What to Consider About Assisted Living in Washington

The City of Washington is located just east of Peoria, Illinois. When it was founded in 1825 it was home to just one family. Today over 15,000 people live in the city and around 13 percent of the populations is 65 or older. Seniors wishing to retire to the area can find accommodation in the city's one assisted living facility or look to the 16 facilities located in nearby communities, including East Peoria and Metamora. These facilities are licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health, Division of Assisted Living.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Washington

  • Illinois has some of the highest sales tax in the country, which may impact seniors' retirement budgets. However, nearly all retirement income, including Social Security, pensions and retirement funds, are exempt from income tax.
  • The Washington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Advocate Eureka Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Public transport in Washington is provided by CityLink, which services the Greater Peoria area. Riders aged 65 and older are entitled to a discounted fare and may also be eligible for the Free Ride Program.
  • Seniors interested in arts and culture can take in a show at the Five Points Washington Performing Arts Center, the preferred venue of the Heartland Festival Orchestra. Residents who prefer a hands-on approach can visit Art at the Bodega, a studio that allows people to indulge their creative side.
  • Washington's crime rate is 11 per 1,000 residents, which is safer than 61 percent of American towns and cities. The violent crime rate is less than one per 1,000 residents, compared to the Illinois average of 4.36. Violent crime occurs at a rate of almost half the state average, which may appeal to safety-conscious retirees.
  • The overall cost of living in Washington is rated 89 on Sperling's index, 11 points lower than the national average. Grocery and transport costs are lower than the U.S. average, but healthcare is six points higher on the index, which may impact the budget of seniors with health conditions.
