    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Yorkville

    • Yorkville has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Senior Services Associates, Inc., an organization that provides legal services, transportation and health screenings for seniors, as well as one senior center.
    • The Yorkville area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Aurora.
      • Yorkville has a dynamic arts and culture scene, including public art displays, live performances and an active art guild. Seniors in assisted living facilities may take day trips to see plays performed by the Fox Country Players, the community theatre group.   
      • While the property and sales tax rates are relatively high in Illinois, the state exempts nearly all types of retirement income from taxation, including Social Security income, pension income and withdrawals from retirement accounts. This may leave more money in the budget for assisted living in Yorkville. 
      • Local public bus service in Yorkville is provided by Kendall Area Transit. KAT provides curb-to-curb and door-to-door pick-up services for general trips and medical appointments. Seniors 60 years of age and older receive a discount on all fares. 
      • Yorkville is a relatively expensive place to live, which may be a consideration for seniors with tight assisted living budgets. Overall, the cost of living in this city is about 16% higher than the average Illinois city and 18% higher than the United States as a whole.
