Assisted Living Tidbits
St. Louis has historically been one of our more under-represented cities on our site in terms of the number of assisted living facilities we have listed, so we were excited to see this listing come in from Autumn View Gardens!
The City of St. Louis is the 2nd largest city in Missouri, and is an independent city. Currently (at last count) there are 356,587 people living in St. Louis, and of these residents, 41,177 of them are seniors, or over the age of 65. This is 11.6 percent of the population, which is exactly one percent lower than our national average of 12.6 percent. Nonetheless, there is a large senior population in the City of St. Louis, and thankfully, there are some good and noteworthy senior services, long-term care and assisted living facilities in the metro area.
We visited the official website for the City of St. Louis, and we found a page dedicated to the local Area Agency on Aging for St. Louis. "The Agency's objectives are to secure and maintain maximum independence and dignity in a home environment and encourage economic, social and personal independence of older persons by providing opportunities for employment, socialization, and volunteer activities in the community." The agency is located at 1520 Market Street , Room 4086, Saint Louis, Missouri and the phone number is (314) 612-5918.
For information on home-delivered meals (services are partially funded by the St. Louis Area Agency on Aging), please call the Agency on Aging at 314-612-5918 or the St. Louis Senior Center at 314-645-3477. This service is available weekdays.
Great questions we have received from our visitors about Autumn View and assisted living in general:
My mother is living in a residential center now, but she needs assisted living ASAP. She has no money so she would need help from medicaid. Can you help me or advise me what to do. She is not doing very well and I am worried about her being alone. Please help.
Q; I wanted information on the assisted living and how old and the income requirements for Autumn View Gardens - Shirley
