    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kansas City

    Kansas City is situated on the Kansas-Missouri border, a region where it's estimated that 50,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease. This large city is home to roughly 490,000 people, with about 12 percent of the population over the age of 65. Local families with loved ones who have dementia have access to an array of resources, including a free 24-hour helpline and six memory care facilities within the city proper. Those who are looking for more options will find an additional 18 facilities just outside the city limits.

    In Kansas City, as in all of Missouri, memory care facilities may have their own dedicated building or be located within an assisted living facility. Assisted living facilities with memory care must provide orientation to every staff member, as well as ongoing dementia-specific training for those working with residents who have dementia. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Regulation and Licensure, Section for Long-Term Care Regulation, licenses memory care facilities.

    • In Missouri, Social Security is fully tax exempt for seniors who earn less than $85,000 if filing single and $100,000 if filing jointly. All other types of retirement income are fully taxable, though there is a large discount for public pension income.
    • Kansas City summers are hot and muggy with highs around 90, and winters are cold with lows in the 20s. The city may be well-suited for seniors who enjoy experiencing four distinct seasons, but those who prefer mild temperatures may find the city uncomfortable. 
    • Kansas City has a high crime rate, which may be a consideration for families who are helping their loved ones transition to a local memory care facility. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 representing the highest crime, Kansas City is rated 91, compared to the national average of 31.1. Property crime is rated 65.7, compared to the U.S. average of 38.1. To keep residents safe, memory care facilities utilize a variety of security equipment and safety procedures.
    • Kansas City's overall cost of living is on par with Missouri's average and about 8 percent less than the national average. Healthcare expenses here are roughly the same here as they are elsewhere in the country, which may appeal to seniors on a budget.
