I am in south Florida and looking for a facility here for my 52 year old mentally ill son on social security.

Hello there,

What kind of mental illness is your son dealing with? Is he currently seeing a doctor now? What are some of his symptoms and are you looking for a facility where he can live or just out patient treatment?

Hello,

I'm sorry for the delay. There was some kind of technical glitch and I was not seeing your response. Here are two assisted living facilities in South Florida who serve the needs of those with schizophrenia and also will take Social Security.

When you contact them, be sure to ask them any and all questions you may have and schedule a tour as well, if possible. I hope this helps you...it seems there are several viable options to meet the needs of your son.

I have asked for facuilities in south Florida. You did not answer my question. If you do not have that information, say so. Do not give me information about facilities 3 to 4 hours away from my home.

Hello again,

I thought that I had answered your question, since you requested facilities located in South Florida. Two of the facilities mentioned are in Tampa and the other in Clearwater. If you wanted a specific town, than you need to tell me that in your question. Otherwise I would have no way of knowing what you are wanting, unless you ask. I would be happy to find facilities closer to you. Which town do you live in specifically and I can see what is available in your actual town. How far would you be willing to drive?
