    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Springfield

    Springfield is a bustling community in southwestern Missouri.  It is the third largest city in the state and is home to the historic Route 66. Assisted living facilities in Springfield are licensed by the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services and are classified as either residential care facilities (RCFs) or assisted living facilities (ALFs). ALFs are defined as long-term care facilities that provide 24-hour services such as assistance with daily activities and health care supervision.
