What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ellisville

Ellisville has been recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation as "Tree City USA" for 31 consecutive years, and it has over 230 acres of parkland, which makes it a good option for seniors who enjoy outdoor activities. Seniors make up the fourth-largest demographic group in this city, accounting for roughly 20 percent of the city's 10,000-person population. There are 31 assisted living options for local seniors to choose from, including four within the Ellisville city limits.

In Ellisville, as in all of Missouri, assisted living facilities may also be called assisted living residences or personal care homes, and they accommodate those who need assistance with the activities of daily living. Assisted living facilities in Missouri are licensed by the Department of Aging.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ellisville

  • Ellisville's air quality is subpar, which may affect the quality of life of seniors with respiratory conditions like asthma and COPD. According to the American Lung Association, St. Louis County's ozone pollution levels are high, with the county receiving an F for this type of pollution. The region's short-term particle pollution levels are moderate, receiving a C. 
  • Ellisville's cost of living is roughly 20 percent higher than state and national averages, primarily due to the city's high cost of housing. However, seniors may expect to spend a little less on groceries, utilities and healthcare expenses than they would elsewhere in the nation, which may offset mortgage and rent costs. 
  • Ellisville has hot, muggy summers and cold winters. July, the warmest month of the year, has highs near 90 and lows around 70. January, the chilliest month of the year, has highs in the low-40s and lows in the 20s. This may be a consideration for seniors who enjoy participating in outdoor activities throughout the year. 
  • Ellisville is rated to be safer than 50 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes and 58 percent of Missouri cities of all sizes. When compared to similarly sized cities, Ellisville's crime rate is considerably lower than average, which may provide peace of mind for seniors who are retiring to the area.
  • While Ellisville seniors pay state income tax on all retirement income, they may claim deductions on their Social Security benefits and public pensions. The state's sales tax rate is higher than average, but property taxes are relatively low. 
  • Ellisville has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Ballwin.
