Louise: "Addington Place of Lee's Summit was a smaller facility and I really liked it, but my mom didn't care for it. She thought it was a little too small, but I thought it was fine.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Grain Valley

The charming suburban city of Grain Valley, Missouri, gives seniors a peaceful community vibe, and its convenient location along Interstate 70 offers easy access to the rest of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. It is home to 2 assisted living facilities (ALF)and 14 others in nearby cities, including Blue Spring and Lee’s Summit. ALFs assist seniors with daily activities, such as meals and housekeeping. In Missouri, ALFs differ from residential care facilities; the latter accommodates residents who can find a path to safety unassisted. All ALFs and RCFs in Grain Valley, as in the rest of the state, are licensed by the Section for Long-Term Care Regulation of the Department of Health and Senior Services.
