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.

  • 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.
