Housing Options


There are many options for senior living today, ranging from independent living, to assisted living and nursing homes. 

Independent Living – Some seniors desire to remain in their own homes.  To enhance safe and accessible home living, many community and in-home services are available in Sedgwick County, including minor home repair and safety evaluations.  For those who seek a change in residence, an array of senior focused apartments, duplexes, and condominiums are available, both on a private pay and a subsidized basis.  Amenities and services provided can vary, and some options may involve applications and wait lists.
