Memory care requires a more qualified skilled staff to ensure the safety of all the residents, therefore the cost is usually higher, but still comparable. Costs vary, depending on the following factors:
- Level of care needed
- Progression of aggression & behavior issues
- Additional services that may be needed
The U.S. national average cost of memory care for a single resident was almost $5,000 a month. This cost does vary widely by care facility, however. For example, some communities were as low as $1,500 per month and other communities as high as $7,000 per month.
MEMORY CARE: DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMER’S
Alzheimer’s disease is a specific form of dementia. As Alzheimer’s disease or dementia progresses, the level of care and assistance a person requires increases. While many families prefer to keep their loved one home for as long as possible, a person who suffers from dementia and Alzheimer’s will eventually require 24-hour supervised care in catered settings.
For example, Alzheimer’s living environments have secured areas to prevent wandering; a common symptom of the disease. And typically, residents in memory care need help with medications, bathing, grooming eating dressing and other daily tasks. Memory care provides intensive, long-term medical care to seniors with serious health and dementia conditions in a fully-staffed and monitored facility.
