What to Consider About Assisted Living in Independence

Independence, Missouri is well-known for being the longtime home of Harry Truman, the 33rd president of the United States. Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) in Missouri are defined by the state as those premises which provide 24-hour care and services and help with Activities of Daily Living (ADL). These facilities are governed by the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services. Licensing requirements and policies can be viewed in detail on the DHSS website. Independence is home to five assisted living facilities, with another 31 in the nearby area.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Independence

  • The violent crime in Independence is 36.3 out of 100 (1 being the lowest), which is a little higher than the national average. Property crime is quite high at 70.4 compared to the national average at 38.1. Seniors may want to take extra precautions to secure their belongings.

  • Independence receives around 14 inches of snowfall a year, which can make it difficult for seniors with limited mobility to be active all year round. Independence enjoys warm summers averaging 89 degrees in July, and chilly winters with an average low of 21 degrees in January.

  • Seniors living in Independence experience a cost of living that is 16.1 percent lower than the national average. This might help seniors on a budget afford a facility with a higher monthly cost. 

  • Seniors with a severe respiratory illness or bronchial condition may have some difficulties in Jackson County. The American Lung Association gave this county a Particle Pollution 24-hour score of C. While this is a fair score, it may bother some seniors who are particularly sensitive.

  • The city of Independence offers lots of activities for individuals who love history. Seniors can follow in the footsteps of former president Harry Truman and visit his favorite soda fountain. Seniors might also enjoy learning about pioneer history and the Oregon Trail or exploring the city's many museums and historic sites.

  • The Independence area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Centerpoint Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
