What to Consider About Assisted Living in Doniphan

Doniphan, Missouri, is home to the Current River Heritage Museum and the Tom Kennon Blacksmith Shop and Museum, both of which may be of interest to the city’s 454 seniors. Seniors who require assistance with their personal care needs can find support in one of the two assisted living facilities located within city limits. In Doniphan, and throughout Missouri, these facilities are also called residential care facilities and are licensed by the Missouri Department of Health, Division of Regulation and Licensure.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Doniphan

  • Missouri fully taxes retirement savings account income and private pensions, and partially taxes Social Security benefits and public pensions, something that could put a strain on Doniphan seniors with already restrictive budgets.
  • The Doniphan area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Ripley County Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The overall cost of living in Doniphan is 79.5, lower than both the Missouri average of 92.5 and the U.S. average of 100. Seniors can expect to pay less for transportation in the city, but groceries and healthcare are higher than the average at 101.7 and 113.9, respectively. This is something that seniors with chronic illnesses may want to keep in mind.
  • Crime rates are high in Doniphan, which may be a deterrent for safety-conscious seniors and their families. The city has a violent crime rate of 83.8 and a property crime rate of 95.3, both significantly higher than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively.
  • Doniphan’s air quality has a rating of 63 on a 100-point scale where higher numbers equate to better air quality, five points higher than the national average of 58. Seniors with respiratory illnesses may find that they breathe easier in this city than in others in the state or country.
  • Ripley County Transit offers the MO Rides transportation service for seniors through Medicaid for non-emergency errands. This service is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. On-demand service is available, however, long-distance trips within a 250-mile radius of Doniphan must be booked in advance. Senior transportation is also provided by the Council on Aging for medical appointments and other errands with local trips costing $7.00 and out-of-town trips costing $25.
