    What to Consider About Memory Care in Saint Clair County

    The oldest county in Illinois, St. Clair, is home to over 260,000 residents, 15.2 percent of whom are 65 years of age and older. With approximately 220,000 Illinois seniors currently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, the state has developed an Alzheimer's Disease State Plan to ensure those living with dementia have access to the necessary care.

    Memory care facilities, known in St. Clair County and the rest of Illinois as Alzheimer's special care units, are available to provide specialized treatment and can be found in five locations across the county.

    • The cost of living in St. Clair County is 86.2. This rating is based on the U.S. national average of 100, with the largest contributing factor in this difference being low housing costs, though groceries and utilities are also below national averages. This may make St. Clair County an appealing option for seniors looking to save on daily living expenses, so they can put more of their funds toward the cost of memory care.
    • While winters in St. Clair County are milder than they are on average in Illinois, summers can be incredibly hot and humid, with highs climbing to nearly 90 degrees. Families may wish to check that a facility has precautionary measures in place to keep seniors safe when conditions get extreme.
    • Seniors in Illinois are not taxed on Social Security benefits, pension and income from retirement savings accounts, which may allow more money to be put toward the costs associated with memory care services.
    • On a scale out of 100, with 100 being high crime, St. Clair County scores a 50.7 for violent crime and a 46.7 for property crime. These rates are higher than the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1 in the same categories, respectively, as well as averages seen across the state. Families may wish to ask about any policies and procedures that are in place to ensure senior residents are kept out of harm's way.
