What to Consider About Assisted Living in Buffalo Grove

Buffalo Grove is a small village in Illinois that has a population of a little more than 40,000 people, about 14 percent of whom are over the age of 65. To support the senior population, the village is home to three assisted living facilities. Seniors who want more options can look a little farther out from the city proper, where they'll find an additional 24 facilities. 

There are four types of assisted living facilities in Illinois, including Assisted Living Establishments and Shared Housing Establishments, which are regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health; Sheltered Care Facilities, which are licensed under the Nursing Home Care Act; and Supportive Living Facilities, which are certified by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Buffalo Grove

  • Buffalo Grove has relatively mild summers with July highs averaging in the low-80s, which may appeal to seniors who are sensitive to excessive heat. Winters are cold and snowy, however, with lows around 15 degrees and about 38 inches of snowfall annually.  

  • The cost of living in Buffalo Grove is nearly 25 percent higher than the U.S. average. While this is mainly due to the high cost of housing, seniors can also expect to spend about 23 percent more on transportation costs, 10 percent more on groceries, 7 percent more on other goods and services and about 2 percent more on health care. 

  • Buffalo Grove has a low crime rate, which may provide peace of mind for seniors and their families. The overall crime rate is 79 percent lower than the Illinois average and 81 percent lower than the national average.

  • Transportation in Buffalo Grove is provided courtesy of Pace Suburban Bus, which provides fixed routes throughout the city. Seniors can apply for a reduced fare permit. Dial-A-Ride is also available for seniors.  

  • The Buffalo Grove area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Northwest Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Buffalo Grove has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Buffalo Grove Park District's Club 50, an organization that provides seniors with social and educational programs, as well as one senior center.
