    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Winter Haven

    Winter Haven, situated between Tampa and Orlando in Polk County, offers seniors many relaxing and fun attractions like scenic lakes, the world's largest collection of vintage planes, and the world's largest Legoland. There are also 11 assisted living facilities within the city limits and another 45 in surrounding areas such as Lake Alfred, Haines City and Lake Wales. 

    The state licenses several types of assisted living facilities. All homes, including those with a standard license, provide meals and assistance with personal activities like bathing, dressing and mobility. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Winter Haven

    • The cost of living in Winter Haven is 9 percent below the national average, due mostly to the city's low housing costs. This statistic is reflected in the relatively low assisted-living prices. Health care costs, however, are more in line with state and national averages. 

    • Winter Haven is a reasonably safe city with 5.03 reports of violent crime per 1,000 residents per year. The state of Florida averages 4.3 such crimes, and the national average is 4. 

    • Expect more than average rainfall in Winter Haven with frequent thunderstorms punctuating the long, hot and humid summers. The average monthly high temperatures are at least 70 degrees throughout the year and 80s to low 90s during most months. Average lows in the winter are in the 50s. 

    • Winter Haven residents enjoy Florida's lack of state income tax, which includes retirement income, but there is a 7 percent sales tax on most purchases. 

    • Winter Haven 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. 

    • Winter Haven received A and B grades from the American Lung Association for particle pollutants and high-ozone days respectively. The air quality typically won't irritate respiratory conditions.
