Memory care

Our specialized program, Magnolia Trails™, goes beyond the typical management of Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia by providing care for the whole person–mind, body and spirit. Our caregivers work with families and their loved ones’ health care providers to create a unique plan for each resident. 

We tailor the days to meet seniors where they are at each moment. From daily interactions and activities to the environment and food, every aspect of the experience we provide is centered on the resident.

Frequently asked questions about assisted living and memory care

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 senior living cost in Indianapolis?

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 Indianapolis begins at $3,177 for assisted living and $3,812 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.

What services are included in senior 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.

Are medical services offered on-site?

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.

FSSA (Family and Social Services Administration) is issuing The Wellington at Southport funding to support our direct service workforce in the amount of $132,763.17. We plan to use the funding in the following three ways to invest in our Direct Service Workers (DSW):

  • Bonuses: To provide immediate support to our workforce, we plan to issue bonuses to DSWs. We will dedicate 15% or greater of the grant amount towards this activity. These bonuses will be in place throughout 2023.
  • Hourly wage increase: As a part of our long-term strategy, we will be increasing hourly wages for all DSWs in 2023. We will dedicate 40% of the grant amount towards this activity. The hourly wage increase will be issued based on current salary and hire date.  
  • Benefits: In order to relieve some of the pressure of increased cost of living expense, we authorized a free meal program. We are initiating a discretionary 401(k) match in 2023, and changing our PTO program, as well as offering employee engagement activities as part of our recruitment and retention efforts. We will dedicate 40% of the grant amount towards these activities as they will increase costs to the company.

Our goal is to use the funding as soon as possible so that we can provide immediate funding to support our workforce. We are aiming to spend all funding by December 31, 2023. Please reach out to Goodwell Chavunduka, [email protected], with any questions regarding how the funds will be spent.
