Frequently asked questions about our care options

What is the difference between assisted living and memory care?

Assisted living can improve the daily life of seniors, especially for those who are starting to struggle on their own. Residents will receive support with everyday activities including bathing, getting dressed, incontinence care, help with mobility and more.

On the other hand, memory care facilities are specifically geared toward those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Assisted living can be an option for seniors in the early stages of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. If a higher level of care is needed due to advanced dementia, memory care is more suitable.

How much does assisted living cost in San Antonio, Texas?

There are many factors that affect pricing. This includes the type of apartment, such as a studio, one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment. However, the cost of assisted living at our community in San Antionio begins at $3,099 per month.

Moving to an assisted living community can help you save money! Expenses that are usually included as part of the monthly rent include utilities, basic cable and Wi-Fi (in some communities), groceries, meals, dining service, cleaning/housekeeping, maintenance, transportation services, and of course, activities to keep you entertained! 

There are many options available to help pay for assisted living, including long-term care insurance policies, life insurance conversions, bridge loans and more. If you meet certain financial and health requirements, Medicaid may cover some costs for assisted living. Medicare doesn’t cover long-term care in an assisted living facility.

What services are included in assisted living rent?

At our community, staff are on-call 24/7 to respond to resident needs or emergencies. We offer social activities, meals, support with chores like housekeeping and laundry, medication management and help with tasks like bathing and getting dressed. 

Residents generally have their own apartments, although some communities offer shared apartments to make them more affordable. Assisted living facilities are state-licensed with governing regulations that vary from state to state.

Are medical services offered on-site?

Many assisted living communities offer on-site care through partnerships with home health, hospice and medical providers. Some services that are available include physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.
