Assisted Living in Lakewood Ranch, Florida

Lakewood Ranch is ranked among the top master-planned communities in Florida and has been recognized as the top multigenerational community in the United States for several consecutive years. The community is located in Sarasota County, where those aged 65 and over account for nearly four out of 10 residents, and it’s comprised of nearly two dozen home villages, each with shopping, dining and entertainment venues. Pristine lakes and 150 miles of trails provide room to explore, and the community’s lifestyle programs and interest-based social clubs promote a strong sense of belonging among residents.   

Despite its wide scope of age-friendly amenities, Lakewood Ranch is an affordable option for assisted living. The Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey shows that local care costs average $3,888 per month, which is well below the national median. This may offset the region’s relatively high cost of living and make it a viable option for those with budgetary considerations.
