Alzheimer's Disease

Chicago, Illinois is a large city of 2,695,598 million residents. Of this population, 10.3% of Chicago's residents are over the age of 65, which is slightly lower than the Illinois State average of 12.5%, and lower than our national average of 13% (Source: U.S. Census Bureau QuickFacts for Chicago). However, the number of seniors in Chicago will most certainly grow in the coming years, so will the need for assisted living and long-term-care options.
