Florida – Definition of Assisted Living Facility

Per Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration:

An assisted living facility (ALF) is designed to provide personal care services in the least restrictive and most home-like environment. These facilities can range in size from one resident to several hundred and may offer a wide variety of personal and nursing services designed specifically to meet an individual’s personal needs.

Facilities are licensed to provide routine personal care services under a “Standard” license, or more specific services under the authority of “Specialty” licenses.

ALFs meeting the requirements for a Standard license may also qualify for specialty licenses. The purpose of “Specialty Licenses” is to allow individuals to “age in place” in familiar surroundings that can adequately and safely meet their continuing healthcare needs.

Turn a Life Around …

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word,

a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,

all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
― Leo Buscaglia

What to expect

When you work with our local team, you get access to years of local senior housing knowledge and experience in matching clients with the communities that most closely fit their needs.

As we work together I’ll encourage you to:

  • Openly share needs, concerns and any special requirements,
  • Breathe easy, as I ease the stress of finding and comparing your best community choices,
  • Ask the right questions on guided tours of communities so you can gather the information you need to make an informed decision.

We are your go-to resource, connecting clients with community and professional resources – attorneys, financial advisors, realtors, move managers, insurance advisors – to name a few.

Who we are

Since 1996, Always Best Care has been a resource for families across the country searching for senior living solutions. Here in Tampa Bay we have succeeded in helping families find housing in challenging circumstances, such as:

  • someone with dementia who was relocating from another state,
  • elderly parents with a disabled son whose home was lost in a fire,
  • age 21-year student with unique health conditions needing a short-term respite stay,
  • 50-yr old professional suffering with aphasia from a stroke and needing assistive care,
  • someone being discharged from a hospital within days and with no local family.

When you work with our local team, you get access to years of local senior housing knowledge and experience in matching clients with the communities that most closely fit their needs.

Testimonial Excerpt …

Michele’s knowledge of the Assisted Living market was invaluable.  It saved us our time and energy to research the market, sort through their information, and arrange visits.  With Michele’s help we had placed my sister in the new facility within three weeks of engaging her.
