108 Assisted Living Facilities near Tampa, FL

The diverse and vibrant Tampa, Florida, is a popular destination for retirees from all around the country. Many people from the eastern U.S. and across the Midwest retire in Tampa every year. These out-of-towners come to Tampa looking for warm weather, beaches, and an escape from a state income tax. And, eventually, many of these retirees will need assisted living. Assisted living is residential, long-term senior care that provides meals, activities, and assistance with daily activities — tasks that may become challenging with aging, like bathing and taking medications.

Because of the sustained interest in Tampa as a retirement haven since the 1960s, there are plenty of assisted living options. Within a 10-mile radius of Tampa city center, A Place for Mom partners with 27 assisted living communities. In this guide, we introduce you to assisted living communities in Tampa with top-rated care, meals and dining services, amenities, and more. We’ll also outline costs and review common questions about Medicaid, Medicare, veterans benefits, and helpful demographic information about senior living in Tampa, Florida.

Oak Manor Senior Living Community in Largo, FL

The facility is really beautiful with all the greenery, ducks etc. The staff is amazing and so caring and patient. And the food is wonderful and I love how they let you have access to the café for all day hours. I cannot say enough about the Oak Manor facility and staff. It was such a process making the best choice for mom and we were so happy with the results. I would not wish her to be anywhere else. Thanks to all the staff at Oak Manor, I will be forever grateful.

I have found that the staff is excellent in their caring for my wife. The grounds are very pretty. It does not seem like Assisted Living, but rather a group of cottages in a nice setting.

How families pay for assisted living in Tampa, Florida

Because assisted living provides both residential housing and personal care, most families and seniors pay for their assisted living with a mix of private means — like personal savings and investments — and public sources, like Medicaid. This section includes information on how to afford your ideal assisted living community in Tampa, Florida.

Private pay methods

The private resources seniors use to pay for assisted living often include more than just a retirement account. For example, some seniors have long-term care insurance that may cover necessary care services offered by assisted living communities. However, your policy may not cover the costs of room and board. If not, it might be possible to cash out your policy and use those funds for your total assisted living costs. Whether or not this is possible is entirely dependent on your individual plan, so be sure to ask your insurance provider directly.

Read on for some other common ways people pay for their assisted living costs:

Understand Florida laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

In Florida, the Bureau of Health Facilities Regulation licenses and regulates assisted living facilities. Depending on the care setting, the licenses and regulations may be slightly different. For example, residential group homes with a live-in caregiver need an additional license for Adult Foster Care. Assisted living communities that offer both independent living and skilled nursing units on-site need to apply for an Extended Congregate Care license. To be eligible for assisted living in Tampa, Florida, a senior should not require 24-hour nursing care. The senior should be able to successfully complete their activities of daily living with caregiver assistance. The following are some other regulations that Tampa assisted living communities must adhere to:

  • Facilities must be kept clean and hygienic.
  • Regular meals should be provided.
  • Residents are allowed to keep their own clothing and possessions in their room.
  • Spouses should be allowed to share the same room if they are both residents of the community.
  • Communication from the assisted living community with family members or guardians must happen at least every 30 days.

Employee training

All employees of assisted living communities are required to pass a background check. Within 30 days of starting their employment, caregiving staff must complete 1 hour of training on mitigating infectious diseases and 3 hours of training on senior residents’ needs. Administrative staff of assisted living facilities need to complete an initial 26 hours of training and 12 hours of continuing education every two years.

Inspection reports

After an initial inspection, assisted living communities in Tampa go through inspections every two years. Inspection results are available to the public on the Agency for Health Care Administration website. To find an inspection report, click the “Statement of Deficiencies” tab, and in the drop down menu for “Provider type” select “Assisted Living Facility.” To search for individual facilities, write the name of the facility under “Provider name,” or simply select “Hillsborough County” to see the inspection results for every assisted living community in Tampa.

Florida’s Compendium of Residential Care and Assisted Living Regulations and Policy, 2015

COVID-19 regulations for Tampa assisted living communities

Florida does not have any mandatory COVID-19 regulations for assisted living facilities, but it does use a preparedness checklist for nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other long-term care facilities. Some of the recommendations for assisted living communities to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 include the following:

Masking. Communities need a system to identify and manage ill residents and prevent visitors from spreading COVID-19 in the community.

Facility cleanliness. Proper hygiene like washing hands and regularly disinfecting frequently used areas should be followed by all staff members.

Staff safety. A written COVID-19 plan should be available to the staff, and ongoing education on virus prevention should be available for the staff, residents, and families.

What to expect from assisted living in Tampa, Florida

Since the 1960s, seniors from across the United States have flocked to Tampa, Florida, as a retirement haven. Pristine beaches, strong diversity, and no state income tax make up a large part of Tampa’s appeal. A growing local economy in the Tampa Bay area is also bringing in highly paid workers followed by aging parents. This persistent demand for senior living translates to a wide variety of assisted living options for Florida seniors.

