Learn More About Independent 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.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Kansas City are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Kansas City retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.

The median monthly cost of independent living is about $1,500 in KCK and $2,500 in the Kansas City area. The median monthly cost of independent living in 2020 in the state of Kansas was around $2,400.
