Tampa FL Elder/Senior Housing Placement and Referral Agency

Residential Care Facilities in Tampa, Florida are also known as Assisted Living Facilities (ALF). Our elder/senior assisted living facility placement and referral agency will help elder/seniors find a private pay assisted living community or the appropriate senior living facility that will meet their senior care needs.

Assisted living Facilities (ALF) have been around since the early 1970's and refer to care for seniors who are non-medical; as a result, Medicare and Medi-Cal offer little support. These assisted living communities are designed to help seniors who have a decline in health in some way and need assistance with basic ADL (activities of daily living) such as bathing, dressing, supervision of medications and more. These retirement facilities provide these personal care services that allow residents to remain independent in their apartments.

The size of assisted living facilities can vary from less than 10 beds to more than 200 beds. These larger assisted living facilities are retirement residences or small apartments turned into care centers. These senior living communities offer studios or one bedroom models and offer a home-like atmosphere.

Assisted Living Facilities often use outside home health agencies to provide intermittent skilled nursing services. In most cases, the agency visits the facility daily or as needed. This approach in caring for seniors has allowed them to maintain their dignity and independence.


Typically, all assisted living communities offer their residents prepared meals three times a day. There is also help with laundry and light housekeeping. Some communities plan social events, trips, and activities the residents can participate in. Depending on the elder/senior community, residents may have access to a fitness center, beauty salon, swimming pool and transportation. Many assisted living communities also allow pets providing he or she can care for it.

Assisted living facilities are regulated at the state level. Each state has their own policies that define and regulate what care and services are required for an assisted living community to meet the state standards.

There are many senior living communities, facilities and agencies that serve elder/seniors in Tampa, Florida which are Continuing Care Retirement Communities, Hospice Care facilities, Independent Living Communities, Memory Care facilities, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Residential Care Homes and In-Home Care Agencies. Carewatchers an elder/senior placement and referral agency will help you locate any of these senior living options.
