10 Best Nursing Homes in St Petersburg, FL

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Florida has long been considered an ideal place to retire to, which is certainly true of St. Petersburg, a city nicknamed The Sunshine City. It’s also no surprise that St. Petersburg is a city that has plenty of options for people looking for nursing homes. For those who want to live in a warm climate surrounded by plenty to do — from nature to art — St. Petersburg is a great place to be.

Sometimes referred to as skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes provide some level of medical care for residents. It should be noted that people looking into nursing homes could be seeking different types of care. Assisted living facilities offer support for seniors who need help with daily activities but are still somewhat active in everyday life, while memory care offers 24/7 support for those who have Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other memory-related needs. Assisted living and memory care living facilities are often bundled within the category of nursing homes, but they offer different services.

For those looking to move to St. Petersburg, Florida, you’ll find plenty of options with A Place For Mom’s partner facilities. There are 32 assisted living and memory care facilities within 10 miles of downtown St. Petersburg, including communities like Sunset Beach and Pasadena. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about the process, from how much it costs to how to pay for those expenses, plus it will highlight activities in the St. Petersburg area.

How people pay for a nursing home in St. Petersburg

There are several ways for people to pay for nursing homes, assisted living, and memory care in St. Petersburg, Florida. Here you will find everything you need to know about how to cover the cost of senior living through private pay, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs benefits, Medicaid, or Medicare.

Private pay methods

Paying for assisted living or memory care with private pay means that you are paying with the money that you or a family member have accumulated over the course of a lifetime. This money could come from savings, retirement funds, pensions, or investments.

Any one of the above or any combination of the options above can help you cover the cost of assisted living or memory care. You can also use any of the options listed below:

Number of veterans who live in St. Petersburg

About 22% of St. Petersburg veterans are 75+

Veterans in or looking to move to St. Petersburg, Florida, can find benefits that can help offset the cost of assisted living or memory care facilities. VA Pensions are useful in covering some of the costs of senior living, as is the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. Aid and Attendance benefits are earmarked for veterans who need assistance on a daily basis with activities such as bathing, dressing, or eating or have other issues.

Though a wonderful benefit, A&A is known for its complex application process. Fortunately, resources in St. Petersburg can help seniors, starting with Pinellas County’s guide to help veterans determine how to access benefits. Veterans services officers are another resource to help veterans with the application process; these officers have navigated this process many times and know how to check for eligibility, fill out the application, and connect veterans to benefits.

Veterans services officers can be found through Veterans Services Organizations (VSOs). Several VSOs are located centrally at the St. Petersburg Regional VA Office, including AMVETS, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Paralyzed Veterans of America, and Vietnam Veterans of America.

Those who were disabled as a result of their service can apply for VA Disability Compensation. The resources listed above can help with this process as well.

Medicaid

Medicaid in Florida is called State Medicaid Management Care (SMMC), and Florida offers a Medicaid guide to help seniors understand both the benefits and the eligibility requirements. While Medicaid does not cover the cost of living in an assisted living or memory care facility, Florida nursing home residents can receive in-home care through the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver system.

Florida’s Statewide Medicaid Managed Long-Term Care Managed Care (LTCMC) plans cover the costs of nursing care, chore services, and medical equipment and supplies for those who qualify. Within the LTCMC plans are two programs: the Long-Term Care (LTC) Managed Care Program and the Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) Program. To qualify, seniors living in assisted living or memory care facilities need to meet two standards: financial eligibility and being in need of a nursing home-level of care.[03]

It is important to note that each LTCMC plan contracts with its own providers, meaning not all facilities are covered under every plan. It is crucial that seniors choose the plan that covers the facility they want to enter.

For those seeking memory care, Florida offers support services through its Alzheimer’s Disease Initiative (ADI) within the HCBS waiver system. ADI respite care is available for caregivers of adults who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or related memory disorders that may interfere with daily living activities.

Florida’s State Health Insurance Program (SHIP), a Medicare program run by local Medicaid, is called Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders (SHINE); it offers counseling to seniors who need help connecting to resources. The local Area Agency on Aging and long-term care ombudsman can also help seniors get connected with helpful benefits.

Those in Florida looking to apply to SMMC can do so online or by calling 866-762-2237. The application process can be complex to navigate, so seniors in Florida are recommended to use the resources available to make the process easier.

Medicare

Medicare is a federally run long-term health insurance program that can help offset some of the costs associated with seniors’ needs for people 65 and over. While it can help cover the costs of things like doctor’s visits, prescription medications, therapy, and dietary counseling, Medicare will not cover the cost of living for assisted living or memory care facilities.

Florida Medicare Savings Programs can help eligible seniors cover expenses like Medicare copays and deductibles, while the Drug Assistance Program can help with medication costs. The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) helps seniors who need nursing home-level care receive that care where they currently live.

Applications for Medicare can be completed through the Florida ACCESS system or through the local Department of Children and Families Center. The application can be complicated, so seniors are highly encouraged to use local resources to help with the process. The local ombudsman knows the process well, can answer questions, and help determine whether you or your loved one is eligible.

Applicants can also use the Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders (SHINE) program for free counseling on the application process; SHINE is run through Florida’s Medicaid program. Florida seniors can also seek aid through the local Social Security office or the local Area Agency on Aging.

Understand Florida laws and regulations for nursing homes

All skilled nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and memory care facilities are required to be licensed in Florida. This is done a little differently depending on the definition of care service.

Nursing homes in Florida are licensed by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). Because they are required to be licensed, they undergo regular inspections. For nursing homes, inspections in Florida happen every one to three years, though they are typically conducted once a year unannounced. These inspections are completed to make sure that Florida nursing homes are following state and federal guidelines.[04] If a nursing home does not meet standards set by the state and federal government, they are required to submit a Plan of Correction.[04] Anyone interested can view inspection reports through AHCA’s Public Records Search.

