Independent Living in Lakeland, FL

Independent living communities, also known simply as retirement communities in Lakeland, Florida, are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age.

Think of Lakeland retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.

Cost of Independent Living in Lakeland, FL

The median monthly cost of independent living in Lakeland is around $2,379 in the city proper and $1,939 within the metropolitan area. The median monthly cost for independent living in the state of Florida is around $2,700.
