    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Farmington

    Voted one of the top 100 small towns in 2015, Farmington provides a peaceful home for nearly 19,000 residents, more than 14% of whom are seniors at least 65 years old. As they age, many residents decide to remain in the Farmington area, which was established more than 200 years ago.

    There are a few assisted living facilities in Farmington for seniors who want to age in their hometown, plus more than 20 additional facilities in nearby cities. The Department of Health and Senior Services regularly evaluates the performance of these facilities so that elderly residents receive appropriate care.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Farmington

    • The Farmington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Parkland Health Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Temperatures typically range from 25 to 88 degrees in Farmington, though sometimes temperatures hit single digits or the high 90s. Seniors sensitive to extreme temperatures may want to consider assisted living communities where the rooms have individual thermostats.
    • Farmington is safer than just 11% of other U.S. cities. However, most of the city's crimes involve property damage rather than violent crimes, so seniors can safely explore their community. On average, Missourians are more than twice as likely to experience violence in other parts of the state than in Farmington.
    • Golden-agers enjoy line dancing, card games and dominoes, and exercise classes at the Farmington OAKS Senior Center. The senior center also hosts several senior-friendly groups, including the Silver Bells Red Hat group and the Mineral Area Woodcarvers. Seniors seeking other intellectual or cultural activities can participate in programs at the local library or visit its senior outreach center.
    • The Southeast Missouri Transportation Service runs through Farmington from Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Seniors must schedule a ride in advance, and no fare is required for riders over the age of 60.
    • Farmington has a score of 81.6 on a 100-point cost of living scale, making it more affordable than the U.S. average and Missouri average. Housing and transportation cost significantly less in Farmington than other parts of Missouri, but seniors with medical concerns should consider that health expenses are slightly higher.
