2023 Top Kansas Senior Living Communities

Kansas lies in the heartland of America. The Sunflower State is an excellent choice for transitioning into a senior living facility, but selecting the right one takes some effort. What level of care should you be looking for? How do you know if the facility is properly staffed? Are there extra costs above and beyond the quoted monthly costs?

These are the important questions to key in on. The search can feel overwhelming which is why we’ve completed the hard work for you. The following list contains the 15 highest-rated facilities in Kansas. Not all communities are equally represented, so if your town or city does not appear, our senior living directory is a handy resource. Additionally, we have assisted living consultants on-call to help in your search. Please feel free to contact us.  

Tips on Budgeting for a Kansas Senior Living Community
Budgeting for anything takes planning. Forecasting your monthly expenses for a senior living home is no different, but instead of focusing on your current spending behavior, try and identify the absolute necessities (medical or lifestyle-related) and those items you could do without. There will also be services and amenities included in the monthly facility rate, so it is important to understand what those are and remove them from your calculations. A clear budget will facilitate your search considerably.  

Ranking The Best Senior Living Facilities in Kansas

To arrive at our top 15 providers, we read through thousands of reviews on Facebook and Google. We then compared those with reviews left on our site and ranked the list accordingly. Lastly, we dug into the Kansas Department of Health website, searching for facility complaints or violations. Those providers with complaints were removed. 

On average, a Kansas senior living community costs $2,200. This is below the national average, but depending on the services needed the monthly price can rise as high as $2,600. Facilities that offer memory care or employ highly-trained specialists are the most expensive. There are also cities and towns with higher costs of living which affect the price.

Carrington at Cherry Creek Wichita KS

What residents and loved ones have to say about Carrington at Cherry Creek:

the facility has really came a long way. Its clean, caters to all ages, offers a lot of activities and you never smell bad odors like you do in a lot of facilities. Its like a city within a city with their own facility store, activities all the time scheduled, dances, church services, shopping trips, even the casino once a month for the ones that want to go. The staff are helpful and friendly. They even have notices posted at entry where the state and governor have sent letters commending them on no deficiencies and the noticeable hard work that has been done there.

silvercrest at college view lenexa ks

What residents and loved ones have to say about Silvercrest at College View:

This is a long past due review. I cannot thank the staff of Silvercrest at College View for the care they gave my mother from Feb 2018 to Apr 2020. Every person on the staff brought a skill that took a senior care facility to a home, and a place of safety for my mom. Staff members, from the front desk, administration, dining room, activities, nursing, maintenance, care givers, etc made it a point to get to know the residents and developed care plans, personal interactions with them that made them feel at home, safe and welcome. I cannot thank them enough!

What residents and loved ones have to say about Glenwood Village of Overland Park:

Amazing care and great staff. Location is good. Close to shopping and many restaurants. I feel like when Dad wants to be active he can be and when he needs down time he can have that. It’s so homey and warm. It’s a perfect place for my Dad. He is so happy. The staff especially Norah is thoughtful and understanding. She took the time to learn what are needs where and how to help.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Rock Creek of Ottawa:

I have been using outpatient therapy services from Rock Creek for several weeks following a knee replacement and am so glad that this is the path I chose. From the initial call to set up services to the ongoing therapy sessions the staff has been attentive, professional and easy to work with. I have been especially pleased and impressed with the level of knowledge my PT brings to each session and her ability to adapt the goals of therapy to my individual needs. I highly recommend considering Rock Creek therapy services.
