Guide to Kansas Nursing Homes

Learn why thousands of seniors are retiring in Kansas nursing homes each year.

The state of Kansas has almost 350 nursing homes, which may seem like an intimidating number at first. Each nursing home has an average of 75 beds, which allows each facility to have a more personal touch and ensures that residents will get the attention and care that they need. Another great thing to note is that the average Kansas nursing home has only a 74% occupancy rating. This means that there is always availability, so you can afford to take your time and choose the right nursing home without worrying about others rushing to get the same room.

While nursing homes in Kansas are prevalent, choosing the right fit for yourself or your loved one is not as easy as just finding a place close to home. There are many things to consider when searching for senior care, and this is especially true of nursing homes. For instance, some nursing homes adhere to strict schedules when it comes to patient medication, while others are taking on a new methodology, of letting residents take their medication on a schedule that lets them sleep through the night and wake when they choose.
