Residents living in licensed Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) in Missouri are able to exit the building with “minimal assistance”. These rules concerning being able to exit the building with “minimal assistance” do not apply during periods of recovery or while under the care of a licensed hospice agency, and we have staff here 24/7 to assist with the care and safety needs of our residents.

As you can see, we can meet the needs of almost any individual who is not bedfast or highly confused. And we do all this at a cost that is about half that of other options available in an atmosphere conducive to wellness, socialization, and independence.
