    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Monticello

    The city of Monticello offers a variety of free programs for seniors through the Parks and Recreation Department, including exercise programs, community choir and bingo. This small city has less than 6,000 residents, roughly one in five of whom are age 65 and over. 

    Monticello has two assisted living facilities for seniors to choose from. In this city, as in the rest of Illinois, assisted living facilities are officially called personal care homes or assisted living residences, depending on the populations they serve. Assisted living residences are licensed through the Department on Aging, and personal care homes are licensed through the Department of Public Health.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Monticello

    • Monticello's summers are warm and humid, with July highs in the mid-80s and muggy conditions 60% of the time, which may be a consideration for seniors who are sensitive to heat. Winters tend to be cold and windy with lows around 20 degrees. 
    • The cost of living in Monticello is nearly 10% below state and national averages, primarily due to the city's low housing, utilities, grocery and transportation costs. This may result in lower assisted living costs, which may appeal to seniors on a budget. 
    • Monticello has a very low crime rate, which may appeal to safety-minded seniors and provide peace of mind for their families. On a 100-point scale on which a lower score represents less crime, the city's violent crime rate is 9.3, versus the national average of 22.7, and the property crime rate is 14.9, compared to the national median of 35.4. 
    • Illinois has some of the highest property and sales taxes in the nation, which may be a consideration for some seniors. However, seniors do not pay state income tax on any retirement income, which may offset other taxes and leave more money for assisted living services in Monticello. 
    • The Monticello area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Kirby Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
      • Public transportation in Monticello is provided by Piattran, which operates several routes inside and outside of the county. Seniors age 60 and up can ride for a discounted fare.
