Illinois Assisted Living Communities

WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

Illinois is the most populous state in the Midwest and the fifth most populous in the nation, with a large cosmopolitan population. It's balance of vast suburbs and the great metropolis of Chicago in the northeast, rural areas, small industrial cities, and renowned agricultural productivity in central and western Illinois give it a highly diverse economic base. It is this mixture of factory and farm, of urban and rural, that makes Illinois a microcosm of the United States.

Retirees in Illinois can choose among the significant art and cultural offerings in the large city of Chicago, or the more rural farmlands in the southern half of the state. Lake Michigan gives you the feel of being on the coast in the summer, while also getting to enjoy snowfall in the winter months.
