    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Liberty

    Liberty, located in Clay County, is a suburb of Kansas City. The town offers seniors two local assisted living facilities (ALFs) and 42 nearby. Each facility is regulated and licensed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. ALFs are licensed as either assisted living communities or residential care facilities (RCFs). Seniors with disabilities may prefer RCFs since they can accommodate patients who need assistance evacuating in case of emergency. Both types of facilities provide aid with medication management, outdoor recreations and activities of daily living (ADLs), with some even planning  tansportation to local attractions.
