COST OF DEMENTIA CARE
Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Memory Care are generally more expensive than non- Alzheimer’s care. Most seniors will have medical, physical and cognitive care needs. The cost for an Assisted Living Alzheimer’s/ Memory care unit can be $4,000-$8000 per month. Residential Care Homes like Tender Loving Care Senior Residence are competitively priced with those settings. The frequent changes to management, staff, and doctors that often occur in in senior care settings can have a negative impact on the Alzheimer patient and is something to consider when choosing an Alzheimer Care setting.
We would suggest you compare the dollar cost and also consider the intrinsic value of how much continuity of care you get for the price, by meeting the entire care team including; the administrator, management, doctors, nurses and direct care workers before choosing any expensive Alzheimer Care Setting.
