What to Consider About Assisted Living in Glen Ellyn

Glen Ellyn is a village in DuPage County, Illinois, just 24 miles west of Chicago on the shore of Lake Ellyn. This suburb has a population of just over 28,000, and 14.6 percent are seniors. These seniors can choose from two assisted living facilities (ALFs) within city limits and 31 in the surrounding areas. All ALFs in the state are regulated by the Illinois Department of Health Division of Assisted Living which defines them as residences that provide room and board for at least three unrelated adults along with community-based residential care. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Glen Ellyn

  • The cost of living in Glen Ellyn is 37.9 percent higher than the national average. This is primarily due to high housing and transportation costs. Groceries and health care expenses are below average, which may provide some relief to seniors on a budget. 
     
  • Seniors who are intolerant to extreme weather conditions may find it difficult to live in Glen Ellyn as temperatures here can vary greatly. Summers are warm with highs of 84 degrees Fahrenheit in July, and winter temperatures can dip to 16 degrees in January. Snowfall is 30 inches annually, and the area gets about 38 inches of rain per year.
     
  • Seniors can feel safe living in Glen Ellyn as the crime rate here is relatively low. The city is safer than 69 percent of other U.S. cities, and both violent and property crimes are well below average with scores of 16.8 and 21.8 out of 100 (high crime).
     
  • Seniors who don’t drive can receive rides from Ride DuPage, a program that offers subsidized transportation 24/7 and the Pace Bus
  • Illinois exempts Social Security benefits and almost all other retirement income from taxation. This can help seniors maximize their retirement income.
