What to Consider About Assisted Living in Grayslake

The Illinois Department of Public Health licenses and sets minimum standards for assisted living facilities in Grayslake and the rest of the state. Through this agency, individuals can find detailed information on the rules facilities follow in relation to building requirements, scope of care and staffing. The department also has an online complaint form and a 24-hour hotline. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Grayslake

 

  • Grayslake is listed on the AARP Age-Friendly Network, indicating that it’s a welcoming place for residents of all ages. It has a livability score of 55, putting it in the top half of U.S. communities, and it rates particularly well in metrics such as transportation, health and environment.
  • The air quality in the Grayslake region is relatively poor, with the American Lung Association giving the region a failing grade for ozone pollution. This indicates a high number of high-ozone days, which may be a consideration for those with heart or breathing conditions. To help residents stay safe and comfortable, assisted living communities typically organize indoor activities throughout the year, and many have air purification systems.
  • Illinois’s state income tax laws are friendly toward retirees, which may help older adults afford assisted living fees in Grayslake. Social Security benefits, pension income and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts are tax-exempt. Property and sales taxes are among the highest in the nation, but those in residential care may be less burdened by these expenses.
  • Grayslake residents aged 60 and over can obtain transportation services through Ride Lake County, a Dial-a-Ride service that provides curb-to-curb transportation. This service operates 7 days per week between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., and seniors can make reservations up to 7 days in advance.   
  • While there are no hospitals in Grayslake, a dozen hospitals are located within a 20-mile radius of the city in communities such as Zion and Kenosha, WI. Local health care costs are in line with national norms, and there are about 290 doctors per capita versus 210 nationally, which may result in short wait times to see primary care providers and specialists.
  • July is the hottest and most humid month in Grayslake with daytime temperatures in the low-80s, which is cool compared to statewide norms. Winters are chilly with lows in the teens, and the city gets about 43 inches of annual snowfall, including an average of 13 inches in January. Assisted living facilities typically have individual climate controls in residents’ apartments, helping them stay comfortable regardless of the season.
