What to Consider About Memory Care in Des Plaines

Des Plaines is home to over 58,000 people and more than 18 percent are aged 65 or older. As a suburb of Chicago, it's part of the largest city in Illinois, a state where more than 220,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease. There are more than 130 memory care facilities in Des Plaines and nearby communities to help cater to people with dementia.

Facilities in Illinois that have dementia care programs provide specialized training to staff and have higher staff numbers. They are licensed and monitored by the Illinois Division of Assisted Living.

  • Des Plaines is safer than 63 percent of communities in the U.S. and has been named one of the country's Top 100 Safest Cities by Neighborhood Scout. Violent crime occurs at a rate of just 1.05 per 1,000 people, compared to the state average of 4.39. Property crime is also very low at a rate of just 9.79, less than half the state average of 20.11. This may be reassuring to seniors and families concerned about safety.
  • The Des Plaines area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Northwestern Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The cost of living in Des Plaines is rated at 119 on the Sperling index, compared to the national average of 100. However, this is mainly due to the high cost of housing. Day-to-day expenses, including groceries and health care, are less expensive than the U.S. average, which may leave the families of seniors in memory care with more money for memory care costs.
  • Seniors in Illinois will not pay income tax on money from Social Security, pensions or retirement funds, leaving more money available for memory care.
