    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lees Summit

    In 2011, a study by Sperling's Best Places ranked Lee's Summit ninth on a list of the Best U.S. Cities for Seniors. According to its authors, the study considered factors including health care, transportation and the environment when determining its ranking.

    For seniors who are considering moving into an assisted living community in the Lee's Summit area, several options are available, including four within the city limits and 31 more in nearby towns such as Grandview, Blue Spring and Belton.  The state of Missouri licenses these communities as assisted living facilities (ALFs) and residential care facilities (RCFs).  While they provide similar services, RCFs are for residents who can evacuate in an emergency without assistance, while ALFs are for residents who may require help to reach safety. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lees Summit

    • Lee's Summit usually has mild winters; however, seniors who choose to live here should also be prepared for hot, humid summers that have an average high temperature of 88 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • While the overall cost of living in Lee's Summit is about 6 percent above the national average, much of the difference is due to the price of housing. Seniors living in assisted living communities can expect to save money in some categories. Groceries, for instance, are 7.1 percent cheaper than the national average.

    • Tax-savvy retirees should bear in mind that in Missouri, all types of retirement income, including Social Security retirement benefits, 401(k) withdrawals and pensions, may be subject to a full or partial state tax.

    • Lee's Summit offers a variety of local cultural attractions of interest to seniors. For example, Lee's Summit Arts Council helps organize and coordinate ongoing art programming for all ages. History buffs can explore the Lee's Summit History Museum, while those who prefer live entertainment can catch a show at the city's Legacy Park Amphitheater
    • The Lee's Summit area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lee's Summit Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Lee's Summit has an array of community resources for seniors, including the local AARP, an organization that offers practical advice and activities, as well as one senior center.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Lees Summit

    Unlike many states, Missouri doesn't have a Medicaid waiver program that helps offset the costs of assisted living services. Instead, the state helps eligible seniors pay for personal care services in ALFS and RCFS as part of its Medicaid State Plan Personal Care authority. The state also has an Optional State Supplement (OSS) which some assisted living residents may qualify for.
