What to Consider About Assisted Living in Nixa

Nixa, Missouri, is a small city in Christian County, one of the fastest-growing counties in the state and country. The city's population has increased by 353 percent over the last couple of decades, and more than 14 percent of Nixa residents are seniors at least 65 years old. There are more than 35 assisted living facilities located near Nixa, Missouri, to meet the long-term care needs of local seniors, including facilities in Springfield, Marionville and Ozark. These 24-hour facilities are regulated by The Department of Health and Senior Services, an agency that establishes and regulates assisted living guidelines across the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Nixa

  • Nixa has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Springfield.
  • The weather changes each season in Nixa, making it an ideal destination for seniors who don't mind fluctuating temperatures. Average temperatures typically range from 27 to 89 degrees, with cold weather in the winter and fall and warm weather in the spring and summer.
    Precipitation occurs throughout the year, with the heaviest rain in the spring and snow, sleet and ice in the winter.
  • Seniors seeking a safe assisted living facility may feel comfortable choosing long-term care in Nixa, Missouri. Nixa has a lower crime rate than 42 percent of U.S. cities, including other Missouri cities such as St. Louis and nearby Springfield. Annually, Nixa averages less than 350 crimes per year, with property crimes making up the bulk of crime data. Nixa residents have a 1 in 66 chance of experiencing a crime, which is lower than Missouri's 1 in 35 odds.
