    What to Consider About Memory Care in Mchenry County

    McHenry County is located along the northern border of Illinois and has a population of over 309,000. Alzheimer's disease is a condition affecting 220,000 seniors across the state of Illinois, including some of the 14 percent of McHenry County's population who are aged 65 years and older.

    As addressed in the Illinois Department of Public Health's Alzheimer's Disease State Plan, ensuring care is available to seniors with dementia is an issue of growing importance. Specialized treatment is offered at 10 memory care facilities across the county, also known as Alzheimer's special care units.

    • The overall cost of living in McHenry County is 114.8, which is higher than both the U.S. national average of 100 and Illinois state average of 102. The biggest factors in this difference are transportation, health and housing costs, which may be something families on a budget should take into consideration.
    • On a scale from one to 100 (highest crime), McHenry County scores a 23.7 for violent crime and a 21.9 in terms of property crime. These rates are lower than the state averages of 27.5 and 31.2 in the same categories, respectively. While McHenry County may be safer than other regions of Illinois, it's still a good idea to review the security policies and procedures an SCU has in place.
    • Even colder than the Illinois state average, winter temperatures in McHenry County can drop to 12 degrees, with around 35 inches of snow expected to fall each year. Consider inquiring about the measures an SCU takes to ensure the safety of its senior residents when conditions are harsh.
    • The state of Illinois is considered to be very tax-friendly for seniors, as full deductions are offered on Social Security benefits, pension and income from retirement savings accounts. These savings may allow seniors to allocate more funds toward the cost of memory care services.
