What to Consider About Assisted Living in Newton

The city of Newton, Kansas, located about 25 miles north of Wichita, provides retired Americans with a suburban setting that’s close to all the big-city amenities. Seniors, aged 65 and over, make up nearly 18% of the city's population of about 19,000. Two assisted living communities in Newton and one in nearby Halstead provide residents with personal care and 24-hour support services to help with senior living.

The Department for Aging and Disability Services governs assisted living communities in Newton, as in all of Kansas. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Newton

  • Newton is a very desirable location for seniors on a tight budget. The overall cost of living here is about 7% less expensive than the state’s average and 17% lower than the national average. The greatest savings are found in housing, transportation and groceries.
  • The Newton area has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Harvey County Department on Aging, which provides services such as the grocery delivery Store-To-Door program while also managing the Newton Area Senior Center.
  • Hot and excessively humid summers make Newton a poor choice for seniors who prefer a dry, moderate climate. The average high in July is 92 degrees, and January’s low is 20 degrees.
  • Crime rates in Newton exceed the U.S. averages, which may be of concern for families considering placing loved ones in facilities here. A 33.4 violent crime rate (on a scale of 1 to 100) and 49.2 property crime rate are significantly higher than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively.
  • Kansas was ranked No. 3 on Kiplinger’s 10 Least Tax-Friendly States for Retirees in 2018. Newton seniors pay taxes on out-of-state pension plans as well as distributions from individual retirement accounts and 401(k) plans. Residents with a federal adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less are not taxed on Social Security benefits, but those above that threshold do pay taxes.
  • The Newton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Newton Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Newton

To help reduce the burden of paying for assisted living, Kansas offers seniors the Medicaid Frail Elderly (FE) waiver. This Home and Community Based Services program helps those who need a higher level of care choose an assisted living community instead. It does not cover room and board, but does cover care services recommended by the ALF's plan of care.

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

  • Reverse Mortgage
