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.

Addolorata Villa in Wheeling, IL
4.8

We choose Addollorata Villa because it offered our Mom a continuum of care we believed was best. We have seen firsthand the Addolorata staff show extreme compassion to their patients and residents. They have been extremely attentive to our mother's needs and kept our family updated along the way. The spiritual environment is a comfort for her and our family. We highly recommend the community of Addolorata Villa.

Oak Trace a CCRC in Downers Grove, IL

They're short of help, all the way around. That's the main challenge. Sometimes it's hard to find a nurse on the nursing floor. But I really like the assisted living building. They're very good with their activities and keeping their people up to date on things. I had one relative move to the wellness center from assisted living, and I would not do that if you can avoid it. They don't have the activities, and they're kind of isolated in wellness.

I toured 7 or 8 different locations, and without a doubt the feel walking in here was different than anyplace I walked into. The amount of life, the staff, the interaction it was all great. I have been in sales my whole life and you can tell very quickly about what type of culture or concern they might have and Storypioint was by far the best. It has proven to be so in the 7 months she has been here. We have been very pleased with the care and management. I would highly recommend the facility to others and already have. For where my mom is mentally and physically, it has been the best fit.
