What to Consider About Assisted Living in Tampa

Because of its location and climate, Tampa is a popular destination for all ages, including seniors — almost 12 percent of the population. The city is infused with Cuban and Spanish cultures as it was once known as a melting pot where people of different cultures came together. Seniors may enjoy the Tampa Riverwalk, TECO Manatee Viewing CenterHillsborough River State Park, Lettuce Lake Park and Tampa Museum of Art.

Most of the city’s 97 assisted living homes allow elders to continue an independent lifestyle while receiving the support they need, but some are licensed to provide more specialized nursing care. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Tampa

  • The cost of living in Tampa is about 6 percent lower than the national average. The main contributors to the lower costs are housing and health care which is reflected in the city’s below-average assisted living costs.

  • Hillsborough County’s Sunshine Line program provides low-income seniors with door-to-door transportation or bus passes for errands such as doctor’s appointments and grocery trips.

  • The crime rate in Tampa is higher than the rest of the state and the national average. There are 5.09 violent crimes per 1,000 residents per year compared to 4.3 in the state and 4 nationally.

  • Florida is hot and humid. There are seven months that have average high temperatures between 80 and 90 degrees. January is the coolest month, but temperatures rarely drop below 40 and average highs are still in the 70s. 
  • With lots of area senior centers, miles of beaches and scores of tourist attractions and museums, there is no shortage of activities around the Tampa Bay area that residents can visit on day trips with family and friends.

  • The Tampa area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Tampa General and the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
