What to Consider About Assisted Living in Neosho

Neosho, Missouri, is known as the Flower Box City because of the beautiful arrangements that adorn the town square and other neighborhoods. Among those who get to enjoy these gorgeous arrays are the 15% of the population who are over 65.  Some of these people reside in one of the four assisted living communities in the city. There are also 12 other facilities in the surrounding area. As in all of Missouri, The Department of Health and Senior Services is responsible for inspecting and licensing assisted living facilities (ALFs).

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Neosho

  • Summers in Neosho can be very hot and muggy, averaging about 90 degrees in July and August. This may be a consideration for seniors dealing with arthritis or other conditions where humidity is a factor. 
  • Public transportation is somewhat limited in Neosho, with OATS Transit and taxis being the most accessible ways to get around. OATS Transit requires 48 hours or more advance notification. Those looking into assisted living facilities may want to check what transportation services are provided by the specific community.
  • While the average violent crime rate is lower in Neosho than state and national averages, the property crime rate is significantly higher. Seniors considering an assisted living community should check to see what security facilities have in place to avoid property crimes. 
  • The cost of living in Neosho is less than the average for both Missouri and the nation, so affordability may be an incentive for those living on fixed incomes. 
  • While sales taxes are a bit higher in Missouri than nationally, seniors who rely entirely on Social Security benefits or public pensions for their income may be eligible for a full tax exemption. IRAs and other retirement savings plans are fully taxable. 
  • Neosho has an active Arts Council, sponsors a Fall Festival complete with a scarecrow contest, and features Big Spring Park with beautiful gardens and picnic tables. Some of the assisted living communities may also offer outings to the local Fish Farm and Newton County Historical Park.
