    Mascoutah is a medium-sized residential community in the neatly kept farmland of western Illinois, not far from the left bank of the Mississippi River. Home to 8,000 people, around 12% of Mascoutah's residents are seniors aged 65 and over. The area in and around town hosts six assisted living facilities for seniors looking for safe and comfortable residential living. These facilities, like all residential care communities in the state, are regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health Division of Assisted Living.

Spring and fall bring about 44 inches of rain to Mascoutah each year, which tends to raise pollen and other allergens that can trouble seniors with asthma.
