What to Consider About Memory Care in Highland Park

Approximately 22.1 percent of Highland Park’s residents are at least 65 years old. Some of these individuals reside in the city's two memory care units, which help to care for some of the state’s 220,000 Alzheimer’s patients and others with dementia-related conditions. The care of residents in these facilities is outlined by the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia Services Act, which sets strict standards for these services. The Illinois Department of Public Health oversees compliance and handles issues related to violations.

The families of memory care residents in Highland Park may enjoy knowing that the city has a low crime rate. Nationally, the violent crime rate is 31.1, but it is only 17.1 in Highland Park. Property crime is also less common here with the city’s rate coming in at 18.4, which is lower than the national rate of 38.1. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Highland Park

  • Cold, snowy winters in Highland Park aren’t conducive to many outdoor activities - the city gets around 35 inches of snow per year. Memory care residents might enjoy spending time outside closer to summer. In July, the highs reach around 82 degrees. An average of 37 inches of rain falls annually, which is slightly less than the national average of 39 inches.
  • Highland Park’s air quality score is 66, which is lower than the national score of 58. Individuals who have asthma, COPD, or other respiratory complications might breathe a bit easier here thanks to the lower level of hazardous air pollutants present here most of the time.
  • The overall cost of living in Highland Park is a bit misleading. The city’s index comes in at 151.1, 51.1 percent higher than the national index. This is due primarily to the cost of housing in the city. The cost of healthcare index is 99, so memory care residents will pay just a tad less for health expenses than the U.S. national average. 
  • The Highland Park is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Highland Park Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
