    What to Consider About Memory Care in Adams County

    There are currently 220,000 seniors in Illinois who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Adams County has a population of over 66,000 residents, which includes a 19.9 percent demographic of adults who are aged 65 and older.

    To address the needs of its aging population, the Illinois Department of Public Health has an Alzheimer's Disease State Plan to ensure care is accessible for those who are living with some type of dementia. This type of care can be found at facilities with Alzheimer's special care units, three of which are available in the county's largest city, Quincy.

    • The average cost of living in Adams County is 83.4, based on the U.S. national average of 100. This is well below the Illinois average of 102, which may make Adams County an appealing option for seniors on a budget looking to allocate more of their funds toward the cost of memory care services.
    • Winters in Adams County can be quite cold. Temperatures drop as low as 17 degrees, though the area only receives an average 18 inches of snow each year. When visiting an SCU, families should check to see that a facility has the necessary measures in place to prevent senior residents from being exposed to harsh weather conditions.
    • Despite relatively low rates across the state, crime in Adams County is higher. On a scale of 100, with 100 being high crime, violent crime in Adams County scores a 39.5, compared to the Illinois average of 31.2. Property crime is also higher, scoring 37.4 compared to the average of 27.5. Consider asking about the policies an SCU has in place to ensure the safety of its residents.
    • Seniors in Illinois are not taxed on Social Security benefits, pension or income from retirement savings accounts, which may allow for additional funds to be allocated toward the cost of memory care services.
