What to Consider About Assisted Living in Batavia
Batavia, one of Chicago's suburbs, is known as "The Windmill City" because six American-style windmill manufacturing companies called it home during the latter part of the 19th Century. Today, the city has a population of 26,391, and 13.1 percent of it consists of seniors 65 and older, who can choose from 56 assisted living facilities. Two lie within Batavia and an additional 54 are in communities nearby. They're regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health, which requires any community registered as an assisted living facility to provide its residents with a private apartment. This helps the state's aging population remain as independent as possible.
