Hinsdale is a welcoming village of about 17,000 residents, nearly 14% of whom are seniors. It’s among the safest communities in the Chicago metro with minimal crime, and high access to health care appeals to older adults and those obtaining ongoing treatment. This affluent community has a high cost of living with housing prices considerably higher than state and national rates, but moving to assisted living can help older adults avoid this expense.  

Assisted living facilities provide comfortable, maintenance-free living for seniors who need help with some daily living activities. These residential communities have screened caregivers and staff who provide help with personal care, meal preparation, housekeeping and laundry services and regularly scheduled social and recreational activities. On average, seniors in Hinsdale pay $4,950 per month for this type of care, which is high compared to state and national averages.   

This guide provides more information on the benefits and drawbacks of living in Hinsdale, along with an overview of the cost of assisted living and other senior care options.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hinsdale

Assisted living facilities in Hinsdale, as well as the rest of the state, are regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health. This department has an initial and annual licensing process to ensure compliance with regulations regarding minimum and maximum residency requirements, disaster preparedness, staff qualifications and resident care.   

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hinsdale

  • Seniors in Hinsdale don’t pay state income taxes on most forms of retirement income, including Social Security benefits, government and private pension income and money from retirement savings accounts, which may help them afford local assisted living expenses. 
  • Hinsdale offers high access to affordable health care, which may benefit those managing ongoing health conditions. Doctor’s office visits, dental care and inpatient hospital stays cost about 2% less here than in the average U.S. city, and there are about 400 doctors per 100,000 people versus the national rate of 210. AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center Hinsdale is located in the heart of Hinsdale and is a nationally recognized teaching hospital.  
  • Hinsdale has three Metra commuter train depots, including West HinsdaleHinsdale and Highlands, providing convenient access to medical facilities and cultural amenities in Chicago and the surrounding communities. The Regional Transportation Authority operates bus services throughout the region and has programs to help older adults use the public transportation system. Metra and RTA have discounted fare programs for military personnel, older adults and Medicare cardholders. 
  • Hinsdale is among the costliest cities in Illinois to live in, with an overall cost of living that’s more than double the state and national averages. This is primarily driven by high housing costs, which seniors can avoid by living in a residential care community.  
  • Crime is very unusual in Hinsdale, which may make the community a good option for those who want to live in the Chicago area. In 2019, the violent crime rate was 28 incidents per 100,000 people, a fraction of the state rate of 407. Property crime is more prevalent but still occurs at a much lower rate than in the state and nation as a whole. Hinsdale is a safe option compared to similarly sized and nearby cities.  
  • As is typical of the northeastern region of Illinois, Hinsdale has a relatively cool climate. Year-round temperatures range from 16 to 84 degrees, which is cooler than most Illinois cities. To help prevent boredom during the winter months, assisted living facilities organize holiday events and indoor social and recreational activities.
