What to Consider About Assisted Living in Harrisburg

Harrisburg is the county seat of Saline County, Illinois, located about 110 miles southeast of St. Louis, Missouri. The city is called the "Gateway to the Shawnee National Forest" and is famous for the Ohio River flood of 1937 that devastated the town. Nowadays, Harrisburg is part of the Illinois–Indiana–Kentucky tri-state area and is the principal city in the Harrisburg Micropolitan Statistical Area.

An estimated 17.6 percent of its nearly 8,737 residents are age 65 or older, and there are two assisted living facilities (ALFs) in Harrisburg to serve them with 64 other ALFs in nearby communities.

In Harrisburg, as in the rest of Illinois, these facilities must be licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health, and they must fulfill requirements affecting the residents' safety and the operation of the ALF.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Harrisburg

  • Harrisburg's overall cost of living is 26 points below the U.S. average of 100 and 28 points lower than the Illinois state average of 102. Grocery costs are generally lower than average at 92.9, which may help seniors on a fixed budget. Health costs are above average by 14 points, so families on a fixed income may need to adjust their budgets to live in Harrisburg.
  • Illinois has very senior-friendly tax laws that can help save money. All retirement income is exempt from taxation, including Social Security, pensions and retirement accounts. Purchases are subject to city and state sales taxes.
  • Harrisburg's violent crime rate is 15 points above the national average of 31.1. The property crime rate is slightly lower at 33 when compared to the national rating of 38.1.
  • Harrisburg has temperate weather with 47 inches of rain per year, which is 8 inches higher than the U.S. average. Harrisburg only gets four inches of snow per year, as compared to 26 inches across the nation. The summertime high temperature is below 90 degrees, and the winter low drops to 23.
  • The Harrisburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Harrisburg Medical Center and SIH Hospital, in the event of a medical emergency or illness.
  • Seniors craving a dose of local culture should visit Stonefort Depot Museum to see its historical exhibits.
