What to Consider About Assisted Living in Park Hills
The Park Hills area was settled in the early 1700s by lead miners. The ore deposits were so vast that they weren’t depleted until 1972. While the area isn’t a hotspot for mining anymore, it’s still home to approximately 8,500 people, and 10.3% of them are seniors. If Park Hills seniors need help with activities of daily living as they age, they can turn to any of the 12 assisted living facilities in the area.
These assisted living facilities, like those in the rest of the state, are licensed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. They provide 24-hour supervision and care to seniors who require help with bathing, eating, dressing and other daily tasks.
