Florida as a Senior Living Destination

Posted By on June 8, 2019

Florida has been a well-known travel destination for many years, but it has also become the capital of senior living communities for many reasons. While other states have been known to have appealing retirement destinations, Florida dominates the senior living industry with a plethora of communities throughout the state that offer upscale amenities, warm climates, and relaxing environments for seniors to enjoy their retirement in.

At HarborChase Senior Living, we believe that Florida is an excellent destination for older adults who want to enhance their senior living experience. We have developed a multitude of communities for residents to choose from when considering a move to Florida. No matter which community your loved one decides on, they’ll be engaged, supported, and invigorated each and every day.

We’re highlighting some of the reasons so many seniors have decided to move to Florida so our readers are aware of the benefits!

A Relaxing Lifestyle & Warm Climates

Florida is popular not only for its warm climate and sunny weather, but it’s also known for its slow-paced, relaxing atmosphere for older adults seeking comfort. Many locations in Florida tend to avoid colder weather and it’s common for the temperature in Florida to be in the 80s for most of the year!

Many states further north fall victim to dangerous blizzards, cold temperatures, and snow storms that make living environments challenging for seniors. Even if your loved one is okay cooler weather, it can be hazardous for them to maintain a driveway, roof, and vehicle when they’re continually freezing over. These weather conditions cause damage to the home, pose safety risks to your loved one’s health, and make for a less appealing experience than a state with warm climates and beautiful beaches.

Unique Attractions

Aside from having the perfect climate, Florida also has an endless amount of touristic attractions, beautiful sights, and welcoming communities. Florida has beautiful beaches that welcome millions of newcomers every year. Along with the beaches, Florida’s theme parks, historical landmarks, and space exploration centers are scattered throughout the state, providing additional attractions for thrill seekers and adventurers alike.

Some of the most popular attractions in Florida are:

  • Disney World, Universal Studios, and Busch Gardens (Perfect for visiting family members!)
  • Kennedy Space Center
  • Miami Beach
  • Daytona International Speedway
  • The Everglades
  • Key West

Whether your parent or family member prefers to spend the day at the beach relaxing while they read a book, or exploring the hidden world of the Everglades, Florida has something for everyone! If your loved one is passionate about wildlife, Florida is an excellent place to live because there is extraordinary biodiversity that provides learning and volunteer opportunities!
