What to Consider About Assisted Living in Union

Union, Missouri, is located approximately 50 miles southwest of St. Louis along the Mississippi River and was named to represent a union among the community. Today, this city is home to 10,204 people, including a senior community making up over 11% of that number. Some of these seniors may not be able to live independently now or in the near future. In Union, there are assisted living facilities to help seniors with the tasks of everyday living, with an additional 17 facilities in nearby communities such as Ellisville, Pacific and Warrenton.

These facilities are licensed as assisted living communities and residential care facilities in Union and throughout the state, both of which are licensed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Union

  • Missouri’s tax laws may put a strain on Union seniors. The state fully taxes withdrawals from retirement savings accounts and private pensions, and partially taxes both Social Security benefits and public pensions.
  • Union’s cost of living is 92.5, on par with the Missouri average, and slightly lower than the U.S. average of 100. Seniors can also expect to pay less for groceries, healthcare, housing and utilities than they would in other areas of the state or nation, which might make this city an ideal location for seniors looking for an affordable city to retire. Transportation costs are slightly higher than the national average at 103.4, which might be of concern to seniors who no longer drive.
  • The Union area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Washington.
  • Violent crime rates in Union are 17, five points lower than the national average of 22.7. The city’s property crime rate is 67.3, almost double the national average of 35.4. Seniors may want to inquire about safety protocols when visiting assisted living facilities in the area.
  • Although the air quality rating for Union at 64 is six points higher than the U.S. average of 58, seniors with respiratory conditions may want to check the pollen levels daily before venturing outside.
  • Summers in Union can reach temperatures of 89 degrees, while winter lows can be 22. The sun shines on this city 200 days each year, five less than the U.S. average of 205, which still allows plenty of time to enjoy the great outdoors.
