What to Consider About Memory Care in Monroe County

Illinois’ historic bluff precinct, Monroe County, is home to 32,957 residents, 14.1 percent of whom are aged 65 or older. Some of these seniors may be among the 220,000 Illinois residents who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Monroe County has two memory care facilities, with one in Columbia and the other in Waterloo.

In Monroe County, like the rest of the state of Illinois, memory care facilities are licensed by the Illinois Department of Health and are referred to as assisted living facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Monroe County has a high cost of living. On a scale where 100 is the U.S. median, Monroe County ranks 100.3. Groceries, healthcare and transportation expenses also rank higher than the average. However, housing ranks much lower at 87, which might be beneficial to families hoping to relocate to be closer to their loved one.
  • The crime rate in Monroe County falls below the national average. On a scale where 100 represents the highest crime areas, Monroe County ranks 21.8 for violent crime compared to the national average of 31.1, and 21.9 for property crime compared to the U.S. average of 38.1. These lower crime rates may give seniors and their families peace of mind.
  • The state of Illinois, including Monroe County, doesn’t levy taxes on social security benefits, pensions or retirement savings account income. The money saved on taxes could result in more money to allocate to memory care budgets.
  • The weather in Monroe County is warm in the summer when highs hit 88 degrees, and cold in the winter when the lows dip to 23. Although Monroe County only receives 11 inches of snow annually compared to the national average of 26 inches, it gets more than its share of rainfall with 43 inches compared to the U.S. average of 39 inches.
