What to Consider About Memory Care in Peoria

Statewide, there are approximately 220,000 people with Alzheimer’s disease, and in Peoria senior citizens make up around 13.7 percent of the city’s population. When these individuals and those with other dementia-related conditions need to find residential care, they will find three memory care facilities in Peoria. The Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia Services Act determines the care regulations in these facilities, called Memory Care Units (MCU).

Residents MCUs might appreciate the relatively low cost of living in the city. Peoria’s cost of living index is only 79.3, which is considerably less than the national index of 100. Unfortunately, the health cost index is 104, which means that health care needs are a little more expensive in Peoria than the national average.

  • Senior citizens can enjoy spending time outdoors during the summers thanks to mild heat. In July, the highs reach around 85 degrees. The winters here are frigid with an average of 23 inches of snow per year and January lows around 16 degrees.
  • Memory care patients who have respiratory conditions or illnesses might enjoy the crisp air here. Nationally, the air quality rate is 58, but Peoria’s is 66, which means there are fewer hazardous air pollutants here than the average city.
