    What to Consider About Assisted Living in O Fallon

    As one of the fastest growing communities in the St. Louis metro area, O'Fallon, Illinois, is host to a diverse group of residents ranging from personnel stationed at the nearby Scott Air Force Base to families who have lived in the area for generations. Only 10.4 percent of the nearly 30,000 residents are age 65 or older, and there are two assisted living facilities in O'Fallon to serve them. Fifteen more are located in nearby communities.

    In O'Fallon, as in the rest of Illinois, these facilities must be licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health. They must also meet certain guidelines, such as maintaining 24-hour security measures and an emergency alert system for residents' safety.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in O Fallon

    • The overall cost of living in O'Fallon is on par with the Illinois state average of 102 and slightly above the U.S. average of 100. Grocery costs are generally lower than average at 92.9, which may help seniors on a fixed budget. However, health and transportation costs are slightly above average.
    • Illinois tax policies are generally favorable for seniors. Retirement income, including Social Security, pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts, is not taxed by the state. Groceries, medicines and other essential items are still subject to sales tax.
    • As part of the St. Louis metro area, O'Fallon residents' public transportation needs are handled by Metro Transit. This includes MetroBus and MetroLink rail service, both of which have routes in and near O'Fallon. Seniors are eligible for half-price fares if they apply in advance.
    • The crime rate in O'Fallon is somewhat high, which may make it difficult for seniors to feel safe traveling alone. The annual crime rate is about 23 crimes per 1,000 residents. However, it is generally safer than the Illinois average, with residents having a 1 in 542 chance of becoming the victim of a violent crime in O'Fallon, while residents of Illinois in general have a 1 in 228 chance.
    • The O'Fallon area is home to world-class medical facilities, including HSHS St. Elizabeth's Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • St. Clair County, which includes O'Fallon, has been given a C rating for air quality by the American Lung Association. The air quality is generally decent, but seniors with respiratory concerns may need to be careful on high-ozone days.
