Senior Apartments in Lakeland, FL

Senior apartments are communities geared exclusively toward residents 55+, and offer amenities similar to a typical apartment complex.

The monthly median cost for a senior apartment in both the Lakeland metropolitan area and the state of Florida is around $795.

When it comes to senior apartments, Lakeland, Florida offers many great options, and A Place for Mom can help you find the right one.
