What to Consider About Memory Care in Lenexa

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services licenses and monitors memory care facilities in Lenexa and requires them to follow rules related to the scope of services they provide, intake and discharge criteria, staffing and security. The department also oversees staff screening and training, and it houses the state’s long-term care ombudsman office.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Lenexa

 

  • Lenexa doesn’t have a hospital, but it sits close to numerous major medical facilities, including Overland Park Regional Medical Center. This hospital resides less than 2 miles outside of Lenexa and has board-certified neurologists who treat memory-related conditions. Additionally, many memory care residents have staff nurses and visiting physicians who provide routine medical oversight.

 

  • Kansas doesn’t tax Social Security benefits or public pension income for seniors whose adjusted gross annual income falls below $75,000. Seniors pay state income tax rates of 3.1% to 5.7% on their remaining income, impacting how much money they can put toward memory care services. Sales and property taxes run higher in this state than in the nation as a whole, but choosing residential care lets many seniors minimize additional expenses.

 

  • Lenexa’s summer season spans late May through mid-September and brings an average daytime temperature of 79 degrees Fahrenheit, although temperatures in the height of summer soar as high as 98 degrees Fahrenheit. Winter, which lasts from late November through late February, has typical daytime temperatures ranging from 39 to 49 degrees Fahrenheit, appealing to prospective memory care residents who enjoy experiencing distinct seasons.

 

  • On the AARP Livability Index, Lenexa’s score surpasses the national average city score by 10 points, coming in at 58 and making it one of the more favorable places in the nation for retirement. Patients report satisfaction with the medical care they receive, with 78% indicating contentment, which exceeds the national average of 69%. The city’s high access to outpatient care contributes to a low preventable hospitalization rate of 33.4 incidents per 1,000 people versus 38.2 nationally.

 

  • Compared to other cities with similar population sizes, Lenexa’s crime rate ranks well below the average. The city reports approximately 18 illegal incidents per 1,000 people, and both property-related and violent offenses occur at a lower frequency than in the state and the nation as a whole, providing peace of mind for families with loved ones in local memory care communities.

Paying for Memory Care in Lenexa

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates.

In Lenexa, memory care residents pay a baseline monthly rate of $5,731 for specialized care.
