    What to Consider About Assisted Living in East Peoria

    Located just across the Illinois River from Peoria, the town of East Peoria, Illinois, is a thriving metropolitan community. Almost 23,000 people live in East Peoria, and about 20 percent of them are seniors age 65 and older. Two assisted living facilities operate in town, and an additional 16 are located in nearby communities.

    Assisted living facilities in East Peoria are regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health, which requires certain licensing and operating standards. They must provide assistance with meals, cleaning and laundry, as well as maintain an emergency communication system for resident safety.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in East Peoria

    • Seniors on a fixed budget may appreciate East Peoria's low cost of living, which is significantly lower than both Illinois and United States averages. Groceries, transportation and utility costs are low. Health spending is slightly high but still fairly close to the U.S. average.
    • The crime rate in East Peoria is somewhat high. The rate of violent crime is about the same as the U.S. and Illinois averages and is lower than the rest of the Peoria metro area.
