A note from our publisher:
55+ Magazine is made up of dedicated professionals who take their jobs very seriously. In this section, we assist seniors, families and healthcare professionals in choosing the appropriate Assisted Living Facility for their loved one or client, by providing our readers with current and accurate information. We understand that choosing an ALF is a very important decision and do not take it lightly.
Due to recent unlawful and unethical events in several communities in the state of Florida, 55+ Magazine has decided to remove the total listing of Assisted Living Facilities from the print magazine. Monitoring the ever-changing status of thousands of facilities is extremely difficult. It is not helpful to simply provide names, addresses and phone numbers, then take it for granted that these facilities have no violations and are providing appropriate services.
We recommend working with professionals while you are searching for that special place for your loved one. A social worker, a case manager or an industry professional can better assist you in the search. It is critical that you visit the facility to make sure that you and your loved one will feel comfortable with the new home. DO NOT COMPROMISE ON CARE!
The Agency for Health Care Administration oversees assisted living facilities and other alternative housing facilities.
