    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Olathe

    "Olathe" is the Shawnee word for "beautiful," and the modern city of that name does its best to live up to the moniker. This friendly city of 135,000 neighbors has 45 assisted living communities that welcome seniors who need help with some activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing and dressing. These properties are all regulated at the state level by the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services, which conducts inspections to ensure good hygiene, health and safety and personal care standards are observed.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Olathe

    • Olathe has highly variable weather, depending on the season. Summer highs reach 89 degrees Fahrenheit here, while winter lows can dip down to 20 degrees in December. The area gets around 40 inches of rain a year, with snow common in the colder months and into spring. Dry winds can be an issue for seniors with asthma or COPD.

    • The cost of living in Olathe is somewhat higher than elsewhere in the nation. Most of that is in housing and utility costs, however. Areas that affect seniors the most actually tend to be cheaper in Olathe. Groceries here cost about two percent less than average, for instance, while health care costs are four percent lower.

    • Kansas charges between 2.9 percent and 5.2 percent tax on most income. Income from SSI and some retirement plans may be exempt, however, so it's a good idea to check with a professional for advice before breaking an IRA or CD. Sales tax can be somewhat high for some categories of goods including luxury items and gasoline.

    • Crime in Olathe is significantly lower than the national average. Violent and property crimes have been in steep decline in the city since 2002, when the numbers were close to national rates. 

    • Seniors who depend on public transportation can get around Olathe on TheJo, which operates fixed bus routes in and around Johnson County. Seniors over 60 qualify for discount fares with an approved ID, which can be obtained from the transit authority's office in town.

    • The Olathe area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Olathe Health Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
