Read on for more reasons you should choose a Prairie Village retirement plus information on your senior living options.
A Few Quick Facts on Prairie Village
What makes Prairie Village such a great place to live? For one, consider its location in Johnson County – one of the wealthiest counties in Kansas. Prairie Village has even been rated as the best place to live in the entire state by neighborhood ranking aggregator Niche. They specifically cite its spread-out suburban feel and age-diverse population ranging from young professionals to distinguished seniors.
The prosperity of Prairie Village doesn’t mean that senior living is overpriced in the area – far from it! According to Genworth’s most recent Cost of Care Survey, assisted living costs in Prairie Village are about $400 lower per month than the national average. That number becomes even more impressive when you consider that the national figure even includes rural communities and those with a serious lack of amenities and services.
Of course, senior living in the heart of Prairie Village comes with many perks. Shopping centers like The Village and Corinth Square are right down the road, offering luxurious boutiques and delicious restaurant dining. Public parks and walking paths abound, giving you many ways to enjoy the great outdoors. It’s the ideal home base for anyone wishing to have a slice of small town living near the big city.
Choosing the Right Community for You
If you do decide to live in Prairie Village, you next need to choose a community. Use these criteria to make your choice a little easier.
ASK YOURSELF, What’s your style?
What kind of amenities are must-haves? A pool, gym or spa? How about chef-centric cuisine? A senior living community can feel like a luxury resort, and communities offer a variety of different floor plans to fit your desired lifestyle. Think about what’s important to you while you shop around and compare your options.
Consider care offerings.
Seniors who choose independent living should still account for the higher levels of care a community has to offer – and how much access current residents have to them. Assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing are the most common levels of care you’ll find around the country.
Keep an eye on contracts.
How you’ll pay for living at a community matters almost as much as which community you choose. Some communities expect a large upfront entry fee, while others offer the flexibility of renting on a monthly basis. This doesn’t make a huge difference for overall cost, but the rental model offers obvious benefits for seniors who might move again in the future.
