What to Consider About Memory Care in Mchenry
McHenry is a city in northeastern Illinois in McHenry County, where nearly 9 percent of Medicare recipients age 65 and over have Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. Some of these seniors reside in the city of McHenry, where the senior community makes up over 14 percent of the population of 27,000 residents.
McHenry is home to two memory care facilities, and there are six more in Cary, Crystal Lake and Fox Lake. In Illinois, memory care may be provided in supportive living facilities, which are exclusively for those with dementia, or any assisted living facility that has the necessary certification from the state to provide dementia care.
- According to data gathered by the American Lung Association, ozone pollution levels in McHenry County are very high, which may pose a risk to seniors, particularly those who have respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses. This may be a consideration for families seeking memory care in the McHenry region.
- Illinois exempts all types of retirement income from state income tax, including Social Security benefits and income from pensions and retirement savings accounts. This may allow for more money in the memory care budget in McHenry.
- On a 100-point crime index, McHenry rates 41, meaning that the city is safer than 41 percent of U.S. cities and communities of all population sizes. However, when compared only to cities with similar population sizes, McHenry's overall crime rate is notably lower than average. This may make the city a good option for safety-minded families who are researching memory care.
- McHenry is a slightly more expensive city to live in, with living costs in general and healthcare costs in particular coming in about 7 percent higher than the national average. This may be a consideration for seniors and families with restrictive memory care budgets.
