    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Algonquin

    Algonquin, Illinois, is a suburb of Chicago, some 40 miles northwest of the Loop. Originally established in 1890 as a small river community, the village has grown into a major commercial center. An estimated 10.7 percent of its nearly 31,017 residents are age 65 or older, and two assisted living facilities (ALFs) are in Algonquin to help seniors perform daily tasks. Nine other ALFs are in surrounding communities.

    In Algonquin, as in the rest of Illinois, an ALF must be licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health to house and supervise seniors, and it has to fulfill various regulations dealing with the residents' safety and the ALF's operation.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Algonquin

    • Algonquin's overall cost of living of 122 is 22 percent higher than the U.S. median of 100 and 20 points more than the Illinois state average of 102. Grocery costs are below average at 93.9, which may help families on a fixed budget save money. Health costs are above average by only seven points, but housing costs are 131. Families may need to restructure their budgets to place a loved one in an ALF in Algonquin.
    • Seniors age 65 and over can enjoy the lenient Illinois tax policies exempting all retirement income from taxation, including Social Security, pensions and retirement accounts. Funds that would have gone to state income tax can be used for healthcare.
    • Algonquin is no stranger to precipitation, receiving an average of 37 inches of rain and 29 inches of snow annually, which is close to the U.S. average of 39 and 26 inches, respectively. The temperature spans 70 degrees over the course of a year, from summertime highs topping off at 84 to winter lows bottoming out at 13.
    • The violent crime rate of 11.1 in Algonquin is beneath the U.S. rate of 31.1 on a scale with 100 as the most dangerous, and the property crime rate is low at 26.1 compared to 38.1, the national average. Seniors in ALFs have extra security with the safeguards already in place.
    • The Algonquin area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital and Advocate Sherman Hospital, in the event of a medical emergency or illness.
    • Kane County, which includes Algonquin, has been given a "D" rating for air quality by the American Lung Association for its high ozone levels. Seniors with respiratory concerns may want to remain indoors during high-ozone days.
