The Benefits of Assisted Living in Kansas City: Why Choose St. Anthony’s Senior Living Facility

Seniors exercising, physical wellness

When looking into senior living options for yourself or a loved one, you may realize that assisted living is the right approach for your situation. Assisted living provides a level of care and a supportive environment that you simply will not find anywhere else!

If you’re looking for assisted living in Kansas City, you’ve come to the right place. St. Anthony’s has been the favorite destination for seniors in Kansas City for years, and we are proud to serve our community’s older adults with a wonderful assisted living experience!



Five Benefits of Assisted Living in Kansas City

St. Anthony’s is an award-winning senior living facility for a reason. We genuinely care about each resident, helping them create the life they want with the support they need. Let’s explore five reasons why St. Anthony’s is the best choice for assisted living in Kansas City.


1. Connection and Community

Moving a parent to assisted living can leave a lot of adult children feeling guilty. But it’s in no way abandoning your parent! In fact, it’s the very opposite. Assisted living provides seniors with a chance to build relationships with their peers and be part of a thriving community that loves them, rather than feeling isolated and struggling with depression as a result. At St. Anthony’s, we make it our mission to ensure no resident ever feels lonely by providing an engaging, friendly assisted living environment.

Here are a few examples of how we foster that community:

  • A full calendar of activities so every day has something new to do with your fellow residents! 
  • Happy hour to encourage socialization amongst assisted living residents
  • A community dining room to foster connections and make mealtime a family event
  • Off-campus events to explore Kansas City together, like shopping or visiting different restaurants
  • Spiritual connection opportunities, including Mass and Bible Study


2. Engaging Entertainment

We tailor our activities calendar to ensure each resident can find something unique that they enjoy. We pack the calendar with a wide variety of activities and entertainment to keep things lively and interesting for everyone! 

Here are a few things you can expect on the assisted living calendar each month:

  • Live music performances from local artists and bands
  • Move nights (with popcorn!)
  • Seasonal arts and crafts
  • Board games and card games like Kings in the Corner (a resident favorite!)
  • Football watch parties (Go Chiefs!)
  • Hobby-focused clubs for cooking, gardening, music, and more!


3. Curated Care

Just as everyone has different personalities and hobbies, each resident in assisted living will require a different level of care. Some residents may even have a spouse in assisted living who doesn’t require any additional care! For this reason, our highly trained care staff always assess new residents and have an in-depth conversation with the resident and their loved ones about an individually curated care plan. This care plan will be designed to keep you or your loved one safe and comfortable while allowing for as much autonomy and independence as possible.

Your care plan may include some or all of the following, depending on your need:

  • Medication management
  • Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), such as bathing and dressing
  • Help with dining during meals
  • Incontinence care
  • Mobility support
  • Transportation to and from medical appointments


Beyond these specific care support items, all assisted living residents enjoy spacious apartments with oversized bathrooms designed to reduce the risk of falling, support from on-call nurses any time of the day or night, and access to all of the luxurious amenities St. Anthony’s has to offer!


4. Food and Fitness

To help residents maintain their physical health to the best of their abilities, the assisted living experience includes three highly nutritional meals daily and fitness classes made accessible to all ability levels!


Dining at St. Anthony’s Assisted Living

Our menu is dietician-approved and prepared by five-star quality chefs who are happy to work with residents for individual dietary restrictions and preferences. Options always include a vegetarian option and a gluten and dairy-free option, and residents always have their choice of chili, salad, rolls, cornbread, and desserts made fresh daily!


Fitness at St. Anthony’s Assisted Living

Staying physically active is essential for seniors of all ability levels, as it can ease many different aches and pains and reduce the risk of mobility issues in the future. In addition to an on-site fitness center where residents can exercise and work with our on-site trainers and physical therapists, assisted living residents enjoy group exercise classes right in their own community room. We like to keep these workouts interesting, switching them up with chair exercises and kickball while also working on the occasional fun extra like virtual reality sledding!


5. Spiritual Support

As a faith-based senior living community, we believe it’s just as important to tend to our residents’ spiritual wellness as it is to tend to their physical, mental, and emotional wellness! Assisted living residents may have various physical complications that make traveling to their local church difficult, so we invite them all to join us for Mass and the Rosary each week to continue their religious practices with their newfound loved ones at St. Anthony’s!

To provide the best possible spiritual support, we have priests on-site who love to meet with our residents and pray for them as often as possible. If you or your loved one are a practicing Catholic, you understand just how important it is to be able to continue pursuing your relationship with God after moving to assisted living!
