What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bloomingdale

Assisted living facilities in Bloomingdale are licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health, Division of Assisted Living. The division has a range of regulations and policies to support a consistently high standard of care, including rules regarding licensing requirements, mandatory services and infectious disease control. It also has protocols for handling complaints of abuse or neglect.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bloomingdale

  • Bloomingdale is among the more expensive Illinois communities to live in, which may impact the quality of life of those with limited income. The overall cost of living exceeds the national average by about 13% and the state average by nearly 10%. Because the village’s housing costs are high, assisted living may be comparatively affordable for seniors.  
  • Bloomingdale seniors don’t pay state income taxes on Social Security income, public or private pensions or withdrawals from retirement accounts. Illinois has high property and sales taxes compared to other states, but older adults may be able to avoid these expenses by living in a residential facility.   
  • Bloomingdale’s property crime rate is a little high compared to the national average and similarly sized states and may be a consideration for older adults who live alone. However, the village’s violent crime rate is very low, occurring at a rate of about 87 incidents per 100,000 people. This is considerably lower than the national and state rates of 379 and 407, respectively.  
  • Older adults in Bloomingdale have multiple public transportation options available. The village is served by the Chicago Transit Authority, which operates a fixed-route bus service throughout the region. There’s also a 495-mile Metra system that serves 230 stations in the Bloomingdale region and surrounding counties, as well as two PACE transportation services for older adults, including Dial-A-Ride paratransit bus service and fixed-route bus service.  
  • Bloomingdale’s weather is generally comfortable throughout the year, providing a pleasant environment for the retirement years. Summer high temperatures are in the mid-80s and winter lows are in the teens, and humidity levels are fairly low. The community sees about 33 inches of annual snowfall, about a third of which falls in January. To keep residents busy through the cold months, assisted living facilities often host indoor recreational classes and events.  
  • Bloomingdale seniors enjoy high access to health care. The village has about 398 doctors per 100,000 people compared to the national average of 210, which may shorten the amount of time it takes to see a specialist or primary care doctor.
