    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Swansea

    Swansea, Illinois is in the oldest county in Illinois, which is part of the American Bottom or Metro-East area of the St. Louis, MO-IL metropolitan area. The city was formed by independent residents who were worried that the neighboring village of Belleview would annex their land. Some 17.1 percent of Swansea's population of 13,518 are aged 65 or older. Fifteen assisted living facilities are in the Swansea area — three in Swansea and 12 nearby.

    In Swansea, as in all of Illinois, assisted living facilities (ALFs) are licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health and must conform to regulations governing the safety of their residents and the facility's method of operation.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Swansea

    • Swansea receives more rain per year than the U.S. average, but less snow. Summer temperatures stay below 90 degrees and winter lows remain above 20. Annual sunny days are nearly equal to the national average of 205, and the Sperling's Comfort Index is 47 compared to a 54 for the country.
    • The overall cost of living in Swansea is two points lower than the national average of 100. Housing is at 87, which is 13 percent lower than the U.S. and 5 percent below the state average. Families may find it affordable to move to this area to be near seniors in an ALF, and the low expenses may provide extra room in the budget for healthcare.
    • The violent crime rate in Swansea is more than five points lower at 26.3 than the U.S. rating of 31.1. The annual property crime rate is 28.4, which is nearly 10 points below the national rate. ALFs offer an extra safety level with cameras and auto-locking doors, so families can feel confident that their loved ones are secure.
    • Illinois has senior-friendly tax policies; all retirement income is exempt from state income taxes, including Social Security, pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts.
    • Being part of the St. Louis metro area, Metro Transit handles the public transportation needs of the residents of Swansea. Senior Reduced Fare Permits lower the fee to ride MetroBus and MetroLink by 50 percent. 
    • The Swansea area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Memorial Hospital Belleville and Touchette Regional Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
