The cost of assisted living facilities in Chicago, IL

Assisted living communities can provide the peace of mind that comes from not worrying about home maintenance, chores, or errands, as well as help with personal care like grooming, eating, and other activities of daily living (ADLs) seniors might have trouble with. Keep in mind as you start your search for assisted living facilities that some cities (particularly those where the cost of living is high) will be more expensive than others.

We strive to provide you with the best cost data available: when we can, we provide Seniorly data on the cost of senior living communities. If we don’t have that data, we default to Genworth, who has been tracking the cost of care for 17 years in the US. Genworth’s median cost of assisted living communities in Chicago is $4,825 per month. There will be at least some variation within Chicago assisted living community costs, as each might provide slightly different types of specialized care, or be located in more or less crowded or desirable neighborhoods. 

Assisted living isn’t the right option for everyone, however, and with terms like “retirement home” and “nursing home” clouding your search, knowing what is most appropriate can be difficult. For example, if your loved one requires nursing care, or has diagnosed Alzheimer's or dementia that has progressed to a certain point, a skilled nursing facility, in-home care, or memory care community may be more appropriate. Conversely, those who don’t require day-to-day assistance with ADLs may find independent living more comfortable. Our local advisors can provide expert advice on what you can afford and whether or not your city of interest is right for your needs and budget.
