Why Is Florida Such a Great Place for Seniors?

March 8, 2022

20% of Floridians are 65 years of age or older. That’s a larger percentage than any other state, which begs the question: why is Florida such a great place to age? As Palm Beach home health care providers, we think it’s important for us to understand the reasons why our clients live down here.

For that reason, we’d like to discuss some of the benefits that Florida has to offer.

It Has Great Weather

First, let’s get the obvious out of the way: everyone loves Florida’s sunny weather. Research shows that, as we age, we become more sensitive to cold weather. It therefore makes sense that so many of us head down south.

There Are Less Taxes to Worry About

Finances can be overwhelming, especially if you don't have a care manager who can help keep track of paperwork, insurance, and so on. Luckily, Florida makes things a bit easier.

It doesn’t have a state income tax, which means it doesn’t tax Social Security either. Our cost-of-living is also slightly less than the national average, and there’s even a homestead exemption that can help some seniors significantly reduce their property taxes.

It’s a Great Place to Meet People

Loneliness is a problem many of us face at some point in our lives. Often, it’s much easier to meet people when you’re surrounded by others you share experiences with.

This might even be the best reason for seniors to live here: there are plenty of other seniors down here, which means there are events, clubs, and other activities that you can enjoy, which will allow you to socialize and meet people.
