    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lees Summit

    Many middle-aged adults and children call Lee's Summit home, but elderly residents age 65 and older make up nearly 12 percent of the city's population. Some of these seniors are among Missouri's 110,000 adults with Alzheimer's disease, while others live with dementia or similar conditions. To meet the needs of these Missourians, approximately 10 memory care facilities are in the Lee's Summit area.

    In Missouri, memory care facilities are also called residential care facilities, often shortened to RCFs, and assisted living facilities. Staff who work directly with patients at these facilities must participate in at least three hours of dementia-specific training. This helps health-care workers understand the special needs and behaviors of dementia patients so they can provide appropriate care.

    • Lee's Summit, Missouri, is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Saint Luke's East Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • In Lee's Summit, temperatures typically range from the low 20s during winter to the high 80s during summer, but residents sometimes experience significant deviations from this range. Seniors with dementia need seasonally appropriate clothing in case they wander outside during triple-digit or below-zero temperatures. Summer is characterized by high humidity, which may create breathing difficulties for residents with respiratory conditions. Winter often brings ice, snow and sleet.
    • Seniors with memory issues have minimal risks if they ask for help or directions in Lee's Summit. The city is safer than 6 out of 10 other U.S. cities, and it also has a lower crime rate than the Missouri average. The risk of experiencing a violent crime in Lee Summit is one in 924, which is significantly better than Missouri's average of one in 193.
    • Lee's Summit has a cost of living that is slightly higher than the national average. Groceries cost less than the U.S. average, but residents of Lee's Summit typically pay higher rates for transportation, housing and medical care.
