    What to Consider About Memory Care in Vernon Hills

    Because 220,000 seniors have Alzheimer’s disease in Illinois, numerous cities, such as Vernon Hills, offer a myriad of memory care facilities to serve those with any form of dementia. Vernon Hills' 13 percent senior population can choose from 14 memory care facilities in the surrounding area. 

    In addition to the memory care facilities throughout the state, Illinois offers seniors with Alzheimer's or any form of dementia access to various regional Alzheimer's disease assistance centers (or ADA centers) for extra support. Vernon Hills is within 40 miles of two of the three ADA centers throughout the state.

    • Seniors benefit from tax cuts when living in Vernon Hills. Throughout the state of Illinois, Social Security retirement benefits and pension income are exempt from taxation, which could allow those searching for memory care to allot more funds towards memory care facility costs.
