    What to Consider About Memory Care in Chicago

    As the headquarters of the internationally recognized Alzheimer’s Association, and with an array of dedicated programs and assistance centers on the disease, Chicago leads in the advancement of dementia research and offers world-class memory care options for seniors. It is estimated that there are more than 220,000 Illinois residents living with dementia, and the Windy City has several memory care facilities for families to choose from for their aging loved ones. In Chicago, as in the rest of the Prairie State, facilities offering memory care services must be licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health to have Alzheimer’s special care units or centers. These facilities include life care facilities, nursing homes and assisted living and shared housing establishments.

    • The Chicago-Naperville area's high ozone pollution makes it one of the worst metropolitan areas in the country in terms of poor air quality, as measured by the American Lung Association. This may be a concern for seniors with respiratory health conditions.
    • Chicago’s overall cost of living is 23 percent higher than the national average, mainly due to expensive housing and transportation costs. Seniors enjoy significant tax savings since the state of Illinois exempts taxation on social security income, retirement account withdrawals and pensions.
    • Chicago is considered to be one of the 100 most dangerous cities in the United States due to its violent and property crime rates being significantly higher than the Illinois state and national averages. For peace of mind, families of seniors with dementia need to carefully choose memory care facilities with strong, reliable security systems.
