Despite being in a region of the United States that commonly has lower senior living costs, Illinois dementia care homes are surprisingly expensive. The state currently ranks ninth in terms of being the least affordable, more expensive than any other Midwest state.

Illinois Alzheimer’s care facilities and dementia care homes are even pricey on average compared to California and Texas. Part of the high costs are driven up by the Chicago area yet for those looking to receive dementia care in Illinois away from the big city, prices are far more affordable.

Cost of Memory Care Facilities in Illinois

Illinois memory care communities average $170 per day, and $5,100 per month. The national average is $160 per day, or $4,800 per month, making Illinois just slightly more expensive than what you would pay elsewhere, particularly in the rest of the Midwest.

Again, the rates are primarily driven up by Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. The third largest metropolitan area in the United States often has prices higher than the national average, where it is not uncommon to find dementia care homes for more than $200 per day. The highest rated dementia care facilities in Chicago often range between $220 to $290 per day in price. Some affordable Alzheimer’s and dementia care homes are available in the Chicago area as well.

However, if the big city is not for you, there are a variety of mid-size to small communities that charge a fraction of Chicago’s price. Some Illinois memory care facilities can get as affordable as $100 per day, with many inexpensive rooms priced between $120 and $150 per day.

Illinois Dementia Care - Amenities

Illinois Alzheimer’s care facilities are known for providing a great number of amenities. The features include standard amenities like daily meal servings, housekeeping, regularly scheduled programs, group exercise, special guest speakers and activities, and much more.

Skilled staff are specially trained to deal with residents suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s whether the unit is a branch of an extended assisted living or nursing home, or the facility is completely dedicated to dementia care.
Staff breaks the care into three primary categories:

  • Personal care
  • Personal productivity
  • Personal leisure

Personal care can include help with everything from getting in and out of bed, dressed, personal hygiene and other daily functions to help with self-esteem and personal appearance.

Meanwhile, personal productivity in Illinois memory care communities involves group participation and social interaction in scheduled activities to help with brain awareness and activity. Visitation hours are offered to include friends and family interaction.

Lastly, senior living should be all about personal leisure. While residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia unfortunately suffer from an awful disease, it shouldn’t prevent them from enjoying life. Rooms should be spotless and every other part of the Alzheimer’s care home should be clean. Leisure activities like doing puzzles, playing games, trying new hobbies, walking, reading and more should be encouraged.

There are days that residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia may feel less inclined to interact or participate in activities. However, those that try to keep their brain active are more equipped for long-term success in a community dedicated to treatment of dementia and Alzheimer’s.
