What to Consider About Assisted Living in Godfrey

Godfrey, Illinois, is located along the east side of the Mississippi River and was named after sea captain Benjamin Godfrey who moved to the area in 1832 before building the area’s first church and first women’s college. Today, Godfrey’s senior population, which makes up more than 20% of its total population of 18,000 people, can reminisce about days gone by as they stroll through the city’s parks and museums.

There are three assisted living facilities in Godfrey to assist seniors who need support with their personal care, along with 59 additional facilities located in the surrounding areas. Assisted living facilities in Godfrey, as is the case in all of Illinois, are licensed by the Illinois Department of Health. These facilities are known as either assisted living establishments, shared housing establishments, sheltered care facilities or supportive living facilities depending upon the number of residents they serve and the level of care they provide.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Godfrey

  • Godfrey’s cost of living is 91.5, lower than both the state average of 101.5 and the national average of 100. Despite the lower cost of living in the area, seniors will pay more for healthcare and transportation, which are both higher than the average at 102.6 and 105.7, respectively. This might be a concern for seniors with chronic health conditions as well as seniors who no longer drive.
  • Illinois does not tax Social Security benefits, pensions or retirement savings account income, which could allow Godfrey seniors to allocate more money toward their facility costs.
  • The Godfrey area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Alton.
  • Godfrey’s low crime rates may make seniors feel more secure, both at home and when venturing out into the city. The city has a violent crime rate of 10.9 and a property crime rate of 27.7, both notably lower than the respective U.S. averages of 22.7 and 34.5, respectively.
  • Seniors with chronic conditions such as COPD or asthma may find that living in Godfrey does not aggravate their symptoms. The city has an air quality rating of 64 out of 100 (best), six points higher than the national average of 58.
  • Temperatures in Godfrey range between 21 and 88 degrees throughout the year. Seniors may want to ensure that prospective facilities have individualized climate controls to keep them comfortable in extreme temperatures.
