    What to Consider About Memory Care in Fox Lake

    According to the Alzheimer's Association of America, there are currently 220,000 seniors across the state of Illinois diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Fox Lake is a village of over 10,000, 18.5 percent of whom are aged 65 and older and may be living with some type of dementia. 

    Illinois has enacted an Alzheimer's Disease State Plan that emphasizes the importance of providing care options for individuals in this demographic. There is one facility in Fox Lake that offers specialized care for seniors with dementia, and an additional 10 options in neighboring communities.

    • Compared to the national average of 100, the cost of living in Fox Lake scores a 96.5. The majority of savings come from low housing costs, though grocery costs also fall below the national average. These savings could allow families to allocate more funds toward memory care services, making Fox Lake a budget-friendly option for Illinois seniors.
    • Like many other Illinois municipalities, Fox Lake experiences harsh winters. About 40 inches of snow falls each year and winter temperatures can drop as low as 13 degrees. Overall, the village only receives a comfort index score of 34 out of 100. Families may want to consider discussing the measures a facility has in place to cope with cold conditions.
    • low rate of crime can offer peace of mind for families of seniors living with dementia. The rate of violent crime in Fox Lake is 18.5 out of 100, with 100 representing high crime. This is much lower than both the regional average of 37.9 and the national average of 31.1. The rate of property crime, however, scores a 37.5, on par with the national average of 38.1. It may be beneficial to review the security policies and procedures of a facility with staff members.
    • Fox Lake has no available facilities in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Lake Barrington (Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital) and McHenry (Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital), both over a 20-minute drive away.
