    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Schererville

    The town of Schererville is a Chicagoland suburb. It's been dubbed the “Crossroads of the Nation” for its location at the crossing of two major roadways, US 30 and US 41. Nearly 29,000 people reside in this town, about 18 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. 

    There are over 20 assisted living facilities in the Schererville region, including two in the city proper and 19 more nearby. In Indiana, assisted living facilities are officially called residential care facilities and are licensed by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Schererville

    • Safety in Schererville is rated 74 out of 100, meaning that it's safer than 74 percent of all U.S. cities, and it has a lower crime rate than 66 percent of Indiana cities. Furthermore, when compared to similarly sized cities across the country, Schererville's crime rate was notably lower than other communities, making the city a good option for seniors who enjoy being active in the community. 
    • According to data gathered by the American Lung Association, ozone pollution and short-term particle pollution levels are very high in Schererville. Lake County was given an F for both types of pollution, which may impact the quality of life of retirees with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions.
    • Indiana seniors pay state income tax on income from retirement accounts and pensions, but Social Security benefits are not taxed. The state has fairly low property taxes, which may benefit retirees who own property in Schererville. 
    • Schererville's overall cost of living is a little higher than the national average and about 20 percent higher than the state average. This is primarily due to the high cost of housing, which may affect seniors who rent or plan to purchase a home here. Groceries and healthcare expenses cost a little less here than in the nation as a whole, which may offset higher home costs.
    • The Schererville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Community Hospital Outpatient Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Summers in Schererville are warm and humid with highs around 84 degrees, and winters are chilly with lows in the teens. The city's climate may be well-suited to seniors who enjoy experiencing four distinct seasons.
