    What to Consider About Memory Care in Wilmette

    Wilmette is a village in Cook County, where over 11 percent of Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Some of these seniors may be a part of Wilmette's own senior community, which makes up almost 19 percent of the village's 27,000-person population

    Local families with loved ones in need of memory care services have 16 facilities in the Wilmette area to choose from, including one memory care facility in the city proper and 15 more in nearby communities like Glenview and Park Ridge. While many assisted living facilities in Illinois are licensed to provide dementia care, memory care may also be provided in supportive living facilities, which are solely for those with dementia.

    • Cook County, where Wilmette is located, ranks 22 out of 227 metropolitan areas for high ozone days, earning it an F for ozone pollution from the American Lung Association. This may be a consideration for families whose loved ones have respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular diseases.
    • In Wilmette, seniors do not pay state income tax on any type of retirement income. This may allow for more money in the budget for memory care expenses in this city.
    • The overall cost of living in Wilmette is high, which may result in memory care expenses that are higher than average. Healthcare is relatively affordable in this city, however, which may make it easier to afford the cost of managing a condition like dementia. 
    • Wilmette's crime level is rated 54 out of 100, meaning that the village is safer than 54 percent of communities of all sizes across the country. When compared only to similarly sized communities, Wilmette's crime rate is considerably lower than the average. This may appeal to families who are seeking out memory care for their loved ones.
