    What to Consider About Memory Care in Algonquin

    Algonquin is an outlying village of the Chicagoland area, roughly 15 minutes north of Elgin. Home to just over 31,000 people, 11 percent of them seniors age 65 and over, the Algonquin area has 10 memory care facilities to care for seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. 

    Residential long-term care facilities, a category that includes memory care in the state, are regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health Division of Long-Term Care.

    • The Algonquin area tends to have warm, relatively mild summers and very cold winters. Summer highs here average 84 degrees at the peak of summer, while winters get down to an average temperature of 13 degrees overnight. Just under 38 inches of rain falls in Algonquin each year, and winter brings about 29 inches of snow, mostly in December and January, which can be an issue for seniors who are sensitive to the cold.
    • Algonquin's cost of living is somewhat higher than the average nationally. Across all typical living expenses, residents here pay an average of about 22 percent more than the typical cost in America. Median home cost here is $244,700, though seniors in residential memory care are generally spared the cost of local real estate. Healthcare is also more expensive in Algonquin than it is nationally, though less so. The typical cost of care here is just 7 percent higher than the national average. 
    • Crime is low in Algonquin. Across all categories of crime, the rates are just one-fourth the national average. Violent crime is even less common here, though theft is still an occasional issue for some area residents. Seniors in memory care are less likely to be affected by this, since residential care facilities in Illinois are staffed full-time.
    • The Algonquin area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital and Centegra Hospital-Woodstock, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
