Costs of memory care in the Scottsdale area

On average, residents at Scottsdale’s memory care facilities that partner with A Place for Mom pay $5,414 per month for their stays.[02] This pricing comes from A Place for Mom’s proprietary data and reflects varying floor plans and amenities. Likewise, it also includes access to tailored in-house health care, including full medication management, on-site nursing, and visiting health professionals. Because this cost is an average, however, your loved one’s individual memory care costs may vary depending on a facility’s location as well as their care requirements and chosen floor plan, layout, and add-on services.

The following costs represent average baseline costs for assisted living in the area without any add-on fees.

How people pay for memory care in Scottsdale

When it comes to paying for a memory care stay in Scottsdale, families have a few options at their disposal. Many residents and families prefer paying via private income sources, but others opt to use additional benefits to cover their fees.

In this section, we’ll provide more information about the payment methods available to families: private payment, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, Medicaid, and Medicare.

Private pay methods

In Scottsdale, many seniors and their loved ones rely on at least some private funding to pay for their memory care stays. This could include funds from savings accounts, Social Security benefits, pensions, returns on retirement or investment accounts, and inheritances. However, you can also consider the following resources:

Caregiver Resources
Can You Use Your HSA for Long-Term Care Costs?

Reverse Mortgages and Long-Term Care: The Pros and Cons
By Merritt Whitley, senior living writer and editor
VA benefits
13764

Number of veterans who live in Scottsdale, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

About 44% of Scottsdale veterans are 75 or older, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Using VA benefits to pay for memory care in Scottsdale

Is your loved one a veteran? If so, they may be eligible for benefits provided by the VA that could help defray their memory care costs. However, you should be sure to reach out to a dedicated veterans services officer before applying for these benefits. These VA-vetted individuals are there to help families navigate the complex world of VA benefits, and chatting with them is critical to ensuring your loved one receives all of the aid they’re qualified for.

Here, A Place for Mom will share more information about VA programs that could help you cover a loved one’s memory care fees. We’ll also cover local organizations who are there to help vets and their families when it comes to understanding the benefits they’re entitled to.

VA and tax benefits for vets

If your loved one receives a VA Pension already, it’s worth looking into the VA’s Aid and Attendance benefit. Aid and Attendance can help cover senior care costs by increasing payments made to VA Pensions, and this extra funding can then be spent on in-home care services that improve the vet’s quality of life in a memory care community.

The Grand Canyon State also offers veterans useful tax benefits that could grant them the savings needed to stay in a memory care facility: Arizona doesn’t tax military retirement payments, and Maricopa County allows personal tax exemptions for vets living with a disability who received an honorable discharge.

Reaching out to local VBCs

Arizona’s veterans services officers are called Veteran Benefits Counselors (VBCs). There are more than 50 of these individuals statewide who are there to assist vets and their families with navigating the VA benefits system. Because they can help uncover VA benefits a vet might qualify for that they might not otherwise be aware of, we highly recommend reaching out to a local VBC.

Local organizations helping Scottsdale’s vets

Phoenix, located just a 12-mile drive from Scottsdale, has a dedicated Veterans Administration Regional Benefit Office that can help vets and their families with any benefits-related concerns. It can also put vets in touch with the right expert to answer their questions, if needed.

Of course, seniors also have access to a host of veterans organizations in Scottsdale that aren’t government affiliated. Besides offering a sense of community, Scottsdale’s American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), and Disabled American Veterans (DAV) chapters can help answer questions or concerns surrounding VA benefits.

Medicaid

Seniors or their loved ones who are looking into Scottsdale’s memory care facilities have Medicaid as a potential payment option. This health insurance program is for low-income seniors who meet certain income restrictions, and Arizona’s Medicaid program is known as the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS).

Although Medicaid will cover some memory care costs, the AHCCCS won’t pay for custodial costs within memory care facilities (like room and board), but it does use the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver programs to cover in-home health services designated as medically necessary.

AHCCCS eligibility requirements for individuals — including income limits — are available either on this page or in this guide. Seniors who need to apply for Medicaid in Arizona can use the Health-e-Arizona website or fill out and send in a paper application.

If you need help understanding whether your loved one might qualify for Medicaid or how to best take advantage of their current Medicaid coverage, it’s best to contact the local AHCCCS office. Likewise, the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) can address your Medicaid questions and tell you about other relevant programs a loved one could qualify for. Lastly, the dedicated Medicaid ombudsman may be useful to reach out to for guidance.

Medicare

Medicare is a health insurance program for individuals 65 and older that’s offered through the federal government, and it’s another potential way to pay for memory care stays. Although Medicare doesn’t cover custodial costs in these communities such as room and board, it can pay for medically necessary in-home care needs.

Individuals living with dementia may also qualify for Medicare’s Advantage Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) Model. This is meant to ensure patients experiencing chronic conditions receive additional support, such as cost-sharing and special Medicare Advantage plans.

If you’d like to learn more about Medicare, the program has this helpful portal, which includes information on qualifications and the application process. Those who are interested in applying for Medicare can do so in person at a local Security Administration (SSA) office or fill out an online application.

What types of care will Medicare cover?

Medicare has two major components: Part A, its hospital insurance, and Part B, the plan’s medical insurance. The former will cover services such as inpatient care in hospitals, psychiatric treatment, in-home care, and care at skilled nursing facilities, and the latter will pay for services such as outpatient care, diagnostic radiology, and some preventive services. Through these parts of Medicare, recipients can generally get diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, and care planning for any stage of Alzheimer’s and other memory care conditions.[05]

More comprehensive information on other services Medicare will cover through its separate parts is available here.

