The Clare has been deemed one of the six best memory care facilities in Chicago in 2020, according to MemoryCare.com.
The ranking identifies the top memory care communities in Chicago based on location, access to experts, facility features and amenities. MemoryCare.com, a comprehensive resource for caregivers and older adults living with memory impairment, completed hands-on research and compiled online reviews from residents and families to make their final decisions.
“We are honored to be named one of the best memory care communities in Chicago,” says Monica Rusboldt, Administrator of The Terraces at The Clare. “We prioritize the well-being of our residents above everything else. This recognition demonstrates that our quality of care resonates and is successful.”
Alzheimer’s disease, along with other forms of dementia, is a serious concern in adults over the age of 65. This is especially true in cities like Chicago, where the senior population is on the rise. In fact, Chicago’s senior population grew by 11.4% between 2013 and 2017, according to census data. Deaths caused or partly caused by Alzheimer’s disease rose 34.7% within that same timeframe, MemoryCare.com reported.
This places memory care communities like The Clare at the forefront of the conversation.
“In addition to providing a safe environment, memory care programs seek to delay or halt cognitive decline while providing the opportunity for a social, independent lifestyle,” MemoryCare.com stated.
Likewise, memory care facilities are crucial to managing behavioral problems and facilitating the highest possible quality of life.
