What to Consider About Assisted Living in Palos Park

Palos Park is a village in Illinois located just outside of Chicago. The forest preserves that border the area on three sides makes it a vibrant green setting that contrasts heavily with the nearby metropolis. The town has long been known as a retreat, gaining attention in previous decades as a favored place for artists seeking solitude or beauty the city couldn't provide. Seniors can enjoy that same relaxing ambience today in two Palos Park assisted living facilities. These ALFs, like others in the state, are licensed by the Illinois Department of Health's Division of Assisted Living and provide both help with daily living as needed and active schedules to support socialization and mobility.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Palos Park

  • Palos Park has a crime rate much lower than the national average, and certainly lower than nearby Chicago, making it an attractive location for Illinois seniors seeking security.
  • The town is fairly expensive, with a cost of living higher than both the national and state averages. Housing accounts for much of that, so seniors will enjoy lower-than-average utility and goods and services costs.
  • Palos Park does get some harsh winter weather, though seniors who don't like heat will enjoy the average annual high of 56 degrees F, which makes outdoor activities more pleasant during the summer.
  • The Palos Park area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Palos Hospital and the nearby University of Chicago Medicine center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Cook County, where Palos Park is located, receives an F from the American Lung Association for air quality. While the forests around the town do help mitigate this issue, seniors with respiratory issues may want to take precautions such as room air filters.
  • Illinois doesn't tax distributions from many retirement income sources, including IRAs and 401(k) plans or government disability or retirement plans, providing some savings seniors can use to cover the higher cost of living.

Paying for Assisted Living in Palos Park
