What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chesterfield

In the quiet suburban city of Chesterfield, just west of St. Louis on the Missouri River, seniors make up more than 24 percent of the population. To make life easier and more comfortable for this population, the city has eight assisted living facilities within the city limits and 66 facilities in the nearby area. Chesterfield, as well as the rest of Missouri, officially recognizes these facilities as Assisted Living Facilities or Residential Care Facilities. They are licensed and regulated by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chesterfield

  • Chesterfield has an array of community resources for seniors, including the St. Louis County Older Resident Programs (CORP), an organization that transportation for medical visits and other serves as well as three senior centers.
  • St. Louis County, where Chesterfield is located, is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
  • Chesterfield has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in St. Louis.
  • Seniors living in Chesterfield may want to check each day's air quality before venturing outside. While the American Lung Association gives St. Louis County a passing grade for annual particle pollution, there are an above average amount of days with excessive ozone in the air. High levels of ozone can cause many respiratory and cardiovascular problems.
  • Chesterfield offers several public transportation options that can help seniors get around town and into the heart of St. Louis when needed. There are many MetroBus stations for routes 58, 58x, 258, and 91. The Spirit of St. Louis Airport is also in the city limits.
  • Senior residents in Chesterfield can expect cold winters and hot summers. Since temperatures typically reach an average low of 22 degrees in January, seniors should make sure to stay inside or wear appropriate clothing. They may also want to stay inside during extremely high temperatures in the summer.
