Letter from Dolan Memory Care Homes family member:
Thanks so much for sending along the pictures. Mom mentioned that she was “out on the town” and had fun visiting and joking. I think it’s FANTASTIC that you’re getting her out and engaging with her in a positive way (without asking for her to change or adapt to anything she doesn’t wish to). Thank you so much!
I think there are some good signs here in the last couple of weeks that Mom’s adjusting to being at Dolan Homes. Thank you again and please ask her to join on outings whenever feasible.”
What is Memory Care?
What does memory care mean?
Memory care is a particular type of long-term care designed specifically to meet the needs of a person with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. Our memory care also has specific training from Alzheimer’s Association for nurses and care partners to ensure success.
What is the difference between assisted living and memory care?
Memory care is specifically designed and built to support individuals with memory impairment. Memory care offers more support, cuing, and physical assistance than assisted living. Memory care is also locked and secured for safety unlike an assisted living.
How do I know if I need memory care?
A primary care physician or neurologist may recommend memory care. Other signs include: weariness of loved ones caring for individual, increase in health needs, safety concerns, decline in hygiene, susceptible to scams, and challenges with housekeeping, balancing books, and shopping.
How much does memory care cost?
Our memory care cost is all-inclusive, which means each resident pays the same, regardless of how much care he/she receives. We are private pay only. Please call 314 993 9500 to learn more about our cost.
Does medicare or health insurance pay for memory care?
Unfortunately, medicare and health insurance does not pay for memory care. These type of insurances will reimburse for a rehabilitation stay following a hospitalization. Medicare and health insurance do not pay for a long term care stay. Medicaid and long term care insurance can help pay for a memory care stay. Long term care insurance is a policy purchased prior to developing dementia.
Are memory care expenses tax deductible?
If you chose an exclusive community that only offers memory care, you are able to deduct medical expensive if they exceed 7.5% of your adjusted gross income and if you itemize your taxes.
