Welcome to Cypress Creek, Sun City Center’s premier senior living residence!

Being privately owned and family operated, the rich heritage of Cypress Creek Assisted Living Residence is founded upon enhancing the quality of life through a family-focused model and personalized care.

Since 1977, the Biggins family has cared for those advancing in age at the original location in Palmetto. Recognizing the need for additional services in the Sun City Center area, Cypress Creek ALR was opened in 1999, growing to a 110-bed capacity. With the completion of the Legacy at Cypress Creek, Cypress Creek ALR is one of the largest privately-owned assisted living residences in the state of Florida having expanded to 140 beds and a spacious event center.

The compassionate staff, the experienced leadership team, and the unique design of the communities at Cypress Creek Assisted Living Residence and The Legacy at Cypress Creek have been strategically intended and prepared to encourage an active and fulfilling lifestyle with peace of mind for each resident. Divided into personalized neighborhoods with high staff-to-resident ratios, our living spaces provide a sense of community in an environment that does not overwhelm and has been purposed to accommodate individualized needs through all stages of advancing age, including memory care.

Cypress Creek’s leadership, with 50+ years of experience collectively, brings a wealth of knowledge to guide residents and their families during this season of life. Treating every resident with dignity and respect is at the heart of the Cypress Creek Assisted Living Residence

Come see the difference…Come live with us!

Neglected and abandoned, Champ miraculously found his way to Cypress Creek Assisted Living Residence. After hearing reports of an injured dog on the property, Jim Biggins, the owner of Cypress Creek, transported the dog to a local veterinary hospital where he received the medical care needed and made a full recovery. It was decided that this little champion would receive the name Champ and remain part of the Cypress Creek ALR family. Champ underwent extensive training to become part of the team.

Residents, families, friends, and staff of Cypress Creek ALR hold Champ dear and enjoy his visits each day. He is well-known throughout the Cypress Creek Business Community, and all who enter the doors of Cypress Creek ALR look for our champion.

We invite you to come and meet Champ…Come meet our team!

“When someone mentions Cypress Creek, I think of the home-like and comfortable environment that strikes you as the door opens into the beautiful lobby.  As time goes on, you discover the many hands of: Administration: directors, nurses, aids, cooks, housekeeping and maintenance, extended to residents as well as to their families. Having my loved one here gives me the assurance that he is well taken care of and that I will be contacted if anything of concern is noted.  The proof of the excellency of this facility is that my loved one, who has been a resident for two years feels safe, calm and contented.”
