What to Consider About Memory Care in Bensenville

Bensenville is a small village of 18,000 people in the suburbs of Chicago, immediately west of Chicago O'Hare International Airport. Just over 12 percent of this community's residents are seniors age 65 and over, and for those with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia, the Bensenville-Elmhurst area has 14 memory care facilities to care for them.

Memory care facilities in the state are regulated, along with skilled nursing and other forms of residential adult care, by the Illinois Department of Public Health Division of Long-Term Care, which inspects facilities around the state for quality of care and issues licenses to operate.
