What to Consider About Assisted Living in Aurora

Aurora, Mo., located in Lawrence County, is considered by locals as "The Summit City of the Ozarks" and has a population of 7,450. The town offers two assisted living facilities (ALFs) and 13 nearby to seniors. Primary responsibilities include providing aid with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as grooming and bathing, outdoor recreation and medication management. In Aurora,  and all of Missouri, each facility is licensed as either an assisted living or residential care facility (RCF) by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). The DHSS is also responsible for monitoring and regulating all facilities, acting as an independent advocate for senior residents.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Aurora

  • Aurora has elevated property and violent crime rates (between 75 to 95 percent higher) when compared to the national average.

  • Chilly winter temperatures that range between 34 to 48 degrees and drop as low as 23 degrees can be unpleasant for seniors. Alternatively, summers are often mild with temperatures ranging from 65 to 80 degrees with high rainfall.

  • The air quality in Aurora is considered to be 21 percent better than the national average. Pollution levels are also significantly lower, 73 percent better than the national average, which makes it a suitable environment for residents with respiratory problems.

  • The cost of living in Aurora is considered relatively cheap with a rating of 84 compared to a state average of 90 and a national average of 100. While cheaper, seniors often pay more on groceries and health care while less on utilities and housing.

  • The Aurora area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mercy Hospital Aurora, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Aurora has an array of community resources for seniors, including the SeniorAge Area Agency on Aging, an organization that provides nutrition programs, community services, senior advocacy and Medicare counseling.
