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.

The DHSS is also responsible for monitoring and regulating all facilities, acting as an independent advocate for senior residents.
