Who are you searching for?

Residential care homes in Evanston may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Evanston care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

Learn More About Care Homes in Evanston, IL

 

Evanston is a college town just outside of Chicago on the north shore of Lake Michigan. Home to Northwestern University, the city is known for its architecture and its gorgeous lakefront views.

Residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

Cost of Care Homes in Evanston, IL

The median monthly cost for a room in an Evanston care home is around $4,500. In the state of Illinois, the median monthly cost of a room in a care home is about $4,300. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.
