Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Glen Ellyn

  • Glen Ellyn’s seniors have easy access to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, listed by S. News & World Report as the top-ranking medical center in Illinois. AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center GlenOaks, another high-performing facility, is less than 3 miles away in Glendale Heights. The city also holds a remarkably high number of geriatric medicine specialists.
  • Seniors in Glen Ellyn can enjoy the beauty of all four seasons with average precipitation levels, mild summers and cold, snowy winters. Temperatures range from 17°F to 84°F throughout the year.
  • The overall cost of living in this city is 25.5% higher than the U.S. average. However, seniors here can access financial counseling and learn about financial assistance options through DuPage County’s Senior Services.
