What to Consider About Assisted Living in Manhattan

Known as the Little Apple, Manhattan stretches across 18 square miles of Kansas' picturesque Flint Hills region. This city has made Livability's top 20 best places to live in America two years in a row and is becoming a popular destination for seniors, who currently make up over 8% of its 55,000-resident population.

Manhattan has assisted living facilities available within the city and its surrounding areas to support those seniors who need assistance with daily tasks. These facilities are licensed by the Secretary of Aging and Disability Services, and include both assisted living facilities (ALFs) and residential health care facilities. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Manhattan

  • Manhattan has a variety of arts and culture opportunities for seniors to enjoy. The city is home to a number of historic sites, attractions and entertainment venues, including the Manhattan Arts Center, Riley County Historical Museum and historic downtown Manhattan.
  • While the cost of living in Manhattan is lower than the average U.S. city, at an index rating of 94, it is higher than the Kansas state average of 90. This may be something for seniors living on a  fixed income to consider when budgeting for the cost of an ACH.
  • Violent crime rates in Manhattan are low, which may be reassuring to senior in ACHs. On a scale to 100, the city scores 12.4, which falls below both the U.S. national average of 22.7 and statewide average of 23.6.
  • The aTa Bus serves communities across the Flint Hills area, including Manhattan. Seniors are eligible for a half-fare discount on its fixed-route services. The city also offers a taxi coupon program to ensure low-income seniors have access to the transportation they need.
  • The Manhattan area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors who enjoy time outdoors can enjoy a pleasant climate throughout the year. While winters can get a bit cold, they are relatively mild with little snow. Summers are warm and sunny, and the city receives an overall comfort index score of 7.2 out of 10.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Manhattan

As the cost of assisted living can often place a heavy burden on seniors, the state of Kansas offers financial aid through its KanCare Medicaid waiver programs. These programs cover the cost of services in an ALF, and sometimes the entire living cost. Manhattan seniors can also apply for the state's Frail Elderly (FE) waiver program to receive additional supplementation.

Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Kansas page.
