What to Consider About Memory Care in Mokena

Will County's village of Mokena has a little over 20,000 residents, nearly 12 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. According to the Alzheimer's Association, people in this age bracket are at a greater risk of Alzheimer's disease. Over 10 percent of the seniors who receive Medicare benefits in the area have Alzheimer's or dementia. 

In Mokena, memory care services may be offered either in supportive living facilities, which are solely for those with dementia, or in an assisted living facility that is licensed to provide dementia-related care. Mokena has one memory care facility, and there are 18 more in surrounding cities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Mokena

  • The American Lung Association gave Will County a grade of B for ozone pollution. Low pollution levels may benefit seniors with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease, which may make the city an appealing option for memory care for some families.
  • In Illinois, seniors do not pay state income tax on any type of retirement income. Because Mokena seniors keep the entirety of their Social Security benefits, pension income and income from retirement accounts, they may have more money for memory care.
  • The overall cost of living in Mokena is about 17 percent higher than the national average, which may result in memory care costs that are a little higher than average. Healthcare expenses, including hospital stays, doctor's visits and dental care, cost roughly the same as they do in the nation as a whole. 
  • The rates of property and violent crime are relatively low in Mokena. On a 100-point scale, with a low rate indicating less crime, Mokena's property crime rate is 17.4, compared to the national average of 38.1, and the violent crime rate is 18.8, versus the national average of 31.1. This may appeal to safety-minded families seeking memory care in the region. 

Paying for Memory Care in Mokena

Memory Care costs in Mokena start around $7,375 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,694 per month.
