What to Consider About Assisted Living in North Aurora

The charming village of North Aurora, Illinois, lies 35 miles west of Chicago. The thriving downtown district and lovely open spaces attract plenty of young families, so only 9.6 percent of the approximately 18,000 residents are senior citizens. Due to its convenient location in the suburbs, however, there are more than 30 assisted living facilities to choose from in the general area.

Assisted living facilities in North Aurora must renew their license each year with the Illinois Department of Public Health, which requires them to follow state laws and regulations. Since each senior citizen has unique needs, assisted living facilities are required to create a service plan for each individual resident.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in North Aurora

  • North Aurora is generally an affordable place to live, which may benefit seniors on a fixed budget. Grocery costs are significantly lower than both state and national averages. Utility, transportation and health costs all rank slightly lower than the national average.
  • Seniors who move to North Aurora may feel safe in their new community thanks to the village's low crime rate. The violent crime rate is only 13.1, which is significantly lower than the metro area's average of 37.9. Property crimes are somewhat more common, but still significantly lower than metro, state and national averages.
  • North Aurora's excellent public transportation makes it a good choice for seniors who no longer drive. Bus service is provided by Pace, which has routes in the village and surrounding communities. A Metra rail line connects it with downtown Chicago. Seniors are eligible for discounted tickets on both with an RTA reduced fare permit.
  • The North Aurora area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Presence Mercy Medical Center in nearby Aurora, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • North Aurora is located in Kane County, which the American Lung Association has given a D rating for poor air quality. Seniors may need to stay indoors on days with high ozone levels.
  • Summers in North Aurora are mild and humid, with highs in the low 80s. However, winters can be cold and icy, with an average of about 28 inches of snow a year which may make it difficult for seniors with mobility issues to get around.
