What to Consider About Assisted Living in Andover

Nestled in Butler County, Kansas, lies Andover, a small city with 12,745 residents. Seniors can explore one of the city's six parks, participate in community events like Greater Andover Days or learn interesting facts at the Andover Historical Museum. After a day of fun, many seniors head home to one of Andover's four assisted living facilities or one of the additional 19 communities located near the city. These facilities provide a safe, welcoming environment for seniors by meeting or exceeding guidelines from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Andover

  • Temperatures typically range from the 20s to 80s in Andover, but sometimes they drop to single digits in winter and rise to triple during summer. Seniors who like outdoor activities may prefer the spring and fall months, as this is when temperatures often sit between the 50s to 70s.

  • Andover is safer than more than 4 out of 10 U.S. cities. It has a crime index of 42 on a 100-point scale, and most crimes involve property damage rather than violent incidents. There is a 1 in 263 chance of being a crime victim in Kansas but only a 1 in 865 chance in Andover.

  • Transportation options are limited in Andover, but residents can use the The Butler County Transit Program run by the Butler County Department on Aging. Reservations for rides are accepted Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and noon. The company recommends scheduling your ride at least 24 hours ahead of time.

  • Andover has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Wichita, Kansas.

  • Andover seniors spend less on housing, health, groceries and utilities than the national average for other U.S. cities. However, on average, it has a higher cost of living than Kansas as a whole.

  • Low-income seniors receive property tax relief through the SAFESR program. This program offers a rebate covering 75 percent of qualifying personal property expenses paid each year. Also, Social Security benefits aren't taxed for seniors who earn $75,000 per year or less.

Paying for Assisted Living in Andover

Assisted Living costs in Andover start around $4,500 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of assisted living is $4,000 per month, according to the latest figures from Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey.
