    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kane County

    Kane County, which contains the Illinois cities of Elgin and Aurora, is home to more than 530,000 people. Over 13 percent of these residents are seniors aged 65 and older, and many of them have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. There are 12 memory care facilities in the county that are capable of providing living arrangements for seniors with cognitive impairments.

    In the state of Illinois, these facilities use several different official names, including Supportive Living Facility and Assisted Living Establishment. If a facility wants to include a Alzheimer’s special care unit or center, they need to disclose that to the Illinois Department of Public Health. 

    • Winters in Kane County can be harsh with average low temperatures in January reaching 14 degrees. In addition, the county averages 28 inches of snow per year. Seniors are vulnerable to the cold, so families may want to check to be sure that their memory care facility has adequate heating in seniors' rooms.
    • The American Lung Association gives the ozone pollution level in Kane County a "D." This is due to the amount of days in the county when high amounts of ozone were detected. Excessive ozone exposure can damage the respiratory and cardiovascular health of seniors.
    • Rates of violent crime in Kane County are one percent worse than the national average. These rates, however, are five percent better than the average for the Chicagoland area. Some families may want to inquire about the security features of memory care facilities if they're worried about these numbers.
    • Kane County has a cost of living index score of 106, making it just six percent above the national average. Prices here are very similar to the surrounding counties, so seniors should expect to have similar expenses in nearby communities.
