Information About Assisted Living Facility 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. Sarasota - Downtown from Selby Garden
