Things to consider when evaluating cost
Typically, Dementia, Memory & Alzheimer’s Care cost more than non-Dementia or Alzheimer’s type care. In general, Memory Care Units in large Assisted Living Facilities can range in cost from $ 4,000-$8000 per month. Residents with dementia require a lot of time & patience from a staff that have the specialized skills & training needed to deliver the best outcomes.
Tender Loving Care Senior Residence recognizes the value & benefit the residents receive by having high staffing ratios of 3 caregivers to 10 residents, along with consistent hands on interaction from all members of the care team; caregivers, management, doctor & nurse. All members of the care team have special training in caring for those with Alzheimer’s & Dementia.
We suggest you compare the dollar cost & consider the intrinsic value of how much continuity of care you get for the price. It is important to meet the entire care team including; the administrator, management, doctors, nurses & direct care workers before choosing any care setting. It’s important to know who & what you are getting, for example who will assist with emergencies? Is the administrator available 24hrs to personally assist you and your loved one.?
Choosing a care setting can be overwhelming, with many factors to consider. While cost is a significant factor, it is important to look at the entire picture and compare the amount and quality of service you get and who is actually providing the care and coordination to ensure you are getting the highest quality of care for the best value.
Continuity of Care
When considering senior & dementia care many under value the benefits of continuity of care with the direct care team. Continuity of Care is only obtained through developing & maintaining on-going relationships with all members of the care team.
Too often, in today’s health care system the team players are changing frequently: seeing different doctors, nurses & caregivers never getting a real opportunity to develop the trusting relationships needed to deliver high quality continuity of care. These relationships are especially important for seniors as their independence decreases as they start to experience the physical, emotional & social changes that come with aging. It is important to maintain those relationships & continuity to receive the best quality of care & value.
The care team of Tender Loving Care Senior Residence has the values & principles needed to deliver high quality care.
