Independent Living in Illinois

When families search for senior 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 360 independent living communities, sometimes simply called retirement communities, in Illinois.

The median monthly cost of independent living in Illinois is about $2,300.

My wife is very happy here. The staff is always very friendly and caring to the residents and the family - I know it can be a hard job so I really appreciate them. I have been here for meal times and the food looks to be good. I would absolutely recommend Autumn View Gardens to others.

My dad wasn't there very long. But compared to the previous place he was in, it was excellent. It was private pay, and we paid out of pocket. But for us, that was the best scenario. Dad was happy there. The interactions I had with the staff were wonderful. Cleanliness wasn't perfect but was was pretty good overall.
