    What to Consider About Assisted Living in St Charles

    St. Charles, nicknamed “Pride of the Fox,” lies 40 miles west of Chicago on the Fox River. Once known as the pickle capital of the world, this mid-sized city is home to just under 33,000 people. Seniors make up 15.5 percent of this population and can choose from five assisted living facilities (ALFs) in town and over 40 in the surrounding areas.  All ALFs are regulated by the Illinois Department of Health Division of Assisted Living.   

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in St Charles

    • St. Charles has a wealth of arts and culture to offer seniors from galleries and museums like the St. Charles History Museum and Durante House Museum to theaters such as the historic Arcada theater. Seniors 50 and above can visit the Park District’s adult activity center for games, classes and social activities.  
       
    • Cost of living in St. Charles is 17.3 percent higher than other U.S. cities. Housing is the biggest factor for this with transportation, grocery and health costs all scoring right around national medians.  
    • The climate in St. Charles varies from highs of 83 degrees Fahrenheit in July to lows of 14 degrees in January. The city gets a fair amount of snowfall, 30 inches annually, which may affect seniors who enjoy the outdoors. Rainfall is slightly below average at 34 inches per year. 
       
    • Seniors can feel safe in St. Charles as the crime rate is fairly low with violent crime at 22 out of 100 (high) crime. Property crime scores 26.9 out of 100.  
       
    • Seniors needing access to public transportation can ride the SCAT buses around town for a reduced fare. The Ride in Kane Program offers door to door service 24 hours a day for seniors over 65. 
       
    • Illinois is considered a retirement tax friendly state since it exempts social security benefits and almost all other retirement income including pensions and retirement savings accounts. Seniors on a budget should note that Illinois does have high sales tax.
