St. Louis is one of the largest cities in Missouri, located along the banks of the Mississippi River where it is home to the iconic Gateway Arch. The city is also known for its rich Italian heritage and delicious food in The Hill District. Plenty of shopping and entertainment options, including the world-famous St. Louis Zoo, offer seniors and their families a wealth of things to do. Out of the city's 315,000 residents, 12% are seniors aged 65 and older. 

Assisted living costs in St. Louis average $3,848 per month, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2019, a figure notably higher than the Missouri state average of $2,881. Compared with other senior care services, such as nursing home care, which averages $5,810 and homemaker services, ranging from $4,195 to 4,385 per month, assisted living may be a viable financial option for seniors. Adult daycare services are the least expensive option, however, at about $1,831 per month. A cost of living nearly 20 points lower than the national median and exemption from state taxes for Social Security income and pensions may make this area attractive for the elderly. 

We've put together a list of the top ten assisted facilities in the St. Louis metro area. Read on to see if one is right for you.
