    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Evanston

    Evanston is a city of around 75,000 people that's only around a ten-mile drive from downtown Chicago. Around 10,000, or 14 percent of these 75,000 residents are aged 65 and over. Some are in need of assisted living facilities to help with the tasks of daily living like grooming, housekeeping and medication management. 

    In Evanston, like the rest of Illinois, assisted living communities are the responsibility of The Division of Assisted Living. There are two such facilities in Evanston and almost 40 in nearby communities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Evanston

    • The Evanston area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Presence Saint Francis Hospital and the North Shore University Evanston Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Evanston has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Levy Senior Center, an organization that provides local seniors with a variety of resources, including fitness classes and computer training. 
    • Seniors who live in Evanston, Illinois, don't have their Social Security payments taxed by the state. This may be appealing for seniors on a low income as it could leave them with more spare income. 
    • Weather could be too harsh for some seniors in the Evanston area as there's an average of 38 inches of snow per year, compared to the national average of 26. 
    • The cost of living in Evanston could be too expensive for seniors on a budget. While the overall cost of living is around 35 percent more expensive than the national average, healthcare is around six percent cheaper. 
    • Violent crimes reported in Evanston are considerably lower than the national average. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the lowest crime rates and 100 the highest, Evanston scores 15 in comparison to the national average of 22.7. Property crime is reported at a slightly higher rate than the national average at 35.8 compared to 35.4.
