What to Consider About Memory Care in Shiloh
Shiloh, Illinois, is home to 13,090 people, and 12.5 percent of the city's population consists of seniors age 65 and older. Some of these seniors are part of the state's 220,000 people living with Alzheimer's disease. To accommodate this demographic, Shiloh has one memory care facility with seven more units located in nearby communities.
In the Shiloh area, and the rest of the state, memory care units are within supportive care facilities that are licensed through the Illinois Department of Public Health. They are required to meet specific building requirements and have specially trained staff to meet the needs of seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
- Shiloh seniors don't have to worry about paying state income taxes on their Social Security payments, pension payments, and withdrawals from retirement accounts. This could help seniors on a fixed income afford the monthly costs of residing in a memory care facility.
- Unfortunately, the overall cost of living in Shiloh is 3 percent higher than the state average and 2 percent higher than the national average. This could result in higher-than-average memory care costs. The cost of healthcare services, however, averages 5 percent lower than the state average and 4 percent lower than the U.S. average.
- The Shiloh area is prone to cold, snowy winter weather, which could make it difficult for seniors to spend time outside their memory care facilities. The average low temperature in January is 32 degrees F. During the summer months, the weather is pretty moderate. While rain is common, the average high in July is only 78.
- The Shiloh area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Memorial Hospital East, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
