What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mahomet

Mahomet is a small village located in Central Illinois known for its beauty and small-town feel. It's home to two protected forest areas, as well as Lake of the Woods Golf Course. Of Mahomet's 8,500 residents, 9.7 percent are over the age of 65. Mahomet has two assisted living establishments, and another seven are located in the nearby areas of Champaign and Savoy. Assisted living in Illinois is regulated and licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mahomet

  • Mahomet has extremely cold temperatures in the winter. The average low temperature in January is only 17 degrees, and an average of 20 inches of snow fall each year. By comparison, the U.S. average low temperature in January is 22.6.

  • Although Mahomet has a fairly average cost of living when it comes to grocery, housing and transportation, the cost of health care is 8 percent higher than the national average cost. This will make living in the area unaffordable for many seniors.

  • Transportation options in Mahomet are limited, meaning seniors may need to rely on family, friends or shuttle services offered by their assisted living establishment, which may be limited.

  • The Mahomet area has few facilities to choose from in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Champaign.

  • Seniors living in Mahomet are extremely safe. The area is safer than 92 percent of U.S. cities, and has a violent crime rate near zero. Only 3.82 property crimes per 1,000 citizens occur in Mahomet. By comparison, the state average is 20.49 per 1,000 residents.

  • Illinois exempts retirement income such as pensions and Social Security checks from taxes. Seniors can use these savings to help pay for the cost of assisted living.
