Frequently Asked Questions
What is the cost of memory care?
The higher level of care and supervision in an Alzheimer’s residential care home comes at a price. On average, assisted living costs $4,000 a month, and assisted living with memory care units add another $1,000 to $4,000 a month. Costs vary state to state and are impacted by the level of care provided.
Our monthly rates start at $5,405.
How can I decide between assisted living and memory care?
Assisted living and memory care senior living communities provide many of the same services, including housing, meals, and help with bathing, grooming, and toileting. However, memory care communities or neighborhoods that specialize in caring for seniors with all stages of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of memory loss feature services and amenities that prioritize the quality of life for a person with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
In top-tier memory care communities, environmental security is a key design feature. To prevent wandering, many communities are equipped with locked entrances and exits, as well as keypad entries, obscured exits, and doorbells signaling entering and exiting. To avoid injuries from falls, dementia care communities feature designs that minimize confusion. In addition, they offer calming therapies in soothing spaces. This can help reduce agitation and confusion that can lead to aggression or self-injury.
The staff in dementia care communities are also specially trained in care planning for those living with memory loss. The staff understands how to effectively prevent and manage difficult dementia behaviors. They also understand the balance of encouraging residents to stay as independent as possible while providing the support they need. Many communities, including Charter, have a higher staff-to-resident ratio than assisted living, which allows for more one-on-one attention throughout the day.
Does Medicare cover memory care?
Medicare and Medicare Advantage Plans generally will not pay for room and board or personal care in a memory care community. They will, however, pay for the medical care the facility provides. Veterans benefits typically help cover the cost for eligible veterans and surviving spouses who are over age 65.
