Assisted Living in Chicago, Illinois

Situated along the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago is a city known for its diverse cultural heritage. With a population of approximately 2,746,388, including around 348,791 seniors, it’s the most populous city in Illinois. Senior Chicagoans have access to some of the state’s best hospitals, including Northwestern Memorial Hospital. In addition, older adults can visit museums and parks, take tours, attend local attractions, shop and indulge in various cuisines. Even though the overall cost of living is 6.9% more expensive than the national average, seniors may be able to save money on groceries, health care, housing and utilities.

Assisted living facilities help seniors with daily tasks, including personal care, housekeeping, laundry and transportation. Seniors who are unable to live independently but don’t require 24-hour nursing home-level medical care may find assisted living an attractive option. Chicago seniors pay about $4,825 per month for assisted living, which is a little higher than the Illinois monthly average of $4,488 and the national median of $4,500.
