    What to Consider About Memory Care in Mclean County

    McLean County, which is located in North Central Illinois, is home to about 172,000 people and has a senior community that makes up nearly 13 percent of the population. Alzheimer's disease and dementia are a little less prevalent here than in the United States as a whole, with roughly 9.7 percent of seniors on Medicare living with this diagnosis, versus the U.S. average of 11.3 percent. 

    Families seeking memory care services for a loved one find three memory care facilities in McLean County, including two in Bloomington and one in Normal. Some of these facilities are assisted living facilities that are licensed to provide dementia care, while others are supportive living facilities that only provide dementia care. 

    • Ozone pollution levels in McLean County are relatively low, with the county receiving a B for this type of pollution from the American Lung Association. This may make the county an appealing option for families whose senior loved one in memory care has a respiratory or cardiovascular condition. 
    • Illinois seniors do not pay state income tax on any type of retirement income, including Social Security benefits, withdrawals from retirement savings accounts or disbursements from pensions. This may leave more money in the budget for memory care expenses in McLean County.
    • Over the course of a year, temperatures in McLean County range between 15 degrees and 85 degrees, and the county receives 39 inches of rain and 20 inches of snow annually. To keep residents comfortable, many memory care facilities have individual climate control in bedrooms.  
    • McLean County has a relatively low cost of living that is a little more than 10 percent lower than the national average. This may result in lower memory care expenses, making the county a good option for families and seniors with restrictive memory care budgets. Healthcare expenses are roughly on par with state and national averages.
