What to Consider About Assisted Living in Yorkville

The Illinois Department of Public Health monitors assisted living communities through its Division of Assisted Living. This agency enforces staffing requirements, health and safety rules and care regulations to ensure seniors receive proper care. It also investigates complaints about care quality and performs facility inspections.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Yorkville

 

  • Yorkville has lower crime rates compared to most other cities, including fewer cases of burglary and violent offenses. The FBI reports that local property crimes have decreased in recent years, and violent crimes are generally rare citywide. Seniors concerned about safety can have added peace of mind thanks to security systems in Yorkville's assisted living communities, which typically include cameras, locked gates and 24/7 monitoring.

 

  • The cost of living in Yorkville is about 2.4% above the national average. It's also roughly 8.7% costlier than Illinois' state norm, but that doesn't mean the city is always unaffordable for retirees. On average, local health care is 7% cheaper than the U.S. norm, which can help offset higher prices in other expense categories. Additionally, high house prices account for much of the city's cost of living, but assisted living facilities can shield seniors from this expense thanks to fixed monthly rates that include room and board.

 

  • Seniors in Yorkville don't pay taxes on most forms of retirement income, including Social Security benefits and private sources such as IRAs, which can further offset higher living expenses in the city.

 

  • Watershed quality can impact the safety of tap water, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. In Yorkville, much of the local watershed is impaired, which could mean local drinking water has potentially harmful pollutants. Fortunately, assisted living communities often use water filters to safeguard residents' health.

 

  • Yorkville has very cold winters and warm, humid summers. Low temperatures drop to around 16 degrees Fahrenheit in January, while highs climb to around 84 degrees Fahrenheit in July. Meanwhile, the sky stays partially cloudy year-round, bringing the city about 3.5 inches of rainfall per month throughout the summer. The winter also has precipitation in the form of snow, with up to 10 inches of snowfall per month from November through April. For seniors' comfort, assisted living communities often have many indoor activities and amenities to enjoy during unpleasant weather.
