About Illinois
Assisted Living

The official terms for Assisted Living in Illinois are Assisted Living Facilities (ALF's) and “Shared Housing Establishments” (SHEs). These are alternatives to nursing homes for seniors who can't manage living alone but don't need nursing care. Usually residents have their own small apartments, but are supported by extra services, including meals, housekeeping, laundry and assistance with activities of daily living. Residents usually pay with their own resources. Medicaid and Medicare do not -in most cases- pay for Assisted Living.

We have listing pages for each Illinois county that has Assisted Living facilities, along with special directories for larger IL cities.

A person considering Assisted Living must meet certain health requirements to be accepted by a facility. You should discuss your needs with the professional staff of an Assisted Living facility or with a qualified state elder-care professional.
