6280 Central Ave,
St. Petersburg, FL


Situated near St. Pete Beach, Wentworth Central Ave is a quaint, suburban senior living community located near John’s Pass, The Pier of St. Pete and the Salvador Dali Museum as well as local hospitals including Palm’s of Pasadena, Bayfront Hospital, St. Anthony’s Hospital and Tampa General Hospital. Wake up every day in a safe, intentionally designed living space. We tend to the cooking, housekeeping and home maintenance so you can participate in social, cultural and exercise programs including happy hours, walking club and jewelry making. Choose from a menu of seasonal, nutritious chef-prepared dishes at our Bistro and beautiful dining room.

Enjoy discreet, supportive care, a maintenance-free lifestyle including scheduled transportation, and boutique amenities. Spend every day living fully and experiencing greater well-being.


Our Philosophy

We believe a thoughtfully designed environment filled with good neighbors and a caring staff, along with nutritious food, accessible exercise programs and opportunities to connect and engage every day, are the right combination for optimal living.  

For older people living alone, these important elements can become harder to maintain – making home a challenging, unsafe, even lonely place to be.  

That’s why we offer a community for older people where living is easier, surroundings are safer – and together is better.

How we’re showing gratitude in August

For leaving our minds better than you found them – thank you, teachers.

Teachers influence the future by awakening curiosity, confidence and creativity, and opening our minds to possibilities. As educators head back to the classroom this month, we’re showing our gratitude by supporting their essential work and sharing personal stories of those who made a difference in our lives.

Come see how we’re celebrating teachers in August at one of our featured events!

My parents moved to Wentworth in 2014. My father has since passed but his favorite thing to do was to plant veggies in the earthbox they had on their patio while getting some fresh air.Recently my mother celebrated her 94th birthday the same... weekend as Mother’s Day. I figured it's about time I write a review about where my mom calls home. If I have forgotten someone or a department I apologize.Beth in nursing took the time to go over my mom’s medication list yesterday. Under the previous ownership no one had ever done that before.Cassandra has called me several times on my mom’s behalf even when I did not expect an update.I cannot say enough good things about all of the nursing staff. If not for them my nights would be sleepless worrying about my mom.Janine and Barb keep the residents very busy with engaging activities. I always see the residents smiling when I walk through the facility. I even enjoy spending time with them during the various activities they have planned throughout the day. My mom has her favorite activities she anticipates attending every week.Jesse and the kitchen staff ensure the residents have a great variety of tasty, healthy, and good quality meals. Jesse has made a special point to see that my mom eats every meal especially breakfast since she is not a morning person. The staff make me aware of anytime she does not eat or does not go down to the dining room. If they notice my mom did not go to the dining room they make sure to check on her.Housekeeping is also great. I visit my mom several times a week and every time her room and the facility are very clean. The team also makes sure that her laundry is done and that she has everything she needs.Raquel does an amazing job of keeping me updated on my mom’s health. Recently mom had a rough weekend and Raquel called me on Monday to give me an update.The front desk/reception team is sure to make everyone feel welcome and ensure that everyone follows the COVID-19 guidelines. If I ever need anything the front desk staff go above and beyond to assist me.Recently the facility got a new hair stylist. While the hair salon was under renovation the stylist made a huge effort to go to the resident’s room to provide hair services. My mom looks forward to seeing the hair stylist every few weeks.You might be aware that a change in ownership recently took place. Before the change in ownership the facility was good, now it is great. The new Executive Director Tracey keeps family members informed of all the events, changes, and COVID-19. She really takes the time to make sure family members are kept informed and she truly cares about the residents and staff. Never before had any director reached out to me or kept me updated on anything. A lot of money was also spent within the facility to update furnishings, art work, etc.This new ownership and staff go well above and beyond what is expected of them to make sure the residents are safe and happy. The facility is a great size and not overwhelming for the residents. Additionally, the staff to resident ratio is exceptional.Keep up the great work Wentworth!read more

Wentworth Central Avenue has the greatest square footage in their Studio & 1 bedroom apartments! I’m shocked and pleased to see all Mom’s items will fit nicely in her Assisted Living apartment. Tour today!

I absolutely love Wentworth Central Avenue! From the time you walk into the door the receptionist makes you feel at home. She’s always smiling and making sure everyone gets where they need to go. The DHW and RCD are the best dynamic duo. They both... care greatly about the care of the residents. The caregivers and Med techs on each shift are very compassionate and irreplaceable. They all treat each and every resident in the facility like family. The Maintnence and House keeping Crew are even known in the facility on a first name basis! Unheard of right? Wentworth is family oriented nothing bad to say. The sales department is awesome very very reliable, flexible with tour times, and more

Wentworth Central Avenue is a great place to work! It’s a blessing to get to be a part of a wonderful team that truly cares about the residents that live here. I love my job as the Resident Experience Director!

I have seen my sister's health and welfare improve considerably since being a resident at Wentworth one the past 1 1/3 year, This is due to the amazing care she receives from the Activities Staff that creates games & activities that makes life... interesting. From exercise class to jewelery making to learning new games to play (such as Bocce, Farkle, etc), her daily life improved. Barb & Janine make sure she is busy and show interest in her well being. She now assists other residents and feels needed as a member of her community. A winning combination!read more

Barb Wolford is a dedicated member of the activities department. She gets to know the residents, listens to their concerns & truly cares about them. We are so grateful she's there for our loved one in assisted living and believe she was essential in... helping her make the transition from independent living to assisted living.The activities department at Wentworth Central Avenue is fabulous with plenty of interesting things for our loved one to do to keep occupied and stay healthy and engaged. Jeanine, as the director is very creative and always coming up with new ideas. We're so appreciative of this.Another excellent employee is Drew who drives the van & takes patients to appts or on group trips to a restaurant or shopping. He gets to know the residents and engages with them and they love getting out & more
Back in 2018, my mother chose this place to live. She liked the idea of everyday meal making, laundry and cleaning done for her and of all the places she visited, she like this one the best. Here we are four years later and Mom is still happy. In... any assisted living community, there is always room for improvement, but overall, the meals are good, the staff is helpful, the building is bright and modern and management seems genuinely interested in the welfare of the residents. We like more
