What to Consider About Memory Care in New Lenox

It is estimated that there are currently 220,000 seniors across the state of Illinois with Alzheimer's disease. The village of New Lenox has a population of over 26,000, and 11.2 percent of those individuals are aged 65 and older. For members of this demographic who are living with dementia, care can be found at New Lenox's only local memory care facility or at one of the 14 other options available in neighboring communities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in New Lenox

  • New Lenox is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Silver Cross Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • As seen across the state, New Lenox experiences harsh winters. Temperatures can reach a low of 16 degrees, and an average of 30 inches of snow is expected to fall in a season. To ensure loved ones are protected from these cold conditions, family members may wish to discuss the measures a memory care facility has in place to ensure the safety and well-being of its residents during the winter months.
  • While the Chicago-Naperville-Elgin metropolitan area is known for having a high rate of crime, the crime rates in New Lenox are significantly lower, which may offer peace of mind to families of a loved one with dementia. Violent crime receives a rating of 18.1 out of 100, compared to the regional average of 37.9 and national average of 31.1. Property crime is also low at just 17.8, compared to 34.9 and 38.1 in the same population segments.
  • With a score of 115.4, the cost of living in New Lenox is slightly higher than the U.S. national average, which has a base score of 100. Housing and transportation costs are the largest contributing factors to this difference.
