What to Consider About Assisted Living in Tarpon Springs

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration oversees assisted living facilities in Tarpon Springs and all of Florida. Through this department, individuals can find information on the regulations assisted living facilities follow and learn about the process for filing complaints in incidents of noncompliance or subpar care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Tarpon Springs

  • The overall cost of living in Tarpon Springs is about 1% above state norms and 4% over the U.S. average. In particular, housing costs, groceries and utilities run a little high here, but opting for assisted living may help seniors’ retirement income stretch further.
  • Florida doesn’t have an estate or inheritance tax, and sales and property taxes are in line with national norms. Additionally, there’s no state income tax, which may enable seniors to afford assisted living expenses in Tarpon Springs.
  • Local crime rates are comparable to national norms, but opting for assisted living may be a preferred alternative to living alone for vulnerable individuals with safety concerns. On a 100-point crime index, Tarpon Springs rates 27.8 for violent crimes and 39 for property-related offenses, compared to national scores of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively.
  • Tarpon Springs has warm weather throughout the year, with 6 months having comfortable daytime temperatures in the 70-85 range. Summers are hotter and more humid with daytime temperatures in the 90s, but the weather is comfortable throughout the other seasons. The city gets about 51 inches of annual rainfall but no snow, making it an attractive option for those who are sensitive to cold weather.
  • There are 273 doctors per 100,000 people in the Tarpon Springs region, which is 30% higher than the national norm.  Residents can receive medical care at AdventHealth North Pinellas, a not-for-profit facility with a range of specializations, including a senior care department.
  • Seniors in Tarpon Springs can obtain transportation services through several local organizations, including Neighborly Senior Care Network and Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority. These organizations can help older adults attend medical appointments and errands, supplementing the transportation services available in assisted living facilities.
  • The air quality is very good in the Tarpon Springs region, supporting the health and comfort of older adults and those with certain health conditions. The American Lung Association gives the region top marks across its three metrics, including ozone, 24-hour particle and annual particle pollution.
