St. Joseph Village of Chicago
4.6

They caught any illness quickly and acted to treat it. They can improve on housekeeping a bit. I picked this community because, I felt they would be better able to cope long term with my loved one and they had a high rating with the state.

Lexington Health Care Center of Bloomingdale,

Excellent caring staff. The food was always hot and fresh. Excellent chef as all of the food is made right there on premises. The nurses and aides were very caring and attentive to our needs. Great therapy team. The facility is immaculate I would highly recommend this facility

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.

Costs of nursing homes and other senior care facilities in the Chicago area

The cost of senior care varies widely across different areas of the city and based on the level of care provided. Skilled nursing care services are the most expensive, followed by memory care. Average monthly costs in Chicago for senior care communities look like the following:

  • Nursing homes, also known as skilled nursing facilities, in Chicago have average baseline starting costs of about $8,060.[01]
  • For people who don’t require a nursing-home level of medical care, other care options are typically more affordable. For example, memory care in Chicago averages $6,966 at A Place for Mom partner communities, including rent, care and any extras. And assisted living in Chicago averages $5,451 at A Place for Mom partner communities, including rent, care, and any extras.[02]

North of downtown Chicago, costs tend to be higher, often approaching $10,000 per month or more. Further south, costs of senior care communities in Chicago trend downwards. When looking for affordable nursing homes in Chicago for their loved ones, Illinois residents may find that Wisconsin and northern Indiana are worth exploring. The costs of living and senior care services are significantly lower in these states, and senior care communities in these areas still offer manageable proximity to Chicago.

How to pay for nursing home care in Chicago

There are a number of private and public assistance options an individual can use to pay for Chicago nursing homes and other senior care options. Start by looking at your loved one’s financial situation. That will be the best way to determine which methods to choose when identifying ways to pay for care.

Even if your loved one has private pay options, make sure to check their eligibility for public aid, as well. There may be disability-specific assistance available to help your loved one’s private pay options go even further.

Private pay methods for Chicago nursing homes

To pay for Chicago nursing homes or other senior care options for your loved one, first consider the income your loved one receives, including Social Security benefits, savings, pensions, or investments.

For those who have planned in advance, long-term care insurance may cover the cost of nursing home or skilled nursing care services, although coverage can vary widely among policies. Note that most long-term care insurance policies do not cover room and board in care communities. Check with your loved one’s policy provider, as this may cover a significant portion of their senior care costs. Take a look at some other commonly practiced private pay options:

Understand Chicago laws and regulations for nursing home facilities

Health and safety are primary concerns when considering living options for seniors. Chicago nursing homes, assisted living, and memory care facilities must be licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) – Division of Assisted Living. The following laws and regulations are specific to senior care communities licensed as skilled nursing units. For other senior living community regulations, refer to the Chicago assisted living or Chicago memory care pages for further insight.

In addition to the Illinois Department of Public Health, Illinois skilled nursing communities are also regulated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (also referred to as CMS). Illinois skilled nursing communities are inspected at a minimum of once every six to 15 months.

Illinois nursing facility regulations account for the following provisions:

  • Staffing requirements, including staff-to-resident ratios, staff training, and qualifications for providing nursing and personal care [05]
  • Support of residents’ quality of life, like encouraging residents to manage as much of their own personal care tasks as they are able
  • Providing medical and nursing care, including medication administration and any procedures ordered by the residents’ primary care physician
  • Maintaining and keeping up with residents’ individual care plans

Before being admitted to a nursing care facility, prospective residents will be given a medical assessment to determine whether skilled nursing is the right level of care for them. If the individual doesn’t need round-the-clock nursing care, an assisted living or other care type facility may be a better option.[06]

Families can research prospective nursing homes by using Medicare’s local provider search tool. You can also learn about the rights and protections of nursing home residents through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services document on your rights and protections as a nursing home resident.

COVID-19 regulations for Chicago nursing homes

While most COVID-19 restrictions have been eased in Chicago, long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes and assisted living communities, still have guidelines in place for residents’ safety.

Vaccinations. COVID-19 vaccines are available to all residents. Staff are required to be either up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations or to be tested twice per week.

Masking. All visitors and staff must wear masks. When COVID-19 cases are higher, more protective equipment is required for staff.

Types of Chicago senior care facilities

Chicago is home to myriad diversity and culture. No matter your loved one’s interests or level of support needs, there is a senior care community to suit them. Chicago is also a city for food lovers, and many of Chicago’s senior living communities offer restaurant-style dining with professional culinary experiences — so meals are an occasion rather than a chore. The city has a lot of pet-friendly options, as well, for the seniors who can’t part with their furry friends.

