Assisted Living in Illinois

When families search for assisted living, Illinois is often at the top of the list — and for good reason.

People often say Illinois is a small version of the United States as a whole, meaning the state has a little bit of everything the country has to offer. With mostly moderate weather, plus plenty of farmland and rural towns to go along with its mid-size industrial cities and Chicago — the third-largest city in the U.S. — Illinois is a uniquely desirable retirement destination. It’s the quintessential Midwestern state, bordering the Mississippi River in the west, the Ohio River in the east, and Lake Michigan in the north. The “Land of Lincoln” also has a rich political history: Other than Honest Abe, several other U.S. presidents have called Illinois home, including Ulysses S. Grant, Ronald Reagan, and Barack Obama.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 540 senior living communities in Illinois that provide assisted living.

The median monthly cost of assisted living in Illinois is about $4,900.

Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Oak Forest, IL
Sunrise of Flossmoor
3.9

The good thing about Sunrise is that it is not as large as some other communities we looked at, it is easier for the residents to navigate around the place. They have onsite nursing staff 24 hours a day. It is s very secure community cannot get in and out without being let in and they have done a great job sanitizing everything during the covid pandemic. The food is not as good as it could be, but we understand everyone is struggling to get food and keep consistent staffing.

Bickford of Tinley Park
5.0

Our experience with Bickford of Tinley Park has been very good and the cleanliness of the community is very impressive. The staff members have exceeded every one of our expectations, we cannot say enough good things about them. The meals are really good and they offer a good amount of activities. We feel very confident our loved one is in a good place.

Arden Courts of Palos Heights
3.0

I chose Arden Courts in part because we knew people who had loved ones there that were happy. I liked that they quoted you a price and that was that, whether you took one medication or ten. There was a lot of friendliness. We felt comfortable leaving our loved one there. We got phone calls from them to update us and let us know how he was transitioning, which was great because we weren't allowed to come inside to visit due to Covid. Our loved one was only there about a week before he passed away unexpectedly. They were wonderful to us, and had everything packed up for us and ready to go. They even refunded the move-in fee since he was there such a short amount of time. And emotionally I think they do really care about the people who are there. Normally they have a policy to get everything moved out in 48 hours, and and I think we still made that timeframe, but they didn't pressure us at all, which was nice that we didn't have to worry about that during an already stressful time.
