- 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.

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.
