What is Assisted Living?
Assisted living is for seniors who need a little assistance with day to day activities, but do not need clinical care. For many seniors, this simply means help with managing their medications, and other support. Assisted living is a casual and comfortable setting where each resident selects an private apartment home and furnishes it with their own belongings and artwork.
In addition to medication management, Avenue 81 Assisted Living also offers farm-to-table dining, scheduled transportation services and social activities. In assisted living, our goal is to help seniors enjoy each day to the fullest.
We understand finding the right care solution for yourself or a loved one can be stressful, and we’re here to help. Our team can give you information and answer your questions so you can make the best decision possible. Call us at 913-246-3690 to schedule a tour or learn more about assisted living.

Assisted Living FAQs
- Assisted living is very different from a tradition nursing home. In an assisted living community, seniors receive care services in a welcoming and comfortable setting. Avenue 81 assisted living residents have their own private apartment home with a kitchenette and private bathroom, and they are free to furnish their apartment with their own furniture and artwork. This allows their assisted living apartment to feel more like home. In a traditional nursing home, the setting is often very clinical. Nursing home rooms are furnished with more institutional furniture and there is a more hospital-like feeling. Assisted living could not be more different! Assisted living is care in a community setting that feels more like home, which is why many seniors prefer it to clinical nursing settings.
- Assisted living residents benefit from social interaction. Avenue 81 assisted living residents have the ability to connect with new peers and form new friendships. Although this may not sound like a big benefit, socializing with others plays a major part in a person’s mental and emotional wellbeing. In fact, some studies suggest residents in assisted living communities report a more positive mental outlook than seniors who age in their homes. At Avenue 81 assisted living, residents encounter smiling faces each and every day.
- Assisted living residents enjoy maintenance free living, which gives them more time to focus on what they love most.

- Long-term Care Insurance can often be used to pay for assisted living services. Although every long-term care policy is different, many can be used to pay for assisted living.
