Frequently asked questions about 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.
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 senior living at our community in West Bend begins at $4,790 for assisted living and $7,600 for memory care per month. Because memory care requires a higher level of support, the cost of memory care is higher than assisted living.
Moving to an assisted living and memory care community can be cost-effective. 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!
The majority of families with relatives in assisted living and memory care facilities pay out of pocket. However, there are options available to help pay for assisted living and memory care, including long-term care insurance policies, life insurance conversions, bridge loans and more.
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.
Many assisted living and memory care communities offer on-site care, like physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy, through partnerships with care providers. Memory care facilities are not generally staffed or designed to provide medical treatment. However, they can provide medication management for routine prescription medication prescribed by a resident’s doctor. Those who need more medical care than what a memory care facility can provide may be better served by a nursing home.
My father was a resident in the memory care unit. The staff was excellent. My dad could not have received better care! Whenever I had a question or asked the staff to look into something, it was done in a very timely matter and communicated to me. I would highly recommend The Waterford at West Bend. Family member
