Assisted Living in Tavares, FL

Tavares is a resort city located about midway between Orlando and The Villages in Lake County. The city is nestled on a thin strip of land between three scenic lakes: Dora, Eustis and Harris. With its natural beauty, year-round warm weather and countless attractions, the region attracts seniors from across the nation. Despite Tavares’ desirable location, residents enjoy a cost of living that’s nearly 5% lower than the national average. There are many health care facilities to serve the city’s seniors, including the AdventHealth Waterman Hospital.

The charming resort city is home to just over 19,000 people, and with Florida’s reputation as a retiree’s paradise, it’s no wonder that 33% of its residents are aged 65 and older. To accommodate the needs of retirees as they age, the city and its surroundings boasts nearly two dozen assisted living facilities. Costs in these facilities are higher than the Florida median at $4,950 per month, on average.
