Orlando (FL) Senior Living Communities
Orlando is more than just Mickey Mouse and Goofy. It’s a city with its own culture that includes world-class performing arts, museums and other impressive attractions. Before searching for Orlando senior living options, find out what we’ve uncovered.
The Orlando Museum of Art has a large collection of works from ancient Aztec sculptures to modern American graphic art. Downtown’s Wells' Built Museum of African American History & Culture is an original stop on Chitlin Circuit and celebrates the legacy of Orlando’s African-American heritage. To escape the concrete of the city, spend time in the Leu Gardens (free admission!), a 50-acre oasis of palms, cycads, vines and azaleas. The Museum is a restored 19th century home once owned by an old film star, an industrialist and sugar cane farmers. Other museums worth a visit are the Mennello Museum of American Art, Orange County Regional History Center, The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida, and the Grand Bohemian Gallery.
Check out these Orlando performing arts venues and groups: Orlando Shakespeare Theater, Orlando Reparatory Theater, Central Florida Ballet, Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, Mad Cow Theater, and the CityArts Factory.
Orlando is relatively inexpensive for a big city with a cost of living just below the national average. Orlando senior living options are equally appealing. A one-bedroom in an assisted living facility averages $3,095 a month (U.S. average is $3,261), according to a Genworth Financial survey. A private room in a nursing home averages $229 a day, while a semi-private averages $213. Hiring a home health aide at 44 hours a week averages $39,994 yearly. Don’t forget that if you work in Florida there is no state income tax. And retirement income is not taxed.
