    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Arcola

    Known as the entrance to Illinois Amish Country, the small town of Arcola has a strong agricultural industry focused largely on the production of broom corn. Despite having only about 3,000 residents, Arcola has two assisted living facilities to serve its senior citizens, and two others are located in nearby communities.

    These facilities are regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health, which handles licensing and inspections for all assisted living facilities in the state. Illinois has strict regulations for assisted living facilities, such as requiring them to check employee backgrounds prior to hiring and provide security and emergency alert measures, to help ensure residents' safety.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Arcola

    • Arcola is generally an affordable place to live. Grocery and health costs are ranked and 102 and 105, which slightly above the national average of 100. This may be difficult for seniors on a fixed budget. Utility and transportation costs are lower than average at 98 and 74, respectively.
    • Arcola has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Mattoon.
    • The crime rate in Arcola is generally low, which may help seniors feel safe in their community. It is about 52 percent lower than the national average of 2,745 crime per 100,000 people. Residents have about a one in 76 chance of becoming a victim of any crime, and property crime is much more common than violent crime.
    • Seniors looking for a moderate climate with distinct seasons may like Arcola. Summers can be warm and humid, with typical highs in the 80s. Winter lows can dip into the teens. The Arcola area only gets about 17 inches of snow in an average year.
    • Illinois is generally a tax-friendly state for retirees. Income from social security, pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts are not taxed. Groceries, medicines and other essentials are subject to sales tax, however.
    • Although Arcola's small size means that arts and culture opportunities are somewhat limited, there is still plenty to do. The annual Broom Corn Festival features live music, parades and other entertainment. Seniors who love art will also appreciate the Walldog Murals, a unique project that has created 15 beautiful murals throughout the town of Arcola.
