For many people, one of the first things you think of when you hear the term assisted living is a hospital-like setting, with fluorescent lights and linoleum floors. Nowadays, these communities are designed for active seniors who need help with daily tasks but want to live in a residential community where they no longer have to worry about cleaning house or mowing lawns.
Gone are the days of clinical communities with staff members in lab coats and days spent in bed. Instead, assisted living communities are bustling with activities to help seniors live their best lives. They range in size from a few dozen residents to massive facilities with hundreds of community members.
Located close to Miami and Atlantic Beaches, Hialeah is a popular place for seniors to retire. Approximately 20% of the population is aged 65 and older, and for those looking for assisted living, there are multiple communities to choose from. Consider our top three to see if one of these locations fit your needs.
