What to Consider About Memory Care in Belleville

Because the state officially classifies memory care communities as assisted living facilities, all memory care facilities in Belleville obtain licensure through the Illinois Department of Public Health’s Division of Assisted Living. This division conducts regular site inspections to observe conditions and maintain communication with facility administrators, and it enforces minimum standards for care and residents’ rights.

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Belleville

  • Memorial Hospital Belleville serves residents in the Belleville region through emergency care and primary and specialty services. It houses the Memorial Orthopedic and Neurosciences Center, which has board-certified neurologists who help manage degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's, promoting specialized care for local memory care residents.
  • Belleville scores 56 out of 100 points on the AARP Livability Index versus the typical U.S. city score of 48 points, marking it as one of the more senior-friendly cities in the nation. Memory care residents benefit from good air and water quality, as well as FEMA-approved local multi-hazard mitigation plans, which promote residents' ongoing safety and quality of life. The city also has a reliable public transportation system with a high number of ADA-accessible vehicles, enabling spouses and families to visit loved ones in memory care without relying on private vehicles.
  • Overall, Belleville residents spend 15% less on housing and 10% on utilities than those living in a typical U.S. city, contributing to a cost of living that runs 5% below the national average. To further promote affordability, the state funds home and community-based services waiver programs that pay for some memory care expenses.
  • Illinois exempts virtually all retirement income from taxation, including Social Security benefits, money seniors take from their retirement accounts and any income acquired through private or public pensions. Although the state imposes sales taxes on food and prescription medication, it taxes them at a much lower rate than the standard base sales tax rate of 6.25%, supporting financial stability and access to care for those with dementia.
  • Belleville ranks as a generally safe community with a crime rate that's typical of cities its size. Annually, it reports about 21 crimes per 1,000 residents, about three-quarters of which are nonviolent. Several neighborhoods have even less crime, including Rentchler, Imbs/Westview and Signal Hill, providing options for those seeking memory care in safe communities.
