    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Des Plaines

    This bustling suburb of Chicago is located just north of O'Hare International Airport, giving seniors who love to travel easy access to non-stop flights to hundreds of destinations. Of the approximately 58,000 Des Plaines residents, 18.6 percent are age 65 and older. To serve seniors who need support with the normal activities of daily living (ADLs) while still maintaining as independent a lifestyle as possible, Des Plaines offers three assisted living facilities. Seniors have another 37 assisted living communities to choose from nearby.

    In Des Plaines as in all of Illinois, assisted living communities (ALFs) are overseen by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). ALFs must  provide residents with private, single occupancy apartments with a small kitchen and private bathing facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Des Plaines

    • Des Plaines has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Frisbie Center, a 20,000-square foot facility that offers more than 65 different programsand services. Seniors who are city residents enjoy reduced taxicab rates when traveling within the corporate city limits.
    • Seniors with respiratory conditions should be aware that Des Plaines’ location in Cook County means a very poor air quality rating. The American Lung Association grades Cook County an “F” for high levels of ozone pollution.
    • The Des Plaines area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Although the overall cost of living in Des Plains is about 18 percent higher than the national average, seniors pay less for groceries, utilities and healthcare here compared to the U.S. average. Housing and transportation costs are higher.
    • Des Plaines has low crime rates compared to the U.S. averages. The city’s violent crime ranking of 10.9 is considerably lower than the U.S. average of 22.7. Property crime in Des Plaines ranks 21.1 out of 100, whereas the national average is 35.4.
    • Winters can be cold in Des Plains, with a January low of 17 degrees and an average of 36 inches of snow annually. Summers can be excessively humid, and July’s average high temperature is 84 degrees. Active seniors looking for a comfortable year-round climate may be disappointed in this region’s weather patterns.
