10 Best Nursing Homes in Kansas City, MO

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Making decisions about the care of a loved one is difficult, and trying to find the right senior living option can feel overwhelming. If you’re considering a nursing home in Kansas City for your loved one, our team is here to help you every step of the way.

The term “nursing home” is often used interchangeably with assisted living, memory care, and other senior housing options. By definition, a nursing home is a skilled nursing facility for individuals with serious, debilitating health issues. Even the best nursing homes in Kansas City might not be right for seniors who don’t need constant care.

Assisted living or memory care facilities might be the right option for your loved one. Assisted living facilities typically offer support with daily activities like bathing and dressing, as well as medication management. Memory care facilities provide safe and secure environments that are specifically tailored to the needs of seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Both take care of things like laundry, meals, and housekeeping.

All of our assisted living and memory care listings are within 10 miles of downtown Kansas City, offering affordable options for almost any level of care. Because Kansas City sits on a state line, the 10-mile radius extends into Kansas.

Keep reading for a comprehensive look at the local senior care facilities in Kansas City, how to pay for them, and information on health care, transportation, and things to do.

Costs of nursing homes in the Kansas City area

While nursing homes often cost more than other varieties of senior living, the cost for your loved one depends on the level of care they require. In Kansas City, a private room in a skilled nursing facility carries a median cost of $7,908 per month.[01]

Seniors who don’t require the kind of continuous care given at a skilled nursing facility can opt for less expensive options, such as an assisted living community. According to A Place for Mom’s proprietary data, assisted living in Kansas City costs about $4,530 a month on average at our partner communities. For seniors who might be dealing with dementia, the average monthly cost for a room in a Kansas City memory care facility is about $4,966. These totals do include additional costs and fees.

VA benefits for nursing homes in Kansas City

With tens of thousands of veterans located in Kansas City, many seniors in the area qualify for assistance through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Whether they require skilled nursing care, assisted living, or memory care, VA Pension or disability benefits can help offset care costs. Veterans have to meet qualifications to receive a VA Pension.

In addition to a VA pension, veterans and their spouses might qualify for the VA Aid and Attendance benefit, which provides an additional monthly payment designed to cover the cost of long-term senior care. These funds can cover the cost of in-home caregivers or be used by seniors with disabilities or individuals who require long-term care in memory care, assisted living, and skilled nursing facilities.

Note that the application process for any VA benefit is long and difficult, so it’s best to contact the resources below before applying. There are veterans service officers available through the Missouri Veterans Commission, the Kansas Commission on Veterans Affairs, and many veterans service organizations.

24643

About 24,643 veterans live in Kansas City, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

25% of those veterans are over the age of 75, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Kansas City Medicaid for nursing homes

Another way families can help offset the cost of long-term care is to look into Medicaid. Known as MO HealthNet in Missouri and KanCare in Kansas, Medicaid can pay for long-term care for seniors who fall below a set income threshold or who require skilled nursing care for a diagnosed illness or injury.

Medicaid can cover all of the costs of skilled nursing care in a nursing home, but it also can pay for some in-home health care services. Seniors in assisted living or memory care facilities who require these medically necessary in-home care services can get help through Medicaid’s Home & Community-Based Services Waivers in Missouri or Kansas.

Before they can qualify for Medicaid, seniors must first exhaust their private savings — their total assets must be less than $2,000 — and then navigate the Medicaid application process. Seniors who want to apply for Medicaid through MO HealthNet can begin the process online. They can apply for KanCare here.

Medicare nursing home coverage in Kansas City

Medicare is a federal program that covers health care costs for seniors over 65. Under very specific conditions, Medicare can cover the costs associated with care in a skilled nursing facility[03].

To be eligible, seniors must have been hospitalized for at least three consecutive days for a medical condition; their doctor must also specify that they require skilled nursing care daily.[04] Seniors must then receive that skilled nursing care within a Medicare-certified facility, with the care relating to the same condition or disease that caused the initial hospital stay.

