Manny Cominsky

Retirement is your time to relax and enjoy yourself after years of working hard and raising a family, and what better place to do so than sunny Florida? Known for its beautiful weather, world-renowned beaches, and exciting attractions, Florida has long been the iconic American retirement destination. With so many people moving down to Florida for their retirement, it’s no surprise that the state is filled with amazing senior living communities, many of them affiliated with their popular 55+ active adult community counterparts. Given all of Florida’s amazing senior living options we could only cover a few here, but read below to learn more about 7 of the most popular senior living companies in Florida below.

Freedom Pointe at The Villages 

If there’s one name that’s synonymous with retirement community living in Florida it’s The Villages. As we’ve covered before, The Villages is one of the largest active adult communities in the country and is really more akin to a city than what many people would consider an adult community. With over 125,000 residents and 60,000 homes, The Villages plans to develop another 60,000 homes over the next two decades. The Villages is known for its recreational department, numerous golf courses, and town squares with free nightly entertainment and restaurants. With this much success, and unique social opportunities, it's no wonder that The Villages is one of the most popular senior living companies in Florida. 

But while many people know about The Villages’ 55+ active adult communities, fewer people know that The Villages also offers an amazing senior living community called Freedom Pointe at the Villages. As a lifecare community that offers independent living, assisted living, memory care, and long-term care and rehab, Freedom Pointe lets seniors comfortably age in one location, while also enjoying all of the excitement and amenities that come with living in The Villages.


An incredibly popular nationwide senior living company with 4 locations in Florida is Enlivant. Founded in 1981, Enlivant focuses on providing high quality assisted living and memory care communities with every Enlivant community providing care through a full-time licensed nurse and a team of Resident Care Partners. Enlivant communities offer a range of services and amenities, including full service, 7 day a week dining programs with menus created by chefs and dieticians to provide seniors with healthy, nutritious meals every day. 

Sinceri Senior Living

Another nationwide brand that is starting to make serious inroads in Florida is Sinceri Senior Living, which currently operates 3 branches in the Jacksonville, Florida area. While Sinceri Senior Living operates independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities throughout the country, Sinceri’s 3 Florida locations are all memory care facilities. Sinceri Senior Living’s Memory Care program is known for its exclusive Meaningful Moments program that allows residents and caregivers to bond and build a relationship over the senior resident’s own life story, as well as their likes and dislikes. This ensures Sinceri’s senior residents are living in an environment that is familiar and friendly. 

Sunrise Senior Living

Given that it’s one of the largest senior living companies in the whole country, it’s no surprise that Sunrise Senior Living is such a popular option for Florida seniors. Sunrise Senior Living offers a wide range of senior living, including not only a full range of care services across the acuity spectrum from independent living through skilled nursing, but also through its multiple different brands including its high-end Monogram Collection. Sunrise Senior Living communities are known for their high level of care as well as their wide range of services and amenities, from chef-inspired dining to personalized assisted living.

Atria provides delicious dining options that are carefully prepared by experienced chefs, and they cater to personal tastes and special dietary needs. Atria communities offers several services and amenities, including housekeeping, transportation, and medical care. Atria also has Memory Care neighborhoods that provide specialized care and events for those facing Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and memory impairment.
