Assisted Living in Longwood, FL

Located in the heart of Florida, Longwood is a vibrant city that provides easy access to cultural attractions, year-round events and scenic parks. It has a little more than 15,000 residents, nearly one in five of whom are retirement-aged. While its overall cost of living is a little high, Florida’s lack of state income tax, as well as access to income-based programs such as Medicaid, may help seniors afford long-term care.

Seniors in Longwood who are unable to safely live alone but don’t require intensive medical services may be good candidates for assisted living. These residential facilities promote seniors’ independence and quality of life through convenient services such as daily meals, housekeeping and linen service and transportation. They also provide recreational activities to help residents build social connections and explore new interests. According to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, seniors in Longwood pay $4,000 per month for assisted living, making this a relatively affordable city to obtain care. 

This introductory guide for assisted living in Longwood provides more information on local care costs and how they compare to assisted living rates in other Florida cities. It also lists some of the rules residential facilities follow and highlights options for paying for long-term care.
