What to Consider About Memory Care in South Barrington

The village of Barrington is located in Cook and Lake Counties in Illinois and has a population of 10,300 people, 21 percent of whom are seniors 65 and older. It's estimated that 11.2 percent of seniors receiving Medicaid have Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. Barrington seniors looking for a local memory care facility have four to choose from, with 39 more within a 15-mile radius of the village. 

The Illinois Department of Public Health regulates assisted living and memory care facilities in the state, including those in Barrington. These communities may be housed in their own properties or, more commonly, co-located with assisted living facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in South Barrington

  • Barrington's score of 149 puts its cost of living well above the state and national averages. The village's housing cost is 224 percent as high as the national average. This can impact operational costs at memory care facilities, which may result in higher monthly fees.
  • The village receives 37 inches of rain, which is somewhat lower than the national average of 39. However, the city receives 37 inches of snow, 11 inches higher than the national average of 26 inches. This can make it difficult for visiting family members to get back and forth to Barrington's memory care facilities. In addition, winter lows reach a chilly 14 degrees here, while summer highs reach the 80s.
  • The air quality in Barrington is 69, 10 points higher than the national average. This could be welcome news to families of seniors with respiratory issues such as COPD.
  • Illinois exempts nearly all retirement income from taxation, including Social Security, pension income and retirement savings accounts. This is helpful for Barrington seniors living on a fixed budget.