Diverse demographics

Tampa is a very diverse city. Many assisted living communities in Tampa reflect this diversity by offering Spanish-speaking services and international cuisine options. From its racial and ethnic heterogeneity to its wide range in household income and ages of its residents, Tampa is called home by a huge variety of people. The largest age group in Tampa is between the ages of 25 and 39, making up 25.8% of the population. People 65+ make up 14.2% of the total population. In surrounding Tampa Bay areas, like Clearwater, however, people 65+ make up the largest age group.

Traditional assisted living with top-tier medical care

Though Tampa itself lends quick access to excellent health care in the area, over 60% of our partner Tampa assisted living communities have an on-site medical director who is either a board-certified physician or a nurse practitioner. On top of quick access to medical care, most assisted living communities in Tampa are traditional residential facilities offering daily meals, comfortable private or semi-private rooms, dedicated staff members to aid residents with daily activities, and some on-site amenities. The more luxurious assisted living communities, with expansive pools and more activities and amenities, tend to be in neighboring cities in the Tampa Bay area, like Clearwater and Wesley Chapel.

Assisted living in the greater Tampa Bay communities

Tampa and Tampa Bay are often referred to interchangeably, but Tampa Bay is the larger geographic area that includes cities like Tampa, Clearwater, and Wesley Chapel. We decided to expand on Clearwater and Wesley Chapel as important hubs for senior living in the Tampa Bay area.


Clearwater has a higher concentration of assisted living options than the city of Tampa. Some seniors enjoy Clearwater because many of the assisted living communities are oceanfront, with beautiful views over the water and closer proximity to the beach. There are also more luxury assisted living communities in Clearwater than in Tampa. And almost 23% of the population in Clearwater is over 65 years of age.

Wesley Chapel

Wesley Chapel is an affluent northern suburb of Tampa. Due to its high growth in the last 10 years, the assisted living communities in Wesley Chapel tend to be newer and have more suburban amenities, like on-site dog parks, walking paths, and putting greens. Despite having more amenities than assisted living in Tampa, assisted living communities in Wesley Chapel tend to be the same price as those in Tampa. Meaning, you can get more bang for your buck in Wesley Chapel.

Transportation for seniors in Tampa, Florida

Tampa is best explored by car, which is why 78% of our partnering assisted living communities in Tampa offer complimentary transportation. However, traffic in downtown Tampa can be fierce, and a drive across Tampa at peak traffic hours can take more than an hour.

For seniors who do not have access to transportation services, the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) runs the local bus system, which is an affordable, moderately reliable mode of transportation for locals.

The Sunshine Line is Tampa’s door-to-door transportation option for the elderly or disabled. Seniors can enroll in the program by calling their enrollment number, 813-272-7272.

Senior activities in Tampa, Florida

Living in the Tampa Bay area feels like living in a vacation destination because it is one. Many seniors of local assisted living communities enjoy group outings to local restaurants, malls, and casinos. Other well-loved group activities in our partnering assisted living communities include visits to the plentiful nearby beaches and birding expeditions. Walking clubs are one of the most popular activities in Tampa’s assisted living communities, and with the year-round sunshine, it’s not hard to see why.

Tampa makes senior activities accessible

Tampa’s Parks and Recreation Department has an exceptionally robust senior activities program. Water aerobics, quilting, and bridge are just a few of the many weekly activities free to seniors in Tampa, if they sign up on the Parks and Recreation website. The department also puts on regular formal dinners and dances for seniors, like the annual Silver Night Out Dance, which shows seniors in their finest enjoying fine dining and live entertainment.

Tampa seniors also have opportunities to attend retrospective concerts from acts like the Beach Boys, Elvis impersonators, Cher, and the Irish Tenors through the Adults at Leisure series at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Coordinators at Ruth Eckerd Hall also send musical acts directly to assisted living communities, so seniors can enjoy a show from the comfort of their community.

Tampa’s rich history means fun for history buffs

While visiting family members enjoy the classic Floridian theme park experience in Tampa, the older adults in the family may enjoy some of the more low-key options, like local historical sites. One of Tampa’s lesser-known charms is the Ybor City neighborhood, which is the only neighborhood in the South designated as a National Historic Landmark District. Visitors can stroll down palm tree-lined streets influenced by Spanish and Cuban architecture and learn how Ybor City made Tampa the cigar capital of the United States.

Getting outside in Tampa is easy

Nature and wildlife viewing is never far away in Tampa. Some of the most popular nature parks in the Tampa Bay area are Lettuce Lake Park and Weeden Island Preserve in St. Petersburg. Anywhere you go in the Tampa Bay area, you’re likely to see plenty of shorebirds and perhaps even spy an alligator. The Tampa Audubon Society is open to the public with advanced registration on its website, and it does a good job of listing the length and difficulty of their birding outings. Some birding routes, like the Circle B Bar Reserve, are even wheelchair accessible.
