What to Consider About Memory Care in Oak Lawn

In Cook County, Illinois, over 11 percent of Medicare recipients aged 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia, and that number is expected to increase as the population continues to age. Some of these seniors with dementia may reside in the village of Oak Lawn, which is home to 56,000 residents and has a senior community that makes up nearly 18 percent of the population.

Oak Lawn families who are looking for memory care services for loved ones find one memory care facility in the village. This facility is a supportive living facility, which provides care exclusively for those with dementia. There are an additional 14 memory care facilities nearby, some of which are independent and others of which share campuses with senior living facilities that provide other levels of care. 

  • Oak Lawn seniors do not pay state income tax on any retirement income, which may leave them more money to put toward memory care services in this region.
  • Cook County, where Oak Lawn is located, is rated 22 out of 227 metropolitan areas for high ozone days and was given an F for ozone pollution from the American Lung Association. Seniors are at risk from breathing in ozone pollution, especially those with existing lung conditions, so Oak Lawn's air quality may be a consideration for some families researching local memory care options.
  • Healthcare expenses in Oak Lawn are slightly below the national average, which may reduce how much money families and seniors pay to manage chronic conditions like Alzheimer's disease. The overall cost of living is a little higher than the U.S. average, mainly due to the high transportation costs in the region. 
  • Oak Lawn is a relatively safe village, with property crime and violent crime rates that are lower than the national average. Even so, as they are touring local memory care facilities, families may want to find out what measures are taken to keep residents and their belongings safe.
