    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Florissant

    Florissant is approximately a 25-minute drive from downtown St. Louis, making it an ideal location for seniors who want to live near Busch Stadium and the Gateway Arch without dealing with big-city crowds and a hefty cost of living. There are nine assisted living facilities in the Florissant area, four of which fall within city limits. The Department of Health and Senior Services regulates these and the rest of Missouri's assisted living facilities to ensure patients receive quality care.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Florissant

    • Florissant has multiple public transportation options that cover the city and pass through North County, West County and downtown St. Louis. Options include the MetroBus and MetroLink, both of which offer Senior Reduced Fare Permits. Elderly residents of Florissant can also request rides on one of Florissant’s two 25-passenger buses if they belong to a qualifying organization.

    • Florissant has a higher crime rate than nearly 55 percent of U.S. cities, but it has a significantly lower crime rate than many neighboring cities in North St. Louis County, including Kinloch, Ferguson and Hazelwood. Theft accounts for approximately seven out of 10 crime reports in Florissant, and assaults equal just 4 percent of the city’s crimes.

    • The cost of living is low for Florissant residents, with homes costing less than half the price of the U.S. median. Utility prices are slightly higher than the U.S. average, but Florissant residents generally have lower grocery and transportation costs than other parts of the country.

    • Seniors who appreciate changing seasons will enjoy Florissant's chilly autumns, snowy winters, rainy springs and sunny summers. Temperatures typically range from the mid-20s in the winter to high 80s in the summer, but sometimes they dip below 0 degrees Fahrenheit or soar above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

    • Florissant has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Bridgeton, Missouri.

    • St. Louis County, which includes Florissant, 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.
