What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chatham

Chatham is a charming village located on the outskirts of Springfield, Illinois. Residents can enjoy quiet living with all the conveniences of shopping, dining and entertainment just a short drive away. Senior citizens who are looking for a calm and relaxing place to call home should consider Chatham.

For seniors who wish to remain as independent as possible, but require a little assistance in maintaining their lifestyle, an assisted living community in Chatham is a good option. Assisted living facilities (ALFs) in Illinois are regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health to ensure residents' needs are met. There are two ALFs in Chatham, five in Springfield and one in Rochester. These communities provide personal care services that include activities of daily living. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chatham

  • The cost of living in Chatham is 7.7 percent lower than the U.S. average, making it an ideal choice for seniors who rely on a fixed income.
  • Chatham receives an average of 201 sunny days per year, which is slightly lower than the national average of 205 sunny days annually. Summers are moderate while the winter months can be quite chilly with an average low in January of 19 degrees Fahrenheit. While the warm and sunny summers are enjoyable, such cold winter weather might be difficult to spend time outside.
  • Illinois is a tax-friendly state for seniors because it exempts retirement income, including Social Security retirement income, pension income and income from retirement savings accounts, which can be very beneficial to seniors.
  • The Chatham area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Springfield.
  • Chatham has a low crime rate. It's 82 percent safer than other U.S. cities, so seniors should feel safe in the area. 
  • Chatham has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Senior Citizen Center, which provides activities and programs for senior citizens in Chatham. A community park is also available for those who enjoy taking walks and spending time outdoors.
