About Us

The Wirick is a licensed, Adult Living Facility with a specialty license in Limited Mental Health and has provided quality care and accommodations for adult men and women in Saint Petersburg since 1987. Established as a retirement hotel and operated under the present ownership since 1977, we specialize in serving the mental health population of the Tampa Bay Area.  Well aware of their special needs, we are capable and experienced at fulfilling each in a family environment.

We are located downtown within walking distance of The Pier, North Shore Park and Pool, Vinoy Park, the Sunshine Senior Center, Tomlinson Adult Education complex, and the main bus depot at Williams Park.  Many free, sponsored activities are presented in Vinoy and Straub Parks, just 5 blocks away.  Also conveniently located are many restaurants, hospitals, and churches of all denominations. Lastly, there is an outpatient, Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) available across the street which is independently operated by several local psychiatrists.

Room accommodations are fully furnished and offered in both single and double occupancies each with its own private bathroom.  In addition, we do offer several private rooms with shared bathrooms for the  economy-minded resident.  We accept Optional State Supplement and Medicaid, and our base rate is predicated upon the current monthly recognized state rental rate.  Higher rates apply to private rooms, or additional services and health care overlays.
