Learn More About Assisted Living in Kansas City, KS

Not to be confused with its larger, older, and more expensive twin city directly to the east — or with the upscale suburbs throughout Johnson County to the south — Kansas City, Kansas stretches from the Missouri state line all the way out to the Kansas Speedway, about 20 miles westward. This expansive size gives KCK a wide variety of living options. Residents of historic neighborhoods like Strawberry Hill and Rosedale have easy access to all the urban attractions of KCMO, but just a few miles to the west, planned communities and rural life await.

In KCK, assisted living communities provide personal care services in settings typically ranging from private apartments to shared rooms, often with restaurant-style dining and activities based on residents’ interests. Designed to promote independence among seniors who don’t require 24-hour skilled nursing care, assisted living is a good option for retirees who need help with some daily tasks and would like to live a socially fulfilling, active lifestyle.


Cost of Assisted Living in Kansas City, KS

The median monthly cost of assisted living is about $2,900 in KCK and $4,500 within the Kansas City metropolitan area.
