America’s aging population has led to a variety of businesses centered around senior care. Adult daycare services is one of the newest of these options. Because adult daycares provide no medical services, states take widely varied approaches to regulation and licensing. Some require multiple licenses and permits and have local-level regulation as well – while others require little to no licensing. However, the national trend is toward protecting the welfare of seniors using government agencies at all levels.
Jacksonville, Florida is the physically largest city in the nation. Luckily, its regulatory authority doesn’t sprawl as wide as the city itself. Jacksonville residents can expect a lot of licensing from the state, but not too much from the city. Still, food and other health-related businesses must meet local standards and require licenses and permits. Jacksonville remains one of Florida and the East Coast's largest ports. The city is a center of international trade and is the largest point of entry for vehicle imports. However, Jacksonville is not a one-industry town and also contains distribution, financial services, biomedical technology, consumer goods, information services, manufacturing, and insurance.