Especially closer to the city center, Chicago offers a lot of skilled nursing communities that provide 24-hour medical care to their residents. Skilled nursing is a good senior living option for individuals who require more hands-on care than assisted living can provide or those who are immobile without more than one person to help them.

Tiered care types

Many of Chicago’s senior living communities hold an “aging-in-place” philosophy by offering multiple types of care on one campus. These are sometimes referred to as Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs), but not always. CCRCs often require an entry fee, so that service costs remain consistent even if a resident’s care needs change. While Chicago does have some CCRCs, it also has non-CCRC senior living communities that still provide multiple care levels on one campus.

Non-CCRC communities may not have high up-front fees, as they don’t charge for advanced services until the need arises. Both CCRC and non-CCRC options offer some combination of independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care. This is a popular choice among seniors who don’t want to relocate if their care needs ever change since they can easily transition to a support level that fits their evolving needs.

Supportive living

Unique to Illinois senior living is a community type called supportive living. Supportive living communities provide care services to their residents and are an excellent option for Chicago seniors with limited funds for long-term care. Unlike private-sector assisted living communities in Illinois, supportive living communities accept Medicaid. Note that even in supportive living, Medicaid doesn’t cover the cost of room and board, only care services.[07]

Services that can be covered in a Medicaid-approved supportive living community include the following:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Medication assistance
  • Social activities and recreation
  • 24-hour care staff

Senior care in the surrounding Chicago suburbs

Chicago has numerous senior living communities outside of the downtown area. Senior living communities in the suburbs of Chicago often sit on more spacious campuses and are ideal for seniors who are looking for a gentler pace of life than the city center has to offer. Northern suburban areas of Chicago tend to have a higher cost of living, whereas south of the city center, there are more budget-friendly options.

Chicago’s location near the state borders of Wisconsin and Indiana gives residents even more senior living options for their loved ones. Wisconsin and Indiana both have lower costs of living, so senior living communities in these areas can be more affordable while still making it easy to visit your loved one on a regular basis.

Health care for seniors in Chicago

When it comes to taking care of their health, Chicago seniors have several reputable medical centers to choose from.

Northwestern Memorial Hospital is the highest-ranking hospital in the state of Illinois, according to U.S. News and World Report. It’s also nationally ranked in 10 adult specialties. The hospital partners with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine to foster world-class patient care and medical innovation.

Rush University Medical Center is ranked No. 2 out of Chicago hospitals, according to U.S. News and World Report. With roots going back over 180 years, Rush is known for outstanding patient care, education, and medical research.

University of Chicago Medical Center is the third-highest ranked hospital in Chicago and in the state of Illinois, according to U.S. News and World Report. University of Chicago Medical Center is a nonprofit academic hospital established in 1927. It’s also known for exceptional geriatric care services.

NorthShore University Health System is the fourth-highest ranking Chicago hospital, according to U.S. News and World Report. NorthShore includes six hospitals and over 140 medical centers all over the Illinois area.

Transportation for seniors in Chicago

Most senior care facilities in Chicago offer transportation services to their residents, for medical appointments, errands, or off-site activities. For visiting family members, it may be helpful to know that many Chicago residents choose public transportation over driving due to the city’s heavy traffic and limited parking. Luckily, Chicago has a wealth of reliable, public transportation options:

  • Many Chicago residents feel that the most convenient and cost-effective way to get around is the Chicago Transit Authority “L” train.
  • Specifically for seniors, veterans, and individuals who require a wheelchair or mobility assistance, Chicago provides AC Med Tran transportation services.
  • Chicago has over 100 bus routes, as well as the Metra Rail train for commuting to the Chicago suburbs.
  • For the active individual, Chicago’s Divvy bike-share system can be a fun way to get around.

Senior activities in Chicago

Chicago is the most populous city in the Midwestern United States. It’s known for its cultural diversity, entertainment, culinary experiences, landmarks, shoreline views of sparkling Lake Michigan, and, of course, its delicious Chicago-style deep-dish pizza.

There’s something for everyone in Chicago. Take in an evening with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, or spend an afternoon with marine wildlife at Shedd Aquarium. Enjoy a scenic stroll along Chicago’s Lakefront Trail or through one of its many sprawling parks. Meander through the Museum of Contemporary Art, or take the grandkids to the Chicago Children’s Museum. Many of Chicago’s attractions also offer senior discounts and free-admission days, so it’s easy to enjoy the best of the city without breaking the bank.

Wine tasting is also a popular senior living community outing, combining fresh air, beautiful views, and delicious, locally crafted wine. Locals and visitors alike enjoy all of Chicago’s wonderful wine rooms, like Wild Blossom Meadery and Winery, The Fromagerie and Tasting Room, and City Winery Riverwalk Wine Garden.
