    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Dolton

    Dolton, Illinois, located just outside of Chicago, has a modest population of 22,891, seniors age 55 and older make up 26.5 percent of the total. To accommodate seniors, the Dolton area has 36 assisted living facilities, one in Dolton proper and 34 more located in nearby communities.  Assisted living facilities in Dolton, and the rest of Illinois, are licensed and regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Dolton

    • Dolton seniors can take advantage of the Illinois Department of Aging's Free Ride Permit on any of the Dolton and Chicago area's public transportation systems. This includes Dolton's PACE bus service, as well as buses and trains operated by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and the Regional Transit Authority. Seniors who need door-to-door transportation can use the PACE bus paratransit service.

    • While Illinois is considered tax-friendly for retirees because there's no state income tax, the state does impose a 1 percent sales tax on food and medications. Local sales taxes of up 1.25 percent add to that amount, so seniors could end up paying 2.25 percent sales tax when purchasing necessities.

    • Dolton's winter weather may be a bit too harsh for some seniors. In January, low temperatures can dip down to 18 degrees, and snow is common. However, the weather the rest of the year is fairly mild. Summer temperatures hover in the low-to-mid-80s, which makes it easy to enjoy outdoor activities.

    • Thanks to its proximity to Chicago, Dolton's cost of living is a bit higher than other parts of Illinois. The cost of groceries is 8 percent higher than the national average and 11 percent higher than the state average. However, health-care costs are on par with the state and only 1 percent higher than the national average, which might make it easier for low-income seniors to find affordable options.

    • Dolton area seniors should take extra precautions when traveling outside of their community. The city's overall crime rate is 31 percent higher than the national average, which means that Dolton is only safer than 13 percent of the city's in the United States.

    • The Dolton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Dolton Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Dolton

    In Illinois, seniors who need help covering monthly assisted living costs can apply for two of the state's Medicaid waiver programs — the Supportive Living Program and the Managed Long-Term Services and Supports program. An optional state supplement program is also available to low-income seniors.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Illinois page.

    • Veterans Benefits
    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage
