We don't think it's hard to explain why Panama City has such a high percentage of seniors (over 16 percent, which is about 4 percent more than the national avg.). This is really the norm for many Florida cities - most certainly due to the abundant sunshine, proximity to the beach in many locations, and really, an large number of medical services, assisted living facilities, and senior care options.
It is interesting to note that we did not find much senior services information on the City of Panama City official website - usually, most large cities have a department of aging or a senior services department. As there are so many seniors in this area relative to the population, it would be great to have this offering on their website. Until then, we'll try to provide as much information as we can about senior living in Panama City as we can!
This page was created to offer a useful and accurate starting point for your research into assisted living options in Panama City.
We are fortunate that the residents, and seniors of Panama City have many great resources to help keep them active, engaged, and healthy. These resources are also helpful to families, and caregivers to seniors as well.
A prominent agency serving Panama City seniors is the Area Agency on Aging for North Florida, which provides numerous programs and services, serving as the designated Aging Resource Center for the Panhandle and Big Bend areas. One of the significant features to this agency is it's Elder Helpline, which 'is a statewide network that provides information, referral and assistance to seniors, caregivers, professionals, and the general public.' The helpline's number is 1-800-96-ELDER.
At the time of this writing, the City of Panama City's website states that a 'senior services' section/department is on the way. As we receive more information about what will be offered, we will post them here! Intro by D. Besnette
