Information About Senior Living Option in Miami

Located on the Atlantic coast of Florida, Miami offers an exciting, multicultural experience and short, mild winters ensuring that Miami senior living remains among the most attractive in the nation. Although it is a well-known destination for tourism and international business, Miami offers seniors more than a place to visit with affordable housing and comparatively low taxes. Miami's unique history and geography make it an especially diverse city, and combined with mild temperatures, make it an excellent place for senior citizens to retire.

Miami Attractions

The greatest attraction in Miami, naturally, is the area’s many beautiful beaches, which entice millions of tourists each year and offer a chance for pure relaxation. For those who want some respite from the sun, Miami is host to a number of exciting annual events ranging from golf tournaments and fashion shows to music and food festivals. Major outlet malls, high-class international boutiques and outdoor retail promenades provide shopping experiences that add to the appeal of senior living in Miami. NASCAR racing venues and deep-sea fishing round out the variety of attractions in the Miami Metropolitan Area that create a satisfying lifestyle for senior citizens of all interests and personality types.

Miami Senior Activities

Because South Florida attracts such a large number of senior citizens, many find it especially easy to find good friends who share similar values and interests. One of the easiest ways to do this is through one of the city’s many senior centers. Due to Miami’s diverse population, many organizations have reached out to help build bonds among ethnic and cultural groups. Miami-Dade County operates the Haitian American Senior Center in the Little Haiti neighborhood specifically for the Haitian American elderly. Private organizations, such as Jewish Community Services of South Florida, also run senior centers within the area.

With a metropolitan population of more than 5.5 million, a city as large as Miami offers world-class medical services right in the heart of town. The University of Miami Health System, which operates multiple acute care and specialty facilities in Miami-Dade County, staffs an entire Gerontology division devoted to caring for those enjoying Miami senior living. As a part of a university medical school, the University of Miami Health System provides cutting-edge treatments and the opportunity to participate in clinical trials for diseases.
