St. Anthony's Senior Living

Exploring the Amenities and Activities Offered at St. Anthony’s Senior Living Facility

One benefit of senior living communities, as opposed to aging at home, is the amenities and social opportunities provided to residents. St. Anthony’s helps residents of all life stages and abilities stay active and engaged through a full suite of amenities and fun activities!

Interested in getting a taste of what life is like in Kansas City’s preferred senior living community? Here’s your complete guide to our incredible amenities at St. Anthony’s Senior Living.


Five-Star Dining Experience

Dining is vital to every person’s wellbeing, not just their physical wellbeing! Meals are a time to gather with loved ones and enjoy social interaction, and studies have shown that seniors consume more calories when eating with others than when eating alone. This is a good thing, as many seniors can experience unintentional malnutrition from the loneliness of dining solo!

St. Anthony’s residents enjoy a comfortable, social environment at St. Elizabeth’s Bistro. Our five-star chef prepares the dietician-approved menu, with five delicious and unique options available six days a week. Some popular meals our residents enjoy include pasta primavera, ginger roasted salmon, shepherd’s pie, and Greek pizza. We also always have our residents’ favorite items available every day, including chili, the Best Bacon Cheeseburger, and a salad bar! 

Residents can enjoy a casual continental breakfast on weekday mornings and a gourmet Sunday brunch.


What Dining Looks Like in Assisted Living

Assisted living and memory care residents tend to have different dining needs than independent living residents. Limited mobility and inability to feed themselves make the autonomy of choosing when to dine at the Bistro difficult, so instead, our caregivers and assisted living residents enjoy cozy family-style dining together three meals a day!


Accessible Fitness Classes

Exercise is an integral part of every older adult’s routine, as it promotes physical and mental health and decreases the risk of many diseases. With a fully-equipped gym, personal trainers, and group fitness classes at the St. Thomas More Wellness Center, St. Anthony’s residents have everything they need to stay fit despite their physical limitations!


Chair Exercises in Assisted Living

Assisted living residents may struggle with physical limitations, but that doesn’t have to stop them from getting their heart rates pumping! Our assisted living and memory care residents enjoy lively chair exercises that can adapt to individual capabilities, plus moving their bodies in other fun ways like kickball or Sit N Be Fit workout videos.


Spiritual Community

Spiritual health is another key ingredient in a holistic approach to wellness, and as a faith-based senior living community sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, we provide ample opportunities for our residents to engage with their faith and stay connected in a spiritual community.


St. Anthony’s Chapel

Our on-site chapel provides afternoon Mass services seven days a week with our beloved resident priests, who are always available to meet with and pray for our residents. Independent living residents can often be found gathering in St. Peter’s Pub shortly after each Mass to have a glass of wine during Happy Hour!


Livestreamed Mass Services

To help our less mobile residents stay connected, we attend virtual Mass weekly from the comfort of our community living room. We also have a morning prayer and bible study group that meets every Friday, and take the time to pray the Rosary regularly. These religious practices are especially valuable for aiding memory retention with our spiritually active Memory Care residents!


All Saints Salon and Spa

A gym isn’t the only amenity you’ll find in the St. Thomas More Wellness Center — we also have a professional hair salon and spa for seniors to enjoy! Residents love to get pampered at the All Saints Salon and Spa, luxuriating in services like hair styling and coloring, professional massages, and mani-pedis with friends!


Beautiful Walking Gardens

The fun and fellowship flow through our halls and right out the doors into the Visitation Gardens, where residents love to stroll with visiting loved ones or take their pets out for some fresh air. Our gorgeously landscaped property is private and secure within our gated community, giving you a peaceful place to enjoy the beauty of Brookside.


Spacious Apartments

Our senior living apartments are private, spacious, and designed to feel like home. Every apartment is equipped with all the amenities you might desire, including oversized bathrooms with walk-in showers, extra large closets, granite countertops, and panoramic views of Kansas City.

Independent living residents also enjoy the following additional amenities:

  • In-unit washer and dryer
  • A cozy fireplace
  • And a full-sized kitchen with stainless steel appliances

Why don’t all our residents have these additional appliances and amenities in their apartments? We provide laundry and dining services for our assisted living and memory care residents. Independent living residents also have optional access to these add-on services if they so choose.
