  1. Access to Medical Care - Floridians are blessed with top quality medical care. Florida Hospital in Orlando is nationally ranked in 10 specialties and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Tampa General is nationally ranked in four specialties and also CARF accredited. In all, Florida has seven nationally ranked hospitals scattered throughout the state, making close, quality medical care an option for most Florida residents.
  2. Public Transportation Availability - If you are no longer able to safely drive, Florida has systems in place to ensure that your mobility is not restricted. Busses, shuttles, ride shares, wheelchair accessible taxis, and more help disabled Florida residents to travel freely. Due to the large number of retired citizens in Florida, even most small towns understand the needs of their residents and provide the necessary transportation solutions to meet those needs. Also, if you are a member of a nursing or retirement home, these facilities will usually provide you with transportation options.

  4. Numerous Senior Employment Options - If, in the course of your retirement, you decide that you would like to begin working full or part-time, Florida has systems in place to help you find a job that is a good fit for you. The Florida Retirement System places special focus on helping interested seniors with reemployment. One important caveat is that in some cases reemployment may affect your disability pension, so be sure to research this carefully before getting a job.
  5. Warm Weather May Improve Health - Relocation to a warmer climate has long been considered a good option for those with physical difficulties. While you shouldn't expect your disability to be cured by sunny days, you certainly won't have to worry about slipping on ice or having to shovel snow. Warm weather will inspire you to be more active and spend more time in the fresh air. Studies have even shown that warm weather is better for your heart, lungs, and memory.
