With seven golf courses, a fitness center and multiple clubs specifically designed with seniors in mind, Sun City Center is an ideal place for assisted living. Assisted living facilities (ALFs) in Sun City Center are defined by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs as establishments that provide housing, meals and personal care to adults. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration licenses the four different types of ALFs in Florida. Seniors who choose to live in Sun City Center have 58 ALFs in the area to pick from, with four directly within the city limits and 54 in neighboring communities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sun City Center

    • Many seniors choose to live or retire in Florida because the state does not have personal or state income tax. Because Social Security is also exempt from taxation, seniors who live in Sun City Center can spend more money on leisure or other costs.

    • Sun City Center is serviced by two Hillsborough Area Regional Transit mass transportation bus lines, Line 87 and Line 35LX. Seniors are eligible to receive discounted fares with a Senior Permit card. Additionally, golf carts are legal to drive in Sun City Center and can be operated on all public streets.

    • The Sun City Center area is home to world-class medical facilities, including South Bay Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Temperatures in Sun City Center typically range between 50 and 90 degrees. Because the area never gets cold enough, Sun City Center averages zero inches of snow and offers seniors mild winters and plenty of sunshine.

    • Sun City Center is considered safer than 94 percent of all other cities across the state of Florida. Thus, a senior's chance of being a victim of a violent crime in the area is one in 2,583 compared to the state's violent crime rate of one in 232.
