The 10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Sunrise, FL

Sunrise is a largely suburban community in the western part of the Fort Lauderdale area on Florida's sandy Atlantic coast. Home to over 95,000 people, nearly 16% of the city's residents are seniors aged 65 and over. The town was originally incorporated in the 1960s as Sunrise Golf Village, and today, the city still has multiple golf courses for seniors to enjoy, such as The Bridges at Springtree.

Sunrise is part of the larger Fort Lauderdale metro area, and it is included in the region's AARP action plan for creating age-friendly communities. Crime is up to 40% lower in Sunrise than the national average, making the city fairly safe for seniors. Like much of Florida's east coast, Sunrise gets mostly light showers, and daily temperatures even in January usually average 75 degrees. This encourages outdoor activities for active seniors year-round.

Assisted living costs an average of $3,350 a month in Sunrise, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. This puts seniors' average housing costs in the city somewhat lower than both the state average cost of $3,500 a month and the national median cost of $4,000.

Note: Information for Sunrise was not available, so data from the nearest city, Miami, was used.
