Because everyone is unique in their needs, we offer price ranges based on your level of Care. This level is determined by a AHCA Form 1823(available on this site) that is completed by your Physician and tells us specifically about the areas in which you need assistance including with Bathing, Toileting, Dressing, Ambulation, Transfers, Medications, etc. Give us a call and we can help determine your range.

Call us and we can point you in the right direction. We have decades of experience helping families qualify for Medicaid, Veterans Benefits and various other Long Term Care Programs.
There are advantages to both Large and Small Facilities. As a 24 bed facility, we offer the level of detail and communication found in smaller facilities, while still being able to offer the unique activities and staffing of a large facility.
We have both Private and Semi-private rooms. But our philosophy differs in that we believe its healthier to stay out of your room during the day; engaged in activities and with your friends. Check out the rooms, they are spacious and comfortable with large bathrooms, walk in showers, on demand water heaters and an emergency pull cord system.
Yes, but again our approach is unique. We use rfid wrist bands to allow those residents with Memory impairment to roam and interact but still have the ability to restrict access away from certain areas and rooms. This automated oversight allows those residents to feel included and part of the family without compromising the needs of the other residents.
To Our Residents, Family Members and Visitors:
We know some of you may be concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) being reported in the media and how it may impact us here [Insert Center Name]. Ensuring residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment is our greatest concern. At this time, we don’t have any cases in our facility. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Florida Surgeon General have recommended a variety of steps that we are implementing to help reduce the potential for the virus to enter our building. However, we need your help in battling COVID-19. Below are some examples of how you can help protect the residents, as well as prevent the spread throughout the community.
At this time, we request that you do not visit A Country Place. Because we are in a County with a confirmed Covid-19 infection our health department is asking us to Limit all visitation. Their definition of Limiting is: “The individual would not be allowed to come into the facility, except for certain situations, such as end of life situations or when a visitor is essential to the resident’s well being or care”. We welcome families to utilize our front Pergola area which is located in the front yard area and to maintain a 6 foot distance when interacting. Call ahead and we will arrange to have staff bring your family member to that area via the South Entrance. The exception to this visitation would be if you have traveled internationally or on a cruise ship or or have had within the last 48 hours any symptoms of respiratory illness, or if you have recently spent time with anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms. Those symptoms include: cough, fever, sore throat, runny nose, and/or shortness of breath. We understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important, and there are a variety of other ways you might consider connecting with them. These may include telephone (813-475-4565), email, text, or through Skype or Facebook.
The Florida Surgeon General has requested that all long-term care providers immediately implement health screening measures upon entry to the facility for all visitors, family, vendors
and staff. Upon arrival at the facility, please ring the front bell(do not use an access code). You will be greeted by staff who will verbally screen you with a brief questionnaire
and provide you with hand-washing, a face mask and Coronavirus education. This Front Door Foyer area will be open at 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, 7 days a week. We would appreciate your limiting your arrival at the facility to that time window and that entrance. If you wish to arrive during a time outside this 12 hour window, please call the facility administrator to advise and we will schedule a screening upon your arrival. We also request that pet visits be suspended for the time being.
Our center is following the recommendations of the CDC on prevention steps, including following strict hand-washing procedures, and in many circumstances, wearing gowns and gloves when interacting with residents who are sick. We also are staying up-to-date with the CDC recommendations as they are updated. In addition, here A Country Place ALF is in close contact with the local and state health department, as well as the Agency for Health Care Administration and are following their guidance.
We will notify you if any residents or staff are diagnosed with COVID-19. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Administrator (Rob): (813) 891-0549
