Memory Care vs. Long Term Care in Meridian, ID
Memory care facilities are long term care facilities with a special focus on treating and caring for seniors who suffer from some sort of memory impairment condition, such as dementia or Alzheimer's disease. The cost of these services is typically higher than standard long term care, as these patients require more time, attention, and staff resources compared to a senior who can provide basic care for themselves.
There are some facilities that provide both long term care and memory care, while some facilities focus on providing just memory care for seniors. Talk with your loved one’s medical and caregiving team to determine the best type of facility for his or her needs. The best facilities will take care of your loved one’s current needs, while planning for changes in his or her condition, so as to consistently be able to provide the highest possible quality of life for your senior as he or she ages.
Meridian is home to several assisted living and memory care facilities. These facilities offer a wide range of services, including memory care. The cost of assisted living care in Idaho averages about $3,214 a month, which is lower than the national average, and lower than the average cost in neighboring states. Those who need memory care should expect to pay more, as the senior requires more.
Because Medicare and Medicaid typically do not cover the cost of assisted living or memory care, it can be difficult for families to determine how to cover the costs. Private health insurance, if your senior is covered, may help cover some of the cost. A financial aid counselor at the facility you choose should be able to meet with you to determine the payment requirements, and if any out-of-pocket expenses will be required. They may be able to help you apply for any local assistance programs available.
