Central Florida and Orlando Assisted Living Communities

WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

Central Florida is a quiet region of small farming communities dominated by one town that hit the big time very, very hard: Orlando. That city is now the single most popular destination in Florida, due to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and a host of other attractions, large and small.

The economy of the region has boomed as a result, and many of the smaller communities have benefited from the boom while retaining the quiet, rural character that makes them so livable. Others have experienced considerable growth, especially in the Orlando-Tampa corridor along I-4.

Central Florida touches the Atlantic coast in just one area, but that area is a doozy: the Volusia County shoreline includes Daytona Beach, sometimes referred to as "the world's most popular beach," attracting an estimated 8 million visitors annually. The region's Gulf coast is in complete contrast: the southern part of what is known as "the Nature Coast," it is sparsely inhabited in comparison.
