    What to Consider About Memory Care in Oswego

    The village of Oswego is located in the northeastern region of Illinois in Kendall County, where it is estimated that about eight percent of Medicare beneficiaries age 65 and over have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. In Oswego, seniors make up almost nine percent of the population of 35,000 residents. The area is served by the Alzheimer's Association Illinois Chapter, which provides a variety of resources for seniors and families who have been affected by Alzheimer's. 

    Oswego is home to two memory care facilities, and there are six more in nearby cities, including Plainfield, Aurora and Yorkville. Memory care may be provided in supportive living facilities or any assisted living facility that is licensed and certified by the state to provide care for residents with dementia. 

    • In Illinois, all types of retirement income are exempt from state income tax. This may enable Oswego seniors and families to budget more money toward memory care expenses.
    • The Oswego area is home to world-class medical facilities, such as Edward-Elmhurst Health Center and Immediate Care, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The overall cost of living in Oswego is roughly 20 percent higher than that of the nation as a whole, which may result in higher memory care expenses. Healthcare expenses are slightly lower than state and national averages, however, which may offset other higher expenses. 
    • Oswego is a relatively safe community, which may appeal to families researching memory care options in northeastern Illinois. The village ranks 63 out of 100, meaning that it is safer than 63 percent of all U.S. cities of all sizes. When compared to other similarly sized cities, Oswego's overall crime rate is considerably lower than average.
