What to consider about assisted living in Wichita

When you’re searching for an assisted living facility in Wichita, consider the following:

  • The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services is responsible for regulating Kansas assisted living facilities. Assisted living facilities must have a license from the department in order to operate.
  • Kansas is moderately tax-friendly toward retirees. The state exempts all Social Security income for those with a federal adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less. The state also exempts public pension income from taxes. Withdrawals from retirement accounts and private pensions are fully taxable. Make sure to take taxes into consideration when budgeting for an assisted living facility.
  • Wichita Transit offers bus service throughout the city. Many assisted living facilities offer transportation, but older adults may also feel comfortable using Wichita Transit. Adults 65 and older are eligible for the “Half-Fare Program.” All buses have a wheelchair lift or ramp. Paratransit van service is available to certain individuals.
  • Wichita experiences all four seasons, with summer temperatures in the 80s and above and winter temperatures below 50. Wichita also has a history of tornadoes. Ask each facility you visit about its plans in case of a tornado or other weather emergency.
  • Wichita is only safer than 1% of American cities, according to NeighborhoodScout. When searching for an assisted living community, ask what security measures are in place to keep residents safe.
