What to Consider About Assisted Living in Olney

Olney, the county seat of Richland County, is well known for its population of white squirrels. These albino squirrels retain right-of-way on city streets and sidewalks, with a $750 fine for any driver who kills one. Seniors living here can participate in the annual squirrel count conducted by Olney residents to keep tabs on the city's treasured inhabitants.

Olney's population is 8,942, of whom 20.8 percent are age 65 or older. For those who need help with daily tasks, Olney has three assisted living facilities  (ALFs) that are licensed and regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health and provide support to the community. Throughout the state, including Olney, ALFs are subject to various statutes regarding operation, safety and training for staff members.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Olney

  • The overall cost of living in Olney rates a 77 against 100, the U.S. median. Transportation is quite low at 71, and groceries are equal to the national average. Lower expenses may lead to increased spending on healthcare, which costs slightly more than the state average. Housing is remarkably low at 39, so it may be gainful for families to move to Olney to be near loved ones in an ALF.
  • The violent crime rate of 21.1 in Olney (on a scale with 100 being most dangerous) is more than twice as high as the national rating of 31.1, and the property crime rate is about 10 points above the U.S. average of 38.1. Families should ask prospective ALFs about security safeguards in place to protect residents.
  • Olney's weather is pleasant from spring to fall, with average summer highs around 87 degrees; however, winter temperatures, can dip all the way to 20. The town receives 45 inches of rain and 12 inches of snow in an average year, as opposed to national averages of 39 and 12, respectively. Seniors who enjoy spending time outside may find opportunities during the 202 sunny days the area has annually.
  • Illinois has senior-friendly tax policies that may stretch a budget, including exemption from state income taxes of all retirement income collected by seniors aged 60 or older, including Social Security, pensions and withdrawals from 401(k) retirement accounts. Everybody has to pay a sales tax on daily living needs.
  • Seniors craving a dose of local arts should visit Carnegie MuseumHeritage House and Mcsburg Schoolhouse, which offer historical and cultural exhibits.
  • The Olney area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Clay County Hospital and HSHS St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
