Derby Assisted Living is a charming assisted living community in Derby, Kansas. It is within classy Sedgwick County which is part of the Sunflower State.
We strive to bring a community of people together who will take the best possible care of our residents, keeping in mind that this is our workplace but it is their home.
We do our best to create an environment that is supportive and nurturing. One that provides the best possible care and best quality of life with the highest level of independence all while keeping comfort in mind.
We encourage our staff to build relationships with our residents. It’s not uncommon to see the Executive Director serving coffee or meals, for the cook to come out after he has finished serving a meal and check on the food or sit down and joke with residents. You will be asked about your family and interests by all levels of staff. There is a lot of relationship building that happens here between the staff and residents.
As part of the Derby Assisted Living tight knit community you will quickly feel like you are a part of the family. Our staff is dedicated to building friendships with everyone who calls this home and ensuring that all their needs are met from social to medical care.

24 hour licensed care staff are available with nurses scheduled seven days a week and all medical professionals on call 24/7. No matter the time of day, we are here to meet your needs.
We understand that every resident is an individual. They have their own interests, life story, and health needs. We take the time to sit down and customize your care plan based on what you need.
Level of care varies with each residents and we strive to provide exactly what you need should it be help showering, dressing, or regulating medication. Our list of provided care is extensive and customizable.
You may not need all the nursing care services available. You ming not need any. Either way, you are still welcome to make this home. Should you need additional care in the future, we are here to help.
24 hour licensed care staff is available. The Medical Director makes rounds regularly. Our Nurse Practitioner and Physicians Assistants are also available as needed.
