In Illinois, assisted living facilities must provide single-occupancy apartments for residents, along with a private bathroom and space to accommodate small kitchen appliances. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Joliet

    • The harsh climate of the Joliet area is one of the more negative points of the city. With an average of 28 inches of snow per year and a January low of 16, Joliet isn't the best location for seniors who prefer warm weather. 

    • Joliet also has a high violent crime rate. Seniors should note, however, that the city's violent crime rate is 7.3 percent lower than that of the nearby Chicago metro area. Property crime in Joliet is higher than the state average and slightly higher than property crime in the Chicago metro area.

Illinois exempts almost all retirement income from taxation, including Social Security retirement income, pension payments and income from retirement savings accounts.

    • The Joliet area is home to world-class medical services, including Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Joliet has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Senior Services of Will County, an organization that offers social and recreational programs for adults 60 years of age and older, including games and exercise classes.
