Helen M. Sawyer Assisted Living Facility
Concerned with the lack of affordable services that would allow the elderly to “age in place” Miami-Dade County Public Housing and Community Development converted the public housing development Helen M. Sawyer Plaza into an assisted living facility (ALF).
This Facility provides low-income elderly residents with safe and comfortable private accommodations. The facility is licensed for 101 apartments, within an eight-story building covering 2.38 acres and is comprised of large studios and one-bedroom apartments.
It is not a nursing home and it does not hold a license to provide 24-hour nursing services. It is accessible to public transportation, is within walking distance of the Culmer Metrorail station and near local hospitals, major supermarkets, and shopping centers.
