What To Consider About Assisted Living in Bensenville

The Division of Assisted Living, a branch of the Illinois Department of Public Health, is responsible for monitoring licensed facilities throughout the state. It also regulates assisted living facility owners and administrators, which includes ensuring they receive licenses to operate only after passing the state’s competence test.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bensenville

  • Although crime statistics can never be called good, Bensenville’s exceptionally low property and violent crime rates are enviable. The chances of becoming a victim of property crime are half the national average and significantly below the norm for Illinois. Violent crime figures are even more impressive, with the chances of being a victim at 1 in 1,107, compared to the state average of 1 in 239.
  • The Ride DuPage Transportation Program provides affordable transportation for adults aged 65 and older. There’s a $2 flag pull and then $1 per mile, with no fee for the senior’s first companion. Although distances are technically unlimited, they’re at the discretion of the individual provider. The service is only available to Bensenville residents whose submitted application forms have been approved.
  • The average cost of living index in Bensenville is high compared to the Illinois median, primarily due to the cost of housing and health care. 
  • Bensenville seniors only need to travel a few minutes to find excellent health care facilities, such as the Wood Dale Medical Center and VNA Health Care. Nearby Chicago is also home to several world-class facilities, including the Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Rush University Medical Center.
  • Bensenville’s climate can be cold and snowy in the winter, and summers can be humid, with temperatures averaging 84 degrees. Although May to August is a rainy season, Bensenville averages 3.7 inches of rain per month. In contrast, the summer months also see a significant amount of sun — over 15 hours per day in the height of the season.
  • Sales tax is high when compared to other states, but Illinois doesn’t tax retirement income, including Social Security benefits and income from retirement savings accounts.

Paying for Assisted Living in Bensenville

The 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey findings shows that the average fee for assisted living in Bensenville is $4,825 per month. When compared to the state and national averages of $4,488 and $4,500, respectively, Bensenville seniors should budget an additional $337 per month.

The Cost of Assisted Living in Nearby Cities
