Assisted Living in Kansas City, Kansas

Kansas City, Kansas, is the Kansas half of the greater Kansas City area, sharing a border and metro services with twin city Kansas City, Missouri. KCK, as it’s known locally, is the location of the Kansas Speedway, the host of the NASCAR Sprint Cup races. The Kansas City Chiefs football team and the Kansas City Royals pro baseball team also call this city home. KCK is a midwestern city, with hot summers and cold winters with snow, although the fall and spring seasons are quite pleasant. The cost of living in Kansas City is nearly 20 points lower than the national average, which can be beneficial for seniors who are budgeting for assisted living accommodations. In addition, Kansas exempts Social Security Income from state income tax (for amounts less than $75,000 per year), as well as government pensions, which many seniors may find advantageous. 

As an intermediate long-term care option, assisted living provides seniors who don’t need full-time care with a full-time community residence. Here, they can access activities of daily living assistance, prepared meals and even facilitated social activities. For Kansas City seniors, a month’s stay averages $4,585. This is on par with the national and state averages.

Below, we compare costs to more nearby areas and outline some resources for obtaining financial assistance for assisted living in Kansas City. Additionally, we discuss local laws that protect seniors who pay for and receive long-term care.
