What to Consider About Memory Care in Collinsville

Collinsville is a small city in Madison County, Illinois with a little under 25,000 residents, nearly 15 percent of whom are 65 and over. It is estimated that nearly 12 percent of Madison County seniors who have Medicare have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or dementia. Seniors and families who have been affected by Alzheimer's are served by the Alzheimer's Association Illinois Chapter, which provides resources, hosts events and advocates for those with Alzheimer's.

In Collinsville, as in all of Illinois, memory care services are offered either in supportive living facilities, which are solely for those with dementia, or in an assisted living facility that is licensed to provide dementia care. Collinsville has two memory care facilities, and there are over two dozen more facilities nearby.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Collinsville

  • Ozone pollution levels in Madison County are high, with the county receiving an F for this type of pollution from the American Lung Association. Collinsville's air quality may impact the health of memory care residents with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease.
  • Overall, living costs in Collinsville are about 10 percent below the national median, and healthcare expenses are only slightly higher than the nationwide average. Since the community is a relatively affordable place to live, more money may be left in the budget for memory care expenses. 
  • Illinois has full deductions for Social Security benefits, pension income and income from retirement savings accounts, meaning that Collinsville seniors hang on to the entirety of all retirement income.
  • Collinsville is rated safer than 21 percent of cities in the country and 15 percent of other Illinois cities. When compared exclusively to cities with similar population sizes, Collinsville's crime rate stands out as higher than most. Memory care facilities are equipped with automatically locking doors, surveillance cameras and alarm systems to keep residents safe.
