What to Consider About Assisted Living in Glenview

Illinois’s Division of Assisted Living licenses and monitors assisted living facilities in Glenview. It enforces rules regarding care planning, recreational activities, services and staffing to ensure a consistently high standard of care for residents.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Glenview

  • Glenview’s tax laws are very favorable to seniors, which may help older adults’ retirement dollars stretch further. Nearly all types of retirement income are tax-exempt, including Social Security benefits, withdrawals from retirement savings accounts and public and private pension income. While Illinois has some of the highest property taxes in the nation, older adults may avoid this expense by moving to assisted living.  
  • Glenview is a relatively expensive place to live, which may be a consideration for some older adults with fixed incomes. The overall cost of living is roughly 35% higher than the national average and over 40% higher than the state median. This is primarily due to high housing costs, which may yield a higher return on investment for those who sell their homes to move to assisted living.  
  • Crime is an uncommon occurrence in Glenview, making the village well-suited to older adults who want to maintain as much independence as possible. Most recent data shows that violent crime occurs at a rate of about 105 incidents per 100,000 people, which is well below the state and national rates of 407 and 379, respectively. Property crime is more common but still occurs at a rate markedly lower than in similarly-sized cities.  
  • Glenview’s year-round high temperatures range from the low 30s in the winter to the low 80s in the summer, making the village a good option for those who enjoy experiencing all four seasons. The village gets 36 inches of rain and 36 inches of snow annually. To help older adults complete necessary errands during the snowy months, many assisted living facilities offer transportation services.   
  • Glenview is home to Glenbrook Hospital, an award-winning facility that has been recognized for America’s 250 Best Hospitals Award and America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Surgery Award. Health care tends to be affordable here, with related expenses such as doctor’s office visits and dental services coming in about 6% below the national median.