Nursing homes must do several things to keep their license. Every nursing home in Florida must have at least one dietician, nurse, and physician on the grounds at all times. All nursing homes must provide a safe, clean, comfortable, and homelike environment. Nursing homes must also be set up for individuals with physical ailments, meaning that they are required to have ramps, safety rails, and other precautions to prevent falls and accidents. Medical staff at nursing homes are required to meet ongoing education requirements.

Florida nursing home staffing requirements revolve around three levels of care providers: certified nursing assistants (CNAs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and registered nurses (RNs). It is required that there are enough CNAs, LPNs, and RNs to provide 3.6 hours of direct care per patient per week.[04]

Assisted living rules and regulations

Assisted living facilities in Florida are considered a vital part of long-term care; they are required to be licensed by the Bureau of Health Facility Regulation, and relicensing occurs every two years.[05] Beyond standard licensure, specialty licenses such as limited nursing services, extended congregate care, and limited mental health services can be acquired by facilities offering specialized care plans.

To become licensed, assisted living facilities must meet standards when it comes to staffing and staff training; for example, the regulations require minimum staff hours per week for different numbers of residents to ensure adequate coverage for residents’ needs. Inspections occur at the time of licensing, as well as any time the licensing agency deems an inspection necessary. Inspections assess food safety, physical safety, and biomedical waste; interested parties can find inspections via the Agency for Health Care Administration’s public records.

Assisted living facilities are required to have at least one staff member with certification in First Aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation be on the premises 24 hours a day.[05] The kitchen staff is required to provide meals that meet the nutritional needs of residents, including therapeutic diets ordered by medical providers.

Residents also must meet eligibility restrictions. Those who wish to live in assisted living cannot need 24-hour assistance, need to be able to perform many of the activities of daily living, and should be able to participate in social or leisure activities. New residents in all Florida assisted living facilities are examined by a licensed nurse within 60 days of moving in and are then examined monthly thereafter.[05]

Memory care facilities rules and regulations

Memory care facilities are similarly inspected, but they meet slightly different requirements. For example, memory care facilities are required to have one person on staff at all times who is trained specifically for dementia care.[06] The Bureau of Healthy Facility Regulation licenses all memory care living facilities in Florida; all memory care facilities are inspected upon licensing, with licensing needing to be renewed every two years. Inspections cover food safety, physical safety, staffing requirements, and emergency procedures.

Residents also have to meet certain requirements; to be admitted to a memory care facility, one must have a medical evaluation no more than 60 days prior to moving in, or no more than 30 days after moving in. This evaluation helps determine a personalized care plan for each resident in memory care.[06]

What to expect from nursing homes in St. Petersburg

Moving into skilled nursing care, assisted living, or memory care living is not an easy decision. Not only do you have to find a place that can offer the proper level of care for you or your loved one, but you also want to find a place that offers the desired lifestyle. Fortunately, St. Petersburg, Florida, has plenty of options.

A variety of care options for different needs

A Place For Mom does not partner with nursing homes, but it does have 32 partner assisted living or memory care facilities within a 10-mile radius of downtown St. Petersburg. Four of these are standalone assisted living facilities, while one is a standalone memory care facility. Five offer a combination of assisted living and independent living, while six go one step further and add memory care into the mix, offering a progressive type of care that’s appealing to careseekers as it covers many life stages. Three offer a mix of assisted living, adult day care, and memory care, and 11 are considered assisted living/memory care.

For those interested in group homes, St. Petersburg offers one standalone group home, as well as one facility that’s a combination of a group home and a memory care complex. There’s truly a right setting for all residents of St. Petersburg.

Amenities and activities that embrace seniors’ stage of life

The goal of assisted living or memory care living is to make life as fulfilling as possible for residents while they are under a facility’s roof. Because of that, assisted living facilities and memory care facilities offer a whole host of activities and amenities. There are organized outings and group activities and, depending on the facility, you’ll find a bar, a dining area, a theater, game rooms, TV lounges, barber shops, and more. More than three-quarters of A Place for Mom’s partner facilities offer activity directors, art classes, live music, picnics or BBQs, and holiday parties.

Health care to keep daily needs manageable

Health care differs from place to place and type of facility — whether it is an assisted living facility or a memory care facility — but you should expect to find some combination of medication management, 24/7 staff, on-call physicians, and on-site nursing. A full 84% of A Place for Mom partner facilities offer some aspect of memory care, and many offer specialized memory care training. Furthermore, health care can often be received on-site, with visiting nurses, podiatrists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech therapists available at the vast majority of these partner facilities.

Senior activities in St. Petersburg

Known as The Sunshine City, you won’t be surprised to hear that St. Petersburg, Florida, is a great place to get outside. Not only that, but there is plenty of culture to be found as well.

For those wanting to enjoy the outdoors, a relaxing day on the water could be just the ticket. Catch the sunset and then stay for the light show at the Skyway Bridge; cruises are available for those who prefer the waterway, and dolphin sightings are common here. If you love animals, Florida is a boon for bird-watching, and it is especially good at Sawgrass Lake Park. If you time it just right, you can see thousands of birds making their plans for migration.

We can’t mention outdoor attractions in Florida without including the flora and the fauna! The Sunken Gardens started as a hobby in 1903 by George Turner; now, it is a special place where you can see rare plants as you take a quiet and relaxing stroll.

St. Petersburg also has plenty for the art lovers out there! Salvador Dalí fans will want to check out the Dalí Museum; its art spans his entire career, and it offers some accommodations for those with vision or hearing impairments.
