What to Consider About Memory Care in Lake Bluff

Nestled along the shores of Lake Michigan, Lake Bluff is a quaint village with a population of around 5,600. Roughly 17.6 percent of its residents are aged 65 and older, and in a state where 220,000 seniors are currently living with Alzheimer's disease, access to care is a subject of increasing importance. This concern has been addressed by the Illinois Department of Public Health in its Alzheimer's Disease State Plan, which seeks to ensure access to facilities that provide dedicated dementia care. Though there is only one facility to offer this type of specialized treatment in Lake Bluff, 18 additional memory care facilities are available in nearby communities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Lake Bluff

  • A low rate of crime can offer added peace of mind for the families of seniors living in a memory care facility. In Lake Bluff, crime rates are much lower than both the Illinois and U.S. national averages. Out of a score of 100, which is considered to be high crime, Lake Bluff scores a 9.9 for violent crime and a 12.5 for property crime, compared to national scores of 31.1 and 38.1 and regional scores of 37.9 and 34.9 in the same categories.
  • Compared to both statewide and national averages, the overall cost of living in Lake Bluff is considerably higher. It scores a rating of 166, while the Illinois average receives a 102 and U.S. national average scores 100. Families may want to keep this in mind when deciding where to allocate memory care funds.
  • As is seen across the state of Illinois, winter weather in Lake Bluff can be unfavorable. Temperatures are known to drop below 16 degrees, and an average 38 inches of snow is expected to fall. Families may wish to consider discussing the precautions a memory care facility takes to ensure the safety of its senior residents when conditions get harsh.
  • The state of Illinois does not tax seniors on their Social Security benefits, pension income and income from retirement savings accounts, which may present additional funds that can be put toward memory care.
