    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Shawnee

    The city of Shawnee, Kansas is located in Johnson County and is home to over 65,000 residents. Roughly 12.2 percent of this population are aged 65 and older, and may be in need of assistance with daily tasks and activities.

    The term adult care homes (ACHs) is used to refer to communities that provide this type of care, including assisted living facilities (ALFs) and residential health care facilities, both of which are licensed and governed by the Secretary of Aging and Disability Services. In Shawnee, there are currently three ACHs for seniors to choose from, as well as an additional 35 in surrounding  communities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Shawnee

    • Shawnee has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's 50 Plus Program, an organization that works to foster a healthy community by providing recreation and leisure opportunities for active adults, as well as a senior center.
    • While many Kansas cities are considered quite affordable for seniors, Shawnee is more expensive, particularly in terms of housing and health costs. Based on the U.S. national average of 100, the cost of living in Shawnee is rated 112.8.
    • Shawnee is considered quite safe, especially compared to the Kansas City metropolitan area as a whole. Violent crime is rated 15.4 out of 100, with 100 representing high crime, compared to the metro's score of 29.1. Property crime in Shawnee is a bit higher at a rating of 27.3, though still much lower than the 42.9 the area receives.
    • Winters in Shawnee can be chilly, though they're relatively mild, with only around 16 inches of snowfall expected. However, summer temperatures climb to the high-80s, and this hot, muggy weather may be uncomfortable for seniors.
    • The Shawnee area is served by Kansas City Regional Transit (RideKC). In addition to its fixed-route service, the company offers the RideKC Freedom transportation service for older adults, which now has an app that seniors can download for on-demand, same-day service. Another option is Shawnee CityRide, which provides door-to-door transportation  for residents 65 years of age or older.
    • Shawnee has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals located in Kansas City (University of Kansas Hospital) and Overland Park (MISH Hospital and Clinics).

      It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Shawnee and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

      Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Shawnee

      Across the state of Kansas, including Shawnee, KanCare, part of the state's Medicaid waiver programs, pays for care services in an ALF to help reduce the financial burden assisted living services can place on seniors. Additionally, the Frail Elderly (FE) waiver can help seniors with the cost of certain care services.

      More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

      • Life Insurance Policy
      • Long-Term Care Insurance
      • Reverse Mortgage
