    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Oak Park

    In Oak Park, Illinois 12 percent of the 51,989 people living there are 65 and older with access to three assisted living facilities in Oak Park, along with an additional 54 in surrounding communities.  In Illinois, assisted living facilities are both licensed and regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Assisted living facilities are required to have caregivers available 24 hours a day to help seniors with daily tasks, personal care, and social activities. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Oak Park

    • Oak Park is a very easy city to navigate without a car due to its numerous public transportation options. Pace buses provide routes throughout the town and connect to other suburbs. Oak Park is also connected directly to Chicago via Chicago Transit Authority bus routes and two elevated rail lines. In addition, the Metra commuter rail line runs through Oak Park. Seniors qualify for reduced fares on all of these options.

    • Oak Park's cost of living is 37.3% higher than the national average. Much of this is due to housing costs, but groceries, utilities and transportation are all a bit more expensive than average.

    • Since it is part of the Chicago metro area, Oak Park is close to world-class museums, arts and entertainment. Many assisted living communities arrange outings to see performances by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra or to visit the Art Institute of Chicago. The town itself also offers interesting things to do, such as the Oak Park Conservatory and the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio.

    • The average January low in Oak Park is a chilly 18 degrees, and the area sees about 36 inches of snow every year. Summers are generally fairly mild with an average July high of 84 degrees, but high humidity can make it feel hotter than that at times.

    • The crime rate in Oak Park is fairly high. Only 17% of cities in the US have more crime per capita. The majority is property crime, particularly burglaries and vehicle theft.

    • The Oak Park area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Rush Oak Park Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
