Horizon Bay LutzHorizon Bay Lutz offers Independent Living and Assisted Living services for seniors.

Just north of Tampa in Lutz, Horizon Bay Vibrant Retirement Living is situated on five acres and surrounded by wildlife, trees and ponds. We are located off Nebraska Avenue (Hwy 41), about a mile north of Bearss Avenue, across the street from Publix and behind the River of Life church. Our neighbors are a farm with horses and an organic vegetable garden. Birds, rabbits and butterflies are frequent visitors.

Our two-story building consists of 85 apartment homes, all with high ceilings, 6-foot windows, full kitchens and walk-in showers. Three activity rooms, a library, billiards room, and beauty and barber shop are conveniently located in the building. Outside, a walking path circles half of the property.

Residents especially appreciate our all-the-time dining. We offer restaurant-style dining with no set meal times or assigned seating. Residents can order from a menu with multiple options that are always changing. Outside dining is also available on our large, screened patio. Delicious food, regional cuisine and courteous service are just some of the ingredients that make our meals even tastier.

What is an Independent Living Community?

Independent living can best be described as communal living, senior citizen housing option which provides supportive services such as meals, transportation, scheduled recreational activities and a variety of concierge services.

An independent living community may be a good option if:

  • Only minor assistance is needed with activities of daily living
  • You, or a loved one, want a place to live that requires little or no home maintenance and yard work
  • You, or a loved one, want to socialize with your peers and broaden your social network
  • You, or a loved one, want to enjoy activities and meals in the company of others

What is an Assisted Living Community?

An Assisted Living community assists residents with activities of daily living and basic care support in a homelike or apartment setting. Residents receive three meals a day, recreational and social activities, housekeeping, linen service, apartment maintenance and transportation.

Trained caregivers provide attention and assistance with medication management, bathing, dressing and cooking 24-hours a day. In addition, staff will coordinate services with outside healthcare providers and monitor residents to ensure they are healthy.

An Assisted living community may be a good option if:

  • Hands on assistance from a nurse or care associate is needed
  • You, or a loved one, need help with activities of daily living
  • You, or a loved one, need help with medication management
  • Your doctor, or your loved ones doctor, feels it is no longer safe for you to live alone
