    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Crete

    Despite being located just 35 miles south of Chicago, the village of Crete, Illinois, is home to forest preserves, golf courses and equestrian facilities that give it a semi-rural feel. About 8,000 people call Crete home, and nearly 19 percent of them are seniors. There are 23 assisted living facilities located in and around Crete to accommodate the population.

    Assisted living facilities in Crete must follow Illinois law, which mandates certain staffing requirements and other health and safety measures. The Illinois Department of Public Health is responsible for licensing and overseeing these facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Crete

    • Crete is generally an affordable place to live. Seniors who move there can expect to pay less in grocery costs than average, with Crete's prices ranking at about 94 compared to the Illinois average of 97 and the U.S. average of 100. Health spending is right at the national average of 100, and transportation costs are slightly higher at 106.
    • Seniors on a fixed budget may also benefit from the state's retirement-friendly tax policies. Social Security, pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts are generally tax-exempt in the state.
    • Crete's crime rate is fairly average for the state of Illinois. Residents have about a 1 in 59 chance of becoming the victim of a property crime, while citizens across the state have a 1 in 50 chance. Crete is safer than 33 percent of cities across the United States.
    • The weather in Crete tends to be moderate, although winters can be cold with lows in the mid-teens. It gets about 26 inches of snow a year, which may make it difficult for seniors to walk or enjoy outdoor activities during the winter. Summer highs tend to be in the 80s.
    • Crete has no/few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals located in Flossmoor and Olympia Fields.
    • The American Lung Association has given Will County, which includes Crete, a "B" rating. Seniors with respiratory issues may need to occasionally stay indoors on high ozone days, but the air is generally safe.
