What to Consider About Assisted Living in Park Ridge

The Illinois Department of Health is responsible for licensing and monitoring assisted living communities in Park Ridge and the rest of the state. It publishes information on the rules facilities must follow related to nutrition services, care planning and move-in and move-out procedures. It also has an online complaint form for those with concerns regarding violations of residents’ rights.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Park Ridge

  • The overall cost of living in Park Ridge is 24% higher than the national norm, which can impact some retirees’ financial outlook. Housing costs, transportation expenses and miscellaneous costs such as restaurant meals and repair services tend to be considerably higher here than in a typical U.S. city. Opting for assisted living may give seniors greater control over living costs and minimize the risk of unexpected expenses.
  • Park Ridge is a generally safe community, providing peace of mind to seniors considering local long-term care options. The city rates 7.3 for violent crime and 20.2 for property-related crime on a 100-point index, compared to respective national ratings of 22.7 and 35.4.
  • According to the American Lung Association, ozone pollution, also called smog, in the Park Ridge region is high, which may be a concern for seniors with certain health conditions. However, the region has a C for 24-hour particle pollution and a passing score for annual particle pollution.
  • Illinois’s state income tax laws are friendly toward retirees and may help seniors put more money toward living and long-term care expenses. Public and private pension income, withdrawals from retirement savings accounts and Social Security benefits aren’t taxed at the state level.
  • Park Ridge has a cool climate, with temperatures ranging from 17 degrees in the winter to 84 degrees in the summer. The city gets about 190 days of sunshine annually and 125 days with measurable precipitation, which includes 36 inches of rain and 36 inches of snow. Seniors in assisted living facilities who don’t want to drive in icy conditions have access to transportation services and escorts for errands and medical appointments.
  • There are 261 doctors per 100,000 people in Park Ridge compared to the national rate of 210, which may reduce wait times to see health care providers, and medical costs come in about 6% below national norms. Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, a high-performing hospital that ranks among the top in the state, is located in the city proper, and more medical options are available in nearby Skokie and Chicago.
