When most people think of Orlando, Florida, they think of Walt Disney World and the Magic Kingdom. However, when seniors think of Orlando, they think of sunny skies and retirement.

Orlando assisted living provides seniors with a community that has many activities and opportunities to spend time doing what they love. Sure the region may be known for its tourism and theme parks, but there is more to the city than meets the eye.

From festivals to museums and performing arts, assisted living in Orlando is full of entertainment. Residents who enjoy films can head to the Florida Film Festival that occurs each year in the region. Celebrities and stars join the community each year in celebration of movies from throughout the world. Seniors who would rather attend a festival focused on plays can visit The Harriett Lake Festival of New Plays or the Orlando Cabaret Festival.

There are opportunities to attend theatre and music performances during each year in Orlando. Assisted living residents can visit the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre, the Orlando Shakespere Theatre, or the Central Florida Ballet.

For residents that enjoy shopping, there are plenty of shopping malls, art galleries and antique shops in the region. One of the largest malls in the country, The Florida Mall, is located in Orlando. Assisted living seniors can visit more than 250 stores in the mall and seven large department stores.

Deciding to move into Orlando assisted living facilities is a difficult decision. Residents can be confident that they receive the best care available and maintain a level of independence that makes them comfortable.

Finding a community that appeals to you in climate, entertainment, and needs is key in making a successful transition.
