Missouri Assisted Living Communities
WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

Missouri is a state with both Midwestern and Southern cultural influences, reflecting its history as a border state between the two regions. The state is named after the Missouri Siouan Indian tribe.
Even though more than 95% of Missouri’s land area is rural, it is home to more than 100 wineries, 6,000 caves and a notable contemporary art scene, especially around St. Louis. With urban centers like St. Louis and Kansas City, quality health care is easier to find than it is in some rural states. The overall cost of living is nearly 10% below the U.S. Average and nursing home and assisted-living costs are significantly lower than average, making it a viable option for retirement.
The Missouri climate is humid-continental, influenced by the Gulf of Mexico and from the northwest. Summers are hot and humid with frequent thunderstorms and occasional tornadoes.
