welcome hometo our Masonic Family in Florida
A tradition of caring
At the Masonic Home of Florida, we’ve reinvented the art of graceful living. Masons and their wives/widows thrive in an atmosphere of home charm, yet we also provide the most comprehensive health care regimens available in Florida today. Geriatric physicians and specialists design personal care programs with the assistance of physical and occupational therapists, audiologists, podiatrists, speech therapists, ophthalmologists, dentists and psychosocial counselors. Emphasis is placed on independence to preserve self reliance and a healthy self esteem. Even day to day routines have been generously peppered with choices to our residents which fosters a greater control over their daily lives.
Our waterfront location has been owned and operated by the Grand Lodge of Florida since the early 1900’s and shares a century old tradition with the City of St. Petersburg. The Home was originally set aside for children slowly turning over to the needs of senior Masons and their wives/widows as aging demographics changed. A series of building expansions beginning in 1973 brought us to the present 150,000 square foot Home which can accommodate up to 187 Residents in a state-of-the-art setting. There are gracious lobbies, an elegant dining room overlooking the grounds and water, a 5,000 volume library, billiards and activities rooms, gift shop, community kitchenettes and lounges, a chapel, waterside pavilion and fishing pier plus a host of other amenities which make the Masonic Home one of the premiere facilities of its kind in Pinellas County. Recently, the City of St. Petersburg presented The Masonic Home a Mayors First Place Award for Building and Grounds Beautification.
