What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wellington
Wellington is situated in southern Florida and is nestled just off the coast of West Palm Beach. This city was named one Money Magazine's Best Places to Live because of its low crime rates and luxurious atmosphere, both of which could be appealing to seniors seeking to settle in an affluent area. Assisted living facilities (ALFs) in Wellington are regulated by the Department of Elder Affairs. Seniors in this community have 60 ALFs in the Wellington area to choose from, with seven directly within the city limits and 53 in the surrounding regions. The Bureau of Health Facility Regulation oversees licensing the four types of ALFs in Wellington.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wellington
- During any month of the year, Wellington weather can reach temperatures in the mid-80s. Half of the summer days reach the 90s and with no snow in the winters, this climate is exceptionally warm and predictable. Seniors looking to escape cold weather could consider Wellington for assisted living.
- Wellington is an exceptionally safe area in Florida, with a violent crime rating of 18.3 as opposed to the national average of 31.1. Because violent crime rates in Wellington are much lower than the mean rate across the country, seniors could feel safer when traveling alone in this area.
- The West Palm Beach area, where Wellington is located, has multiple activities for seniors to enjoy, such as free movie nights, musical performances at the Wellington Amphitheater and two regional malls for shopping.
- The Wellington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Wellington Regional Medical Center and Palms West Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- The air quality in Wellington is much better than the national average with a ranking of 73 in contrast with the national average score of 58. Air quality is determined by whether or not there are harmful air pollutants in the atmosphere, and Wellington's better air quality means seniors can spend more time out of out-of-doors with less damage to their respiratory systems.
- Living in Florida also means a tax cut for seniors. Florida excludes Social Security income and pension income from taxation, meaning more money can be spent on assisted living costs.
