    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Huntley

    Huntley, IL, is a village in the metro area surrounding Chicago. While it doesn't have any assisted living facilities within its city limits, it does straddle two separate counties — McHenry and Kane — which both have dozens of ALFs to choose from. Regardless of which county the facilities are located in, they follow state guidelines as far as how they're run. The Illinois Department of Health licenses such organization under the Division of Assisted Living. With over 180 assisted living communities to choose from in Kane and McHenry counties, seniors can easily find a facility that provides the right level of assistance and social activities to suit their needs.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Huntley

    • Seniors living in any county in Illinois, including in the town of Huntley, don't have to pay state income tax on retirement income from 401(k)s, IRAs or government programs.
    • Kane and McHenry counties are both rated poorly by the American Lung Association for air quality. Seniors settling in these areas may want to use room air purifiers or wear masks when venturing outdoors are particularly smoggy days. 
    • The climate in Huntley is similar to that of the Chicago area, with frigid winter winds and storms possible. Seniors who don't want to deal with snow may want to choose another retirement location, but the cool springs and falls do support enjoyable outings other times of the year.
    • Huntley has a low crime index and is considered safer than around 89 percent of other U.S. cities. Living in an ALF nearby may help seniors find peace of mind about safety and security. 
    • The Huntley area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living index in Huntley is higher than both the national and state averages, though seniors will find that the cost of groceries and other goods are a bit lower in this area than other areas of the state.
