Best Assisted Living in Kansas City

Though we will be looking at the best ALFs in Kansas City, Missouri, later in this series, currently we’re exploring Kansas City, Kansas. The two cities, nicknamed KCMO and KCK respectively, form the Kansas City metropolitan area. At present, KCMO is considered the more culturally diverse and lively community, but KCK is striving to catch up and already has an appeal of its own, in addition to its proximity to KCMO.
