Climate, Weather, and Allergens
Sitting so near the center of the country, Kansas City sees a broad range of weather. If extreme heat and extreme cold get your blood pumping, this is the place for you, as the absence of any large bodies of water to regulate the climate means a lot of variety in day-to-day weather conditions. If, on the other hand, you prefer one extreme or the other, or something a bit more moderate, Kansas City might not be the ideal choice.

As for allergens, the city recently made number 38 on a list of the worst 100 cities in the United States for allergies, based on factors including average pollen count and allergy medicine consumption, so if ragweed sends you into nonstop sneezing fits, you’ll want to stay on top of your antihistamine of choice.

Assisted Living Options in Kansas City
Kansas City has a wide range of assisted living options, with more than 65 communities within or near the city limits. You can trust that there’s a community with the neighborhood, price range, or feature set you desire to be had, so long as you’re willing to compromise (or have no need to).

Expenses
For the budget-conscious, there’s good news, as assisted living costs in Kansas City start at a remarkably low $1,681 per month. That price includes room and board, meals and transportation at most of the area’s communities. Depending on the number and types of amenities offered at each community, average monthly prices can rise up to about $4,200.

The overall cost of living in Kansas City mirrors the cost of assisted living there. In other words, most residents can get by quite cheaply and comfortably. Movies, food, and fuel are about as cheap as you can hope for them to be in a major U.S. city, making this an excellent retirement choice for the budget-limited senior who nonetheless prefers the convenience of an urban environment.

Neighborhoods
Assisted living communities can be found throughout Kansas City, with a neighborhood to match a variety of lifestyle preferences. For those who prefer to stay close to the pulse of the city and don’t mind living among a younger crowd, Rever Market makes an excellent place to call home, and is host to the Midwest’s largest farmer’s market, among other attractions.

Many assisted living communities are found in the Westside neighborhood, which is defined by diversity of race, culture, architecture, and age of residents. For a more suburban neighborhood and older homes, Brookside has more of a small-town feel, with easy access to the city’s urban center.

Getting around
Most assisted living communities in Kansas offer residents some type of transportation. In addition, seniors can avail themselves of the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority’s regional bus services, or take advantage of one of countless for-profit and not-for-profit transportation services in the area.

Healthcare
Kansas City may not be a mecca of modern healthcare innovation or best-in-the-nation hospitals like some other popular retirement destinations, but its healthcare industry does maintain a respectable reputation. Seniors in Kansas City can expect quality care during any visits or stays at area medical facilities.

These include St. Luke’s Hospital on the Missouri side of the border, or the University of Kansas Hospital on the Kansas side, both nationally ranked for a number of specialties. The smaller Olathe Medical Center has also been recognized as a regionally ranked facility.

Local Attractions
Kansas City has enough attractions to keep any senior busy every day. Some of the city’s assisted living communities organize group outings to local attractions such as the National World War I Museum and Memorial, or the Kansas City Zoo. Able-bodied assisted living residents in Kansas City and their visiting loved ones will have no shortage of parks, museums, exhibits, markets, and entertainment venues to keep explore.
