Palmetto, Florida

Assisted Living

Assisted living communities provide apartment style housing and social events as well as individual support. The services offered often include aid with ADLs. Occupants may be kept under monitoring and evaluation. Under certain circumstances, communities may provide "aging in place", hospice, or skilled nursing care. In Florida, the annual median cost for an assisted living community is around 42,000. Florida has specific rules associated with this type of community. The Bureau of Health community Regulation certifies this community type. Staff members obtain education in a number of fields. These include: community emergency procedures, universal precautions, infection control, and 26 hours of training plus a competency test. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to assure their needs are going to be met.
