    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Downers Grove

    The vibrant village of Downers Grove is located just 22 miles west of Chicago and contains a lovely mix of forest preserves, residential areas and a thriving downtown area to offer residents a little bit of everything. About 16.5 percent of the nearly 50,000 residents are senior citizens, and 31 assisted living facilities have opened in and around the village to support the community.

    In Downers Grove, as in the rest of Illinois, assisted living facilities (ALFs) are required to meet certain standards and provide certain services, including food service and assistance with cleaning and laundry. These communities are licensed and regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Downers Grove

    • Everyday expenses in Downers Grove tend to be affordable, which can be helpful for seniors on a fixed income. Groceries, utilities and health costs are all less expensive than average. Transportation and housing costs can be quite high.
    • Weather in Downers Grove is generally pleasant during the warmer months, with average summer highs in the 80s. However, winter months can see average lows of around 16 degrees. The area receives about 30 inches of snow in an average year, which can lead to difficult, icy conditions.
    • The Downers Grove area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Downers Grove has excellent public transportation options for seniors who no longer drive. A Metra commuter train stop provides convenient access to the city of Chicago, and numerous Pace Bus routes run through the village and connect it to surrounding suburbs. Seniors can receive discounted fares on both options with an RTA Reduced Fare Permit.
    • The crime rate in Downers Grove is significantly lower than state and national averages, making is a generally secure place to retire. It is safer than 65 percent of cities in Illinois and 79 percent of communities in the United States as a whole. Property crime is the most common type of crime in this community.
    • Downers Grove is located in DuPage County, which generally has poor air quality due to high ozone and particle pollution levels. Seniors with respiratory health issues may need to stay indoors on particularly bad days.
