Galena, Illinois

Independent Living

If you or your loved one would benefit from the convenience of having housekeeping and chores taken care of by professionals while living the way you desire, consider an Independent Living Community. Frequent needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, which provides residents more opportunities to live life as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are an assortment of expenditures and benefits to consider when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your service plan: utilities, internet access, transportation, field trips, Waiting list deposit, meals, parking, and initial assessment fee. The amenities that pertain to independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, golf course, healthcare center, laundry service, beauty salon & barber shop, transportation, security guards, and fitness center & swimming pool.

Cost of Living

Cost of living can be the major factor in determining which community meets the needs of your loved one. Per month, the median rent in Galena is about $719 and the median home value in Galena is about $150,486. The rent burden for Galena is about 15.6% of the average person's monthly income.

Demographics and Values

Demographically, Galena is 0.2% mixed race, 0.4% other or not specified, 11.8% Hispanic, 98.9% white, 0.0% Native American, 0.0% Asian, 0.0% Pacific Islander or Native Hawaiian, and 0.5% black.
