    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Paris

    Paris, Illinois, got its name from an anonymous engraving in an oak tree that was in the center of the village when it was founded. An estimated 21 percent of its nearly 8,322 residents are age 65 or older, and there are only two assisted living facilities in Paris and the surrounding communities to care for them.

    In Paris, as in the rest of Illinois, these assisted living facilities (ALFs) must be licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health. They also have to meet legal guidelines, such as maintaining 24-hour security measures and having an emergency alert system for residents' safety.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Paris

    • Paris receives an average of 42 inches of rain and 22 inches of snow yearly, both within four inches of the U.S. average. Summer temperatures jump to 85 from winter lows of 18. Paris was given a Sperling's Comfort Index of 40 out of 100, compared to the national average of 54. Seniors who enjoy four distinct seasons may like the climate in Paris.
    • The overall cost of living in Paris is very low at 75 with the U.S. median being 100 and the Illinois state average 102. Healthcare is close to the national average, so it might be beneficial for families to move to Paris to be near their loved ones if the low expenses would provide extra monthly income to spend on quality care.
    • The violent crime rate in Paris is slightly higher at 35.6 than the U.S. rating of 31.1. The annual property crime rate is 23.3, which is nearly 15 points below the national rate. ALFs provide an extra measure of safety with self-locking doors and security cameras, so families won't worry as much about their loved ones.
    • Illinois has senior-friendly tax policies that could make it worth relocating to receive. All retirement income received from seniors aged 60 or older is exempt from state income taxes, including Social Security, pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts. Sales tax still applies to purchases of everyday living necessities.
    • The Paris area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Paris Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Seniors who enjoy art and history may enjoy field trips to the various art and historic museums in Paris, including the Bi-Centennial Art Center and Museum, the Edgar County Historical Museum and The Dudley House.
