Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Boonville
- Assisted living communities may take seniors on trips to some of the many in-town attractions, which include historic sites, museums and parks. Seniors who want to get some exercise can take advantage of the town’s aquatic center or 18-hole golf course.
- Boonville has an array of community resources for seniors, including Aging Best, an organization that provides Medicaid and Medicare counseling, legal services, transportation and other services for seniors, as well as one senior center.
- Seniors who are looking forward to a peaceful retirement may appreciate Boonville’s relatively low crime rate. Property crimes are more likely to occur than violent crimes, but they happen at lower rates than the state median.
- The Boonville area’s clean air may attract seniors who want to avoid smog. The Columbia-Moberly-Mexico metropolitan area has some of the cleanest air in the country, according to the American Lung Association. With such good air quality, seniors can spend plenty of time outdoors.
- Boonville has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Columbia.
- OATS Transit offers a curb-to-curb transportation service within Cooper County, but since rides need to be scheduled three to five business days in advance, it may not meet seniors’ needs. Boonville’s assisted living facilities may provide transportation to errands, medical appointments and other places that seniors need to go.
