Information About Assisted Living in Sarasota

Information About Assisted Living in Sarasota

Spanish explorers first discovered the bay area around 1513. Surviving maps from the 1700s name it Zara Zoté, which is thought to be what the Native Americans called it. When the United States took control of Florida it was first Sara Sota, later combined before statehood to Sarasota. Until the late 1800s, Sarasota was a seasonal fishing settlement with no permanent residents. Several wealthy families from the North came together by accident over a period of about 40 years, contributing to year round settlement. By the end of World War I, the city had just over 2,000 people. Assisted living in Sarasota can be quite enjoyable with beautiful beaches on several keys. A consistent year round climate, thanks to the warm Gulf of Mexico water, allows seniors to spend as much time as they choose outside.

Both Meals on Wheels of Sarasota and Friendship Meals on Wheels provide home delivery meals to Sarasota assisted living residents. A pioneer nationally, Sarasota County’s Friendship Center provides Health and Dental Services to those over 55 with lower fixed incomes or limited access to insurance from a fully volunteer-based staff of doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and other health professionals. Sarasota assisted living seniors can utilize SCAN, a service of the county, which offers an exhaustive directory of services available to seniors. iTN Sarasota is a truly unique transportation service providing a 24/7 membership-based, taxi-like service, but with the care assisted living Sarasota seniors would expect. The service’s motto is “Arm through arm. Door through door.” No money is exchanged and tipping is not allowed. It’s like having your own car, only seniors get to ride rather than drive. One additional resource of services available to Sarasota assisted living residents is the Florida Department of Elder Affairs, which provides a long list of providers of senior services statewide.

Sarasota Senior-Friendly Activities

Cost of Assisted Living in Florida

While assisted living care is primarily funded through private savings, Florida seniors may qualify for financial assistance through government programs depending on their income level and personal finances.

  • Assisted Living for the Elderly (ALE) Waiver – A part of Medicaid, this waiver covers care management, assisted living services and incontinence supplies (if needed) for income-eligible seniors age 60 and older.
  • Medicaid Assistive Care Services (ACS) – This program is a Medicaid-based state plan for adults age 18 and older who have a medical need for supportive living 24 hours a day.
  • Long-Term Care Community Diversion Program – This Medicaid waiver is for seniors age 65 and older who would otherwise qualify for Medicaid nursing home placement, but have chosen to receive assisted living care instead.
  • Optional State Supplementation (OSS) – A state-based, cash assistance program, OSS is available to income-eligible adults age 65 or older to help defray the costs of long-term residential care.
