What to Consider About Memory Care in Wheeling

The village of Wheeling is situated in Cook County, Illinois, where more than 11 percent of Medicare recipients aged 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Dementia is most common among seniors and is expected to become even more prevalent in the coming years as the number of older Americans increases.

In Wheeling, the senior community makes up more than 13 percent of the population of 39,000 residents. The village has only one memory care facility to serve local seniors with dementia, but there are 38 more nearby. In most cases, memory care is provided in supportive living facilities, but it is also offered in assisted living facilities that have obtained proper licensing and certification. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Wheeling

  • In Cook County, including the village of Wheeling, ozone pollution levels are very high. The American Lung Association gave the region an "F" for ozone pollution and ranked it 22 out of 227 metropolitan areas for high ozone days. Wheeling's air quality may adversely affect the health of seniors with certain respiratory conditions.
  • Wheeling's overall cost of living is about 10 percent higher than the national average, but healthcare costs are nearly 6 percent lower than in the nation as a whole. This could make the city a financially feasible option for families whose senior loved ones have a chronic medical condition such as dementia. 
  • Safety in Wheeling is rated 67 out of 100, meaning that the village is safer than 67 percent of communities and cities of all sizes across the country. When compared only to communities with similarly sized populations, Wheeling's crime rate is quite a bit lower than the median. Families may wish to ensure that the memory care facility they choose takes measures to keep residents and their belongings safe.
  • While Illinois has its own estate tax and a relatively high sales tax, all retirement income is exempt from state income tax. This may make memory care in Wheeling more affordable for seniors and their families. 

Paying for Memory Care in Wheeling

Memory Care costs in Wheeling start around $6,811 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,694 per month.

It’s important to note that memory care rates in Wheeling and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.
