What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kearney

Kearney, Missouri, is one of the fastest-growing cities in the state. Currently, it has about 10,000 residents, approximately 13% of whom are seniors. In some cases, these seniors may seek out assisted living when they need help with daily activities.  

In Kearney and in Missouri as a whole, assisted living facilities are for residents who require supervision by a physician and who are unable to evacuate the facility without help. Residential care facilities, another type of assisted living facilities in the state, are for seniors with less intensive care needs. Both types of facilities are licensed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Regulation and Licensure, Section for Long-Term Care Regulation. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kearney

  • Kearney is an expensive place to live, which may make it a poor option for seniors who have limited income and assets. Its overall cost of living is about 10% higher than the national average and roughly 20% higher than the statewide average.   
  • Summers in Kearney are warm with highs in the upper-80s, which is typical of Missouri. Winters are chilly with lows around 18 degrees. However, the city only receives 16 inches of snow per year on average, which is about 12 inches less than the national average. This may make it a good option for seniors who drive or rely on mobility aids.  
  • While Kearney's ozone pollution levels are fairly high, the city's particle pollution levels are relatively low. Seniors, especially those with conditions like COPD or asthma, may want to stay indoors on high ozone days
  • The Kearney area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Liberty.
