Top 5 Factors For Choosing Senior Retirement Residence Kansas City

Choosing a senior retirement residence is something that many of the “Baby Boomer Generation” in Kansas City is facing. After a lifetime of working, raising a family and being part of a community, many seniors sell their home and move to a retirement community. This is a better option for those who choose to “age in place” rather than to move in with family or go into assisted living. Fortunately, there are many options available all over the metro for retirement communities to choose from.

Most retired adults in Kansas City live on a fixed income, so it’s necessary to factor in the cost of a senior retirement residence as well as finding the right the location. There is no single place that is right for everyone, therefore it’s important to locate a facility that is best suited for your particular needs. In addition to choosing a location that is affordable, there are other things to consider when choosing a senior retirement residence.

Following are 5 factors that statistics suggest are the most important when choosing a senior retirement residence.

  1. Cleanliness is critical in a retirement home. The number one method of disease prevention is keeping things clean, and keeping residents healthy by preventing the spread of infections is critically important. Responsible housekeeping ensures that furniture, bedding, and floors are kept clean and sanitized. It not only helps prevent injury from falls and other hazards but also significantly improves residents’ health and well-being.

  2. The quality and variety of food is a huge factor in choosing a senior retirement residence in Kansas City. When you don’t feel like cooking or just want a fine meal to share with a friend, or if you have special dietary needs, food is an important consideration. A facility with a dedicated chef is a much better option than cafeteria-style dining or vending machines.

  3. Many seniors have limited mobility and doing everyday housekeeping tasks is often difficult. A senior retirement residence that provides housekeeping and laundry services is a definite plus.

  4. Comfort and ambience in the overall facility, as well as individual living space, is important for seniors leaving the familiarity of their home. Having furnishings and décor that is conducive to rest and relaxation helps seniors to more easily adapt to a new environment and promotes better relationships with others around them.

  5. On-site or nearby services and amenities allow seniors to live the life they want and helps avoid depression, isolation and withdrawal from society. In fact, amenities such as hair salons, exercise classes and entertainment options are a high priority for Kansas City seniors.

Further, it is very important to have a network of friends and family in place when you need emotional or physical support. Therefore, choosing a retirement location where you have friends and family nearby, or the potential for making new friends is vital. Further, having access to healthcare when and if you need it is another important consideration when you are visiting the various Kansas City senior retirement facilities.
