    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Saint Louis City

    St. Louis is most widely recognized for its rich multicultural heritage and vibrant arts and culture scene. This sprawling city is home to over 300,000 residents, about 12 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. 

    Local seniors have nearly 70 assisted living facilities to choose from, including nine in the city proper. Assisted living facilities in Saint Louis and all of Missouri are also called residential care facilities, and are licensed through the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Saint Louis City

    • According to the American Lung Association, St. Louis County, where the city of St. Louis is located, has very high ozone pollution levels and moderate short-term particle pollution levels, receiving the respective grades of F and C. This may be a consideration for seniors who have respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses. 
    • In Missouri, all retirement income is taxable, including income received from Social Security. However, seniors can claim deductions on their Social Security benefits and public pensions, which may help them afford assisted living expenses in St. Louis.
    • The St. Louis area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Barnes-Jewish HospitalKindred Hospital and SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    •  St. Louis is an affordable place to live, with an overall cost of living that is about four percent lower than the state average and a little over 10 percent lower than the national average. Seniors can expect to spend an average of 5 percent less on groceries, healthcare expenses and utilities and about 35 percent less on housing prices than they would elsewhere in the nation.
      • St. Louis's crime rate is among the highest in the nation, with a crime index of 1 out of 100. This indicates that it is more dangerous than 99 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes. Seniors who are transitioning to assisted living here may want to ensure that the community they choose has safety features like alarm systems and high-security locks. 
      • Like most Midwestern cities, St. Louis is prone to extreme temperatures. Winters are very cold with lows around 23 degrees, and summers are hot with highs near 90. The city receives just 15 inches of annual snowfall, versus the national average of 26 inches, which may appeal to seniors with mobility challenges.
