Who are you searching for?

Residential care homes in Lenexa may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Lenexa care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

What are care homes?

Residential care homes are houses in residential neighborhoods that are equipped, adapted, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually between two and 10. Like assisted living communities, staff at care homes typically help residents with activities of daily living, including bathing, dressing, and medication management. Although residential care homes vary significantly depending on the community, services usually include:

  • Help with personal care
  • Medication management
  • Mobility assistance
  • Nutritious meals
  • Social activities and outings
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry

Learn More About Care Homes in Lenexa, KS

 

Lenexa, west of Kansas City, offers plenty of services to meet its residents’ daily needs, such as shopping centers, restaurants, and healthcare facilities, in a suburban setting that lies within close reach of downtown Kansas City’s attractions. Many residents of Lenexa enjoy the high-end shopping options throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area, like the Lenexa Public Market and the Oak Park Mall.

In Lenexa, residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

Cost of Care Homes in Lenexa, KS

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home in 2019 was about $5,500 in the state of Kansas. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.
