2023 Top Missouri Senior Living Communities

The Show Me State offers a range of senior living community options for elderly adults. A senior living facility creates an environment designed to make life easier, but not all locations are managed equally. Selecting a provider can feel overwhelming, as a state like Missouri has hundreds of living and care options for mature adults. What are the necessary services you’ll need? How much are the monthly living costs?  

We understand how complex this search can be. Our objective is to help you find the best senior living home for you or your loved one. This is why we’ve taken the time to narrow down the top 15 centers in Missouri. Don’t see your city or county listed here? You can also search our senior living directory for additional options and please contact us if you require assistance in your search. A professional advisor is available to guide you.    

Smart Budgeting for a Missouri Senior Living Community
Senior living can get expensive. There are many additional services that might be required depending on the needs. A common mistake when budgeting for an senior living and care community is not considering future expenses. If more care is needed someday or more services are added, the monthly cost will go up.

Ranking The Best Senior Living Facilities in Missouri

How did we arrive at the best Missouri assisted living communities? Ranking anything in a state as large as Missouri is no easy feat. We looked at reviews left on our website as well as those on Facebook and Google, and assigned each provider a score on a 1 to 5 scale.  Reviews are a great starting point, but they don’t tell the whole story. We then checked with the Missouri Department of Health to make sure no citations or violations had been reported for the resulting providers.

The median price for an assisted living center in Missouri is roughly $2,950 per month. Facilities that provide skilled nursing or memory care will be more expensive, and most homes include meals, basic amenities, and services in their monthly rate. Independent living is cheaper, but doesn’t provide any care. Do be sure to compare living packages across similar providers to better understand the differences in pricing.

The Madison Senior Living Kansas City MO

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Madison Senior Living:

Since living at The Madison, I have made new friends with fellow residents and with staff. Any problem I encounter, like mailing packages during the holiday season to hanging numerous pictures on the wall, I have had kind help to accomplish the tasks. And the chef and staff always make dining a pleasant experience. It has been a great choice for me to make The Madison my home!

St Louis Hills Assisted Living Memory Care

What residents and loved ones have to say about St. Louis Hills:

Such a wonderful place for senior living. It is bright and cheerful and very clean. The rooms are spacious and nice and the staff is friendly and caring. Their new Executive Director is exceptional. She cares for and knows all of her residents and makes sure that their home is always lovely and comfortable for them. There are so many fun activities planned that everyone has a chance to keep busy if they choose to do so. I only hope they have an open room when I’m ready. I definitely recommend Charter Senior Living!

What residents and loved ones have to say about Brookdale Creve Coeur:

I can’t say enough positive things about Brookdale Creve Coeur. My father moved into Brookdale two years ago and he has been extremely happy there. The administration and staff treat my dad like family, and they have gone out of their way to help him in any way possible. The facility is beautiful and well-maintained and they have a variety of activities each day so that my dad is never bored. I do not have to worry about my father because I know that he is happy and well taken care of in Brookdale.