Medicare coverage is a short-term answer for skilled nursing care costs, as it’s generally limited to a maximum of 100 days per benefit period. Seniors might still be responsible for out-of-pocket costs such as deductibles and coinsurance for their care.

As for assisted living and memory care facilities, Medicare does not directly cover these expenses. It can, however, be used to pay some of the medical costs associated with assisted living or memory care. These might include prescription medications, medical equipment, or rehabilitation.

There are also Medicare Savings Programs in both Missouri and Kansas that can help seniors who qualify pay for some of the premium and copay costs. MORx, can also help Missouri seniors with medication expenses. The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) helps Kansas seniors get access to both health care and social services.

For help with the complex application process and to better understand these benefits and programs, Missouri seniors can reach out to CLAIM, the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP). The Senior Health Insurance Counseling for Kansas (or SHICK) is available for seniors in Kansas. The long-term care ombudsman and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services’ regional branch in Kansas City can help anyone.

Understand Missouri laws and regulations for nursing homes

Nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities are overseen by the federal government, specifically the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. However, the states carry out regulations. In Missouri, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) licenses and inspects nursing homes. In Kansas, the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) performs those duties. DHSS and KDADS conduct routine inspections of nursing homes, and also investigate any complaints related to alleged abuse, neglect, or unlicensed facilities.

Licensing and inspection information is available online through the DHSS website and KDADS website.

In terms of regulations for Kansas City, Missouri, nursing homes, the state of Missouri sets standards related to certifications, licensures, training, sanitary standards, and resident rights. With regard to sanitation, for instance, the regulations state that nursing homes must have easy-to-clean surfaces, one-time use utensils and cups, proper food preparation areas, and sealed foods kept at safe temperatures.[05]

In Kansas, regular inspections are performed to ensure all regulations are being met, typically annually. These inspections cover a broad range of areas, including care, medication management, staff levels, and facility maintenance. As an example, nursing homes located in Kansas state must have at least one registered nurse on duty for at least eight hours a day.  Inspections are performed by KDADS, but might also involve representatives from CMS.

Laws and regulations for other senior care facilities in Kansas City

Some of the above regulations also apply to memory care and assisted living facilities in Kansas City. In Missouri, for example, any facility that provides care for people who have physical, cognitive, or other impairments that might make it difficult for them to safely evacuate the building in case of an emergency must meet the same minimum staff-to-resident ratios: 1:15 during daytime and evening shifts and 1:20 during overnights.[06]

The comprehensive list of laws and regulations for assisted living in Missouri can be found here, but the following are some of the most pertinent points.

  • There must be 24-hour care and protective oversight.
  • Facilities are able to bring in services from third-party providers to meet residents’ needs.
  • All new residents must have a physical examination conducted by a licensed physician.
  • The maximum number of beds per unit is four.
  • At least one shower must be provided for every 20 residents.
  • There must be a licensed administrator in charge of the facility at all times

Memory care facilities in Missouri also are licensed and inspected by the DHSS. Each facility must have a licensed administrator, licensed nurse, and direct care staff. In addition, if a facility administers medications, it must have a Level I medication aide or certified medication technician on staff.

Kansas regulations

The full list of laws and regulations for assisted living in Kansas can be found here, but the following are some of the most pertinent points.

  • Wellness and health monitoring is required.
  • A licensed nurse, social worker or administrator must conduct a functional capacity screening on each new resident and follow up with screenings annually.
  • Every apartment must be at least 200 square feet (not including bathrooms or closets).
  • The facility must follow life safety codes for building.
  • All staff must have training pertaining to abuse, neglect, and exploitation, and in disaster and emergency preparedness.
  • Administrators and operators must hold a Kansas license as an adult care home administrator and complete the operator training.

Similarly, dementia care facilities in Kansas are required to have full-time operations, administrators, and 24-hour staff that is awake and active. There should also be a registered nurse available to supervise licensed nurses on staff. Furthermore, staff must be trained on how to treat behavioral symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
