Senior living in the Windy City can be a great experience if you can find what you need. Chicago is home to a huge array of senior living communities, in-home services, and community resources—so many that it can be hard to track down what you need without an experienced guide. That’s why’s editors and writers have created a portal just for Chicago-related senior information. If you’re planning a move to Chicago, live there now, or need to find services for a family member who’s a Chicagoland resident, our Chicago Senior Care and Services page makes it easier to live well.

You’ll find comprehensive information on senior living in the city and its many suburbs, from independent living communities and senior-friendly workplaces to affordable housing options and local Social Security office details. Here’s a quick rundown of the resources we have for you on our Chicago page.

All about Chicago senior living

In addition to active retirement communities and affordable housing information, you’ll find guides to Chicago assisted living, dementia care, and nursing homes in the Senior Living section. We also look at Chicago’s Catholic healthcare resources, Protestant assisted living, LGBT senior resources, and this year’s Best of Chicago senior services, as chosen by family and resident reviewers.

Details on Chicago-area senior services

In the Chicago Senior Services section, you can quickly find information on rehab centers, neighborhood senior centers for recreation and social time, concierge services to help with errands and chores, and local support groups for senior veterans. This is also where you’ll find tips on getting around Chicago without a car, information on local hospitals, volunteer opportunities for retirees, and fun things to do in the city.

Chicago in-home care and caregiver resources

Chicago seniors who want to live at home will find information in the Caregiving section on choosing an in-home care service, the cost of in-home care in and around Chicago, tips and resources for safely aging in place, support groups for Chicago-area caregivers, and respite care and adult daycare programs.

Financial aid for Chicago seniors

In the Financial Assistance section, we’ve got details on local Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and veterans benefit offices, along with a list of popular Chicago senior discounts,> and benefits and support for family caregivers.

Chicago retirement planning tips and resources

Our Retirement Planning topics include the local cost of living and cost of retirement, Chicago-area financial planners, elder law attorneys, Realtors, movers, and consultants to help you downsize. You’ll also find a neighborhood guide, an overview of Chicago, and ideas for living like a local.

Family and patient resources for end-of-life care in Chicago

Hospice care and end-of-life issues are hard enough without having to search all over the place for the resources you need. Our End-of-Life Care section features an overview of hospice services as well as a guide to choosing funeral-home services and working with an estate sale agent.

If you’d like to get even more value from our Chicago Senior Care and Services page, you can create a account. That will let you log in, see rates for Chicagoland senior communities, and leave reviews of the services you and your family have worked with. The more information we receive from families about Chicago-area senior services, the easier the senior living journey can be for everyone.
