What to Consider About Memory Care in Liberty

This agency inspects facilities and issues licenses for all types of long-term care communities. It also enforces regulations to ensure all facilities remain safe and prioritize patient care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Liberty

 

  • Seniors can receive a variety of health care services without leaving the city at Liberty Hospital. In addition to emergency services, the hospital offers many specialties, including pain management, cancer care, cardiology and rehabilitation therapy.
  • When it comes to cost of living, Liberty is 6% lower than the national average, making it slightly more affordable than many other cities in the United States. However, the Missouri cost of living is 14.4% lower than the national average, so there are many cities in the state that are more affordable than Liberty.
  • Seniors can enjoy relatively safe living in Liberty with crime rates lower than the U.S. average. Violent crime in Liberty has a rating of 16.5 out of 100 compared to 22.7 nationally, while property crime has a rating of 27.6, which is lower than the U.S. rating of 35.4. Plus, memory care facilities are secure with controlled entrances, which increases safety for residents.
  • The air quality in Liberty is 58 out of 100, which is the same as the U.S. average. Many memory care communities also take steps to create a clean, healthy environment for residents, especially those with respiratory conditions.
  • Liberty offers four distinct seasons for seniors who like variety. Summers are never too hot, with temperatures rarely climbing above 90°F, while winter temperatures will stay well above 0°F. The city has an average of 216 sunny days, which is a little more than the U.S. average of 205.
