The 10 Best Memory Care Facilities in Bolingbrook, IL for 2024

Bolingbrook is a welcoming village in the Chicago metropolitan area that provides access to outstanding medical facilities, supportive programs and retiree-friendly income tax laws, offering a favorable environment for seniors and families seeking dementia care solutions. While Alzheimer’s is a growing threat to public health in Illinois, communities such as Bolingbrook have a more positive outlook. In this village, where 11% of the 74,000 residents are seniors, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the number of Alzheimer’s deaths in the region increased by 23% between 2016 and 2020. This increase was modest compared to the 34% increase among deaths from all causes.

While there isn't a cure for Alzheimer's, seniors with this diagnosis can often slow the progression of this disease and optimize their quality of life through effective treatment.

This option includes around-the-clock supervision, compassionate care and dementia-informed therapies.

What to Consider About Memory Care in Bolingbrook

The Illinois Department of Public Health licenses memory care facilities in Bolingbrook and the rest of the state as assisted living facilities, and it enforces standard rules related to housing, nutrition and medication services and care planning. Along with these rules, memory care facilities must comply with additional requirements related to intake and discharge procedures, staff training and building security.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Bolingbrook

  • The overall cost of living in Bolingbrook is 25% higher than the national norm, which may be a consideration for those researching budget-friendly memory care facilities in northwestern Michigan. While utilities in this city cost about 3% less than in the nation as a whole, groceries are 5% more expensive and housing costs 51% more. Fortunately, many local memory care facilities have all-inclusive pricing, which may provide monthly savings compared to living alone.
  • Bolingbrook is home to UChicago Medicine AdventHealth Bolingbrook, a 138-bed acute care hospital that offers a broad range of inpatient and outpatient services. The hospital features a weekly walk-in clinic and has a team of neurologists who treat and manage memory-related conditions. In addition to this, many memory care facilities in Bolingbrook support telemedicine services and have on-site office space for visiting physicians, minimizing disruptions in residents’ daily routines.
  • Illinois’s income tax laws are very friendly toward retirees, allowing seniors to deduct Social Security income, pension income and income from retirement savings accounts from their annual taxes. While sales and property taxes are relatively high compared to other states, seniors with dementia may avoid these expenses by opting for residential memory care.
  • In the Chicago metropolitan area, where Bolingbrook is located, the American Lung Association reports relatively high pollution levels. Out of 227 surveyed metropolitan regions nationwide, this region ranks as the 17th worst for high ozone days, and out of 200 metros, it’s the 23rd worst for annual particle pollution levels. Fortunately, many memory care facilities are equipped with air filtration systems to support residents’ health and comfort.
  • Bolingbrook has long, warm summers and very cold winters, making the city a favorable option for retirees seeking a seasonal climate. Average winter lows are around 17 degrees Fahrenheit and rarely dip below -2 degrees Fahrenheit, and the snowy period lasts between mid-November and the end of March. Summers are warm, with average daytime highs in July around 84 degrees Fahrenheit, and few days see temperatures above 92 degrees Fahrenheit. To support residents’ comfort, many memory care facilities have individual climate controls in residents’ rooms.
