    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sedalia

    Just a short drive from the Missouri River, Sedalia is a small city known for hosting the annual Missouri Fair for more than 115 years. More than 15% of the 21,718 Sedalia residents are seniors, some of whom decide to age in the community. Sedalia meets the needs of these residents in 10 assisted living facilities.

    The Department of Health and Senior Services regulates the performance of assisted living communities in Sedalia and throughout Missouri. This regulation covers traditional assisted living facilities, intermediate care facilities, residential care facilities and skilled nursing facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sedalia

    • The Sedalia area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Bothwell Regional Health Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Sedalia seniors who feel uncomfortable during hot, humid weather should choose indoor activities during the summer, as temperatures sometimes soar to 100 degrees. Winters are chilly, with temperatures dropping into the 20s and 30s.
    • Sedalia has a high crime rate and is safer than just 3% of other U.S. cities. However, the bulk of crimes affect personal property, such as automobiles and housing. Sedalia residents have a one in 19 risk of experiencing a property crime, but the risk drops to one in 143 for violent crimes.
    • The American Lung Association is not actively collecting air quality data for Pettis County, which is where Sedalia sits. However, poor air quality is a common complaint throughout Missouri. Seniors with respiratory conditions may want to remain indoors on days when air quality is poor.
    • Public transportation is limited in Sedalia on evenings, but there is a weekday bus that runs through the city every half hour beginning at 6:30 a.m. with dropoffs every 25 minutes until 6:25 p.m. Weekend service is available from 8:30 a.m. to 4:25 p.m. Seniors can also utilize the Pettis County OATS Transit for preplanned rides. 
    • With a score of 78 on a scale of 100, Sedalia has a low cost of living compared to the national average as well as the Missouri average. The median home price is nearly 50% lower than the national average, though residents typically pay for more groceries and healthcare.
