    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kansas City

    Kansas City, KS, is the third largest city in Kansas with a population of 149,755 and is commonly referred to as "KCK" to differentiate it from Kansas City, Missouri. There are 63 assisted living communities in Kansas City, where seniors can live as independently as possible with access to 24-hour assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). These include dressing, personal care and sometimes transportation off-site for medical appointments. The state regulates its assisted living properties through the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services, which monitors health and safety standards.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kansas City

    • Kansas City's weather can be fickle. Winter lows here can get down to a brisk 18 degrees Fahrenheit in December and January, while summer days rise as high as 89 degrees. Annually, Kansas City gets about 34 inches of rain, which can circulate pollen in spring. This might be an issue for seniors with asthma or allergies.

    • Kansas City's cost of living is about 19 percent lower than the national average. However, the average cost of groceries and health care is slightly higher than the state's average, which might make it difficult for seniors to find affordable options.

    • Kansas has spent years slowly lowering its income tax to the current range of 2.9 to 5.2 percent. However, SSI and many forms of retirement income are not subject to state-level taxation. As income taxes have gone down, sales taxes have risen somewhat, including the prices of goods many aging citizens depend on such as nutritional supplements and durable medical goods.

    • The crime rate in Kansas City is about double the national average. The silver lining is that rates used to be far higher still; crime has dropped by 40 percent since 2002. 

    • The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) operates 89 bus routes around the seven counties that the city sprawls into on both sides of the border. Seniors ride at a discount, but a valid ID must be presented at the time you pay your fare.

    • The Kansas City area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Luke's Hospital of Kansas City, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Kansas City
