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.

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.

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.
