What to Consider About Assisted Living in Raytown

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services oversees assisted living facilities in Raytown and enforces licensing rules related to housing, staffing and services. It also maintains a list of all licensed facilities in the state and publishes information on financial planning, residents’ rights and supplemental services in the community.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Raytown

 

  • Raytown doesn’t have any hospitals within its limits, but it’s centrally located near several major medical facilities, including Research Medical Center in Kansas City and Centerpoint Medical Center in Independence. In addition to this, many local assisted living facilities support telehealth services or have on-call physicians who provide routine medical care for residents.
  • Seniors whose annual income is below $85,000, or $100,000 for joint filers, don’t pay state income taxes on Social Security benefits. Additionally, public pensions aren’t taxable at the state level and there are deductions to reduce what retirees pay on other forms of income. This may leave more money available for paying for assisted living expenses in Raytown.
  • On a 100-point index based on average living costs nationwide, Raytown scores 84.9, meaning that altogether, the local cost of living is 15% lower than the national norm. This is in line with the state norm, although expenses such as utilities and transportation are a little higher here than in Missouri as a whole. Many assisted living facilities in Raytown feature all-inclusive pricing, which may help seniors budget for monthly expenses.
  • Property crime occurs more frequently in Raytown than in a typical U.S. city, but the violent crime rate is consistent with the national norm. On a 100-point index, the city scores 63.1 for property-related offenses, compared to 35.4 nationally. However, the violent crime score is only about a point higher than the nationwide average of 22.7. For seniors concerned about crime, assisted living may be an attractive alternative to living independently.
  • Raytown sees warm summers and cold winters, appealing to those who enjoy changing scenery throughout the year. Winter lows are near 20 degrees Fahrenheit and summer highs are close to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and residents see about 43 inches of rain and just over a foot of snow annually. Assisted living residents can participate in indoor and outdoor recreational activities throughout the year, helping them stay active even in unfavorable weather.
