    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lawrence

    Lawrence is the sixth largest city in Kansas with a population of 92,611, and it is home to both the University of Kansas and Haskell Indian Nations University.  There are 10 local assisted living communities in Lawrence, which are all regulated by the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services.  Aging citizens in Kansas's assisted living communities enjoy room and board, around-the-clock staff response in case of an emergency and help with activities of daily living (ADLs). Typical ADLs include personal care, dressing, and transportation for medical visits, shopping trips and other errands.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lawrence

    • Weather in Lawrence can change fast, sometimes going from snow to heat in a single day. Winter lows reach 18 degrees Fahrenheit here. In the summertime, highs rarely get above 89 degrees, which makes it easy for seniors to enjoy outdoor activities regularly.

    • Cost of living in Lawrence tracks very close to national averages. Health care, for example, costs about 97 percent the national average, while the cost of utilities and transportation are just about exactly on the median for the rest of the country.

    • Kansas imposes a tax of between 2.9 and 5.2 percent on most working income. SSI and most retirement income is exempt, which is good for seniors living on their investments. Sales tax has steadily increased in Kansas as the income tax rates have dropped, resulting in somewhat higher costs for gasoline and groceries than in past years.  

    • Crime rates in Lawrence are somewhat higher than the national average. Serious crimes, especially in violent categories that are of special concern to active seniors who spend their days outside of the community, remain about 10 percent lower, however.

    • Lawrence Transit offers fixed-route bus service around the city of Lawrence and into the surrounding areas. Riders over age 60 qualify for half off the regular fare with an ID.

    • The Lawrence area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lawrence Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
