    What to Consider About Memory Care in Willowbrook

    The small village of Willowbrook is home to just 8,500 people and has a large senior community that makes up over 22 percent of the population. The village is located in DuPage County, where it's projected that over 10 percent of Medicare beneficiaries age 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. 

    Willowbrook has one memory care facility, and there are 16 more in the surrounding region. In this village, as in the rest of the state, memory care is offered in supportive living facilities, which are solely for those with dementia, or in any assisted living facility that is licensed to provide this type of care.

    • The American Lung Association gave DuPage County an F for ozone pollution, indicating very high levels of this type of pollution. Ozone pollution can be particularly harmful to those over the age of 65, particularly those with health conditions like COPD and cardiovascular disease, which may be a consideration for some families researching memory care in Willowbrook.
    • Willowbrook's overall cost of living is about 15 percent higher than both the state and national medians. However, healthcare costs a little less here than in the rest of the state and country, which may make the village an attractive option for those managing chronic conditions like Alzheimer's disease.
    • Compared to U.S. cities of all population sizes, Willowbrook is safer than 46 percent of all cities, and it has a lower crime rate than 36 percent of Illinois communities. When compared only to similarly sized cities, Willowbrook's crime rate is average. Families may want to ensure that the memory care facility they choose takes precautions to keep residents and their belongings secured.
    • Willowbrook seniors do not pay state income tax on any type of retirement income, including Social Security benefits and income from pensions and retirement accounts. This may allow for more money toward memory care expenses in Willowbrook.
