What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lenexa

The Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services licenses assisted living facilities in Lenexa and the rest of the state, promoting a high standard of care for all residents. This department publishes information on the rules all facilities in Kansas follow related to housing, staffing and service planning, and it conducts background checks on all prospective staff members.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lenexa

 

  • Seniors in Lenexa can obtain transportation services through two subsidized transportation services, including the RideKC Taxi voucher program and the Johnson County Transit Special Edition. These programs are open to Johnson County residents aged 65 and over and can help qualified individuals attend errands and medical appointments, supplementing what they obtain through assisted living.
  • The number of doctors per capita in Lenexa averages 365 versus the national norm of 210, which may promote access to prompt medical care for seniors. Additionally, numerous hospitals are within easy driving distance, including Overland Park Regional Medical Center and AdventHealth Shawnee Mission, and many assisted living facilities have on-call physicians who provide routine care.
  • On a 100-point cost of living index based on living costs nationwide, Lenexa scores 105.7. While this exceeds the national norm by 5.7%, it’s nearly 23 percentage points higher than the Kansas median and may be a concern for those with limited resources. Fortunately, programs such as the Kansas Frail Elderly Waiver Program are available to qualified seniors and can help cover assisted living expenses.
  • Seniors in Kansas don’t pay state income taxes on their public pension incomes, and those whose annual adjusted gross income is $75,000 or less don’t pay state taxes on their Social Security benefits. This may help some seniors afford assisted living costs in Lenexa.
  • Lenexa scores 12.1 for violent crime on a 100-point crime index, which is well below the national score of 22.7 and indicates that violent offenses are relatively rare in this city. Property crime is a little more common, earning the city a score of 27.1, but this is still modest compared to the national score of 35.4. For seniors who are concerned about crime, moving to assisted living may be an attractive alternative to living alone.
  • Lenexa is one of the cooler places to live in Kansas, with year-round temperatures ranging from 20 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, the city gets about 41 inches of rain and 16 inches of snow. To help residents stay comfortable throughout the year, many assisted living facilities provide individual climate controls in residents’ apartments.
