spend up to 250 percent more on housing than homeowners and renters in the rest of the country. However, the community has a higher livability score than 99 percent of American cities based on the number of parks, schools, shops, attractions and amenities.
    • The area's higher cost of living is partially offset by Florida's lenient tax policies. There's no state income tax, so residents get to keep more of their Social Security benefits and retirement income, which can be put toward long-term care or assisted living costs.
    • Santa Rosa Beach has a moderate crime rate compared to similar cities in Florida. Thefts and property crimes are commonly reported, with these incidents outpacing the number of assaults and violent crimes 10-to-1. However, just five crimes were reported per square mile versus 65 for the average city in Florida.
    • The mild Gulf Coast climate is certainly part of this area's appeal, and residents enjoy 229 days of Florida sunshine. Santa Rosa Beach has a Sperling's Comfort Index of 75, which is 20 points higher than the average American town. Summertime highs are around 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and winter lows are seldom below freezing.
    • Santa Rosa Beach has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Council on Aging, an organization that funds an array of community resources for seniors as well as the Life Enrichment Senior Center and the John Horton Senior Center.
