    What to Consider About Memory Care in Peoria County

    Peoria County is situated along the Illinois River midway between Chicago and St. Louis with a population of around 183,000. Of these residents, 16.5 percent are aged 65 and older and may be living with Alzheimer's disease, a diagnosis that affects 220,000 seniors across the state. 

    The Illinois Department of Public Health has drafted an Alzheimer's Disease State Plan to ensure proper care is available for seniors with dementia at memory care facilities, known in Peoria County and the rest of the state as Alzheimer's special care units, three of which are located within county limits.

    • On a scale from one to 100, with 100 being high crime, Peoria County scores a 47.3 for violent crime and a 43.9 in terms of property crime. These numbers are much higher than the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively. Consider asking about an SCU's security system and any policies or procedures they have in place to ensure seniors are safe.
    • For seniors looking to save on daily living expenses, Peoria County is a budget-friendly option. The cost of living is just 81.1 compared to the  national average of 100 and Illinois state average of 102. Housing is the biggest factor in this difference, though residents can expect to save on grocery and transportation costs.
    • Like much of Illinois, Peoria County has a cold winter climate. Temperatures can drop below 17 degrees, and around 23 inches of snowfall is expected each year. It's a good idea to ensure that a memory care facility has proper precautions in place, so seniors aren't exposed to the elements when weather conditions become harsh.
    • Peoria County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as UnityPoint Health Methodist Hospital and OSF St. Francis Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
