In Illinois, there are approximately 220,000 people who have Alzheimer’s, and this is expected to increase by 18.2 percent by 2025. Since these seniors have special needs, Illinois passed the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias Services Act, which sets strict guidelines for facilities with memory care units. Increased training for employees who have direct contact with patients and other requirements are all checked by the Illinois Department of Public Health. 

  • Residents of Rockford experience all four seasons and will want to be prepared for cold, snowy winters and the warm, rainy summers. The city gets around 35 inches of rain and the same average amount of snow per year.
