    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Tallahassee

    Located in the Florida Panhandle, Tallahassee is the state capital and the main center for trade and agriculture in the Florida Big Bend region. There are 11 assisted living facilities in Tallahassee for seniors — just under 10 percent of the population. Assisted living facilities in Tallahassee, and all of Florida, hold at least a standard license which allows them to provide seniors with meals and assistance with daily tasks such as personal hygiene, dressing and taking medication. Some communities have special licenses and may offer additional health care services for seniors who require more supervision or aid. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Tallahassee

    • Tallahassee is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities meaning that its elected leadership "has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages," according to AARP. 

    • Tallahassee's summers are long with average high temperatures between 80 and 92 degrees during 7 months of the year. The average low temperature in the winter months drops to about 40 degrees, but daytime temps still reach the 60s and 70s frequently. Tallahassee's yearly rainfall totals are about 50 percent higher than the national average. 

    • With 9 incidents of violent crime per 1,000 residents per year, Tallahassee's crime rate is more than double the Florida and national averages. 

    • Seniors on a fixed income may appreciate Florida's lack of income tax. The state does not impose a tax on social security benefits or pensions so you could find extra breathing room in your budget. 

    • In addition to fewer taxes, Tallahassee residents enjoy a cost of living that's 5.5 percent lower than the national average and 6.5 percent lower than the rest of the state. 

    • Tallahassee's StarMetro public transportation system offers seniors age 60 or older reduced rates of up to 50 percent off regular bus fares. With 18 different weekday routes, seniors can easily travel the city for errands and activities.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Tallahassee

    Florida's Medicaid Long-term Care (MLTC) and Assistive Care Services programs can help qualified seniors pay for the cost of services at an assisted living facility. Neither program covers room and board fees, but the MLTC plan does negotiate those rates with providers. 

    Seniors receiving Federal SSI benefits can also take advantage of Florida's optional state supplementation to help with long-term care costs.