Arizona Medicare resources

Arizona has many state and local resources available to help seniors and their families apply for and understand Medicare. This includes services from the Arizona Department of Economic Security’s (DES) Division of Aging and Adult Services, which is responsible for Arizona’s State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) and Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP). SHIP offers state residents free counseling on Medicare concerns. The SMP exists to help families and caregivers prevent and recognize Medicare fraud. Similarly, Health-e-Arizona is another state resource that can help residents understand the Medicare benefits they might qualify for.

If you’re more interested in receiving payment relief, however, Arizona’s Medicare Savings Program is your best bet. If they’re having trouble paying their Medicare bills, seniors may be able to receive assistance covering co-payments, premiums, and deductibles. The Medicare Savings Program’s eligibility requirements are available online.

Phoenix is home to an Area Agency on Aging (AAA) — another great resource for understanding Medicare eligibility and coverage that can also address other aging-related concerns. Maricopa County also has a Medicare booklet with more information on specific plans available to its residents.

Arizonans can reach out to Medicare ombudsmen by contacting the Arizona Ombudsman Citizens’ Aide. These individuals help seniors and their families with questions about Medicare.

Understand Arizona laws and regulations for memory care facilities

Memory care communities in Arizona are both licensed and regulated by the state’s Department of Health Services (DHS) — and more specifically, by its Bureau of Residential Facilities Licensing. This is because Arizona’s memory care facilities are grouped under the “residential care institutions” umbrella.

The DHS’s Division of Licensing Services is also responsible for inspecting memory care facilities to make sure they align with Arizona’s regulations. Inspections generally happen once every two years. However, the Division of Licensing Services may increase this frequency if it receives complaints about a facility or believes that it’s not compliant.

When inspecting a memory care facility, DHS surveyors will consider factors such as:

  • Staffing ratios
  • Quality of care offered to residents
  • Medication management
  • Nutrition and meals
  • Residents’ physical environments

Additionally, inspectors can also opt to carry out interviews with staffers and facility residents, examine related records and documents, and gauge the quality of provided care.

If the DHS finds that a facility is deficient or noncompliant with state regulations, it’s required to take corrective action and address any issues. Failure to comply can result in additional enforcement actions or penalties. Licensing and inspection records for Arizona’s memory care communities can be found on this DHS page.

Additional requirements for memory care facilities

Arizona does have regulations that are specific to its memory care facilities that these communities must adhere to:

  • Staff-to-patient ratio: Although Arizona doesn’t have a minimum staff-to-resident ratio, sufficient staff must be present at all times to offer care to residents. Besides this, the state mandates that at least one manager or skilled caregiver should be awake and working at all times.
  • Staffing and training regulations: Caregivers at the state’s memory care communities aren’t required to have dementia training. However, administrators at these facilities do undergo this specialized training.

COVID-19 regulations for Scottsdale memory care facilities

Arizona’s memory care facilities do not have strict COVID-19 regulations they must follow. However, Arizona’s DHS does have official guidance for long-term care facilities on controlling the spread of COVID-19 and preventing outbreaks. Additionally, the city of Scottsdale has its own set of safety guidelines, and the DHS offers residents this guidance on COVID-19 best practices and keeps up to date with new information from the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.

What to expect from memory care living in Scottsdale

Given its world-class health care options, lovely scenery and weather, and laid-back lifestyle, it’s no wonder why Scottsdale is home to many senior care — and memory care — communities. With an abundance of options, you’re sure to find an offering well-suited for your senior. In this section, we’ll share a bit more about what you can expect from Scottsdale’s memory care facilities.

All the space your senior needs

Scottsdale’s memory care facilities have a few different floor plans you can choose from depending on your senior’s individual needs and preferences. While some facilities offer cost-effective semi-private rooms great for social butterflies, seniors might be able to stay in studio apartments or even opt for one- or two-bedroom arrangements if they’d like a little more space.[02]

An engaging array of activities and common areas for residents

Scottsdale’s memory care communities are home to a variety of amenities meant to engage seniors with memory loss conditions: think opportunities to socialize and exercise their cognitive skills to common areas where they can relax and recharge. Specific amenities and offerings vary depending on the facility a senior is in, but some examples are below:[02]

  • Activities directors: Most of our partner communities hire dedicated activities directors who plan and schedule opportunities for residents to have some fun. At memory care facilities, activities directors will often make a note of scheduling events tailored to seniors with memory loss that can help them maintain cognitive function.
  • Arts and crafts centers: For seniors who are more on the artsy side, dedicated arts and crafts centers will help them scratch that creative itch.
  • TV lounges: Seniors can catch up on their programs and socialize with other residents at dedicated TV lounges.
  • Enclosed courtyards and outdoor walking paths: Communities with memory care in mind will often have enclosed courtyards and secure walking paths. This allows residents to get some fresh air and sunlight while staying safe and on the premises.
  • Main Street-style shops: If your senior loves a bit of “retail therapy,” some memory care communities in the area offer a “Main Street” with shops they can browse.

Opportunities for care continuity

If you’re concerned about a senior’s care needs changing and increasing, you’ll be happy to know that the vast majority of the city’s memory care facilities that partner with A Place for Mom offer a combination of care types under one roof.

Two facilities are standalone memory care communities, but these are other options you might consider:[02]

  • Eight communities combine assisted living with memory care.
  • Nine communities offer assisted living, independent living, and memory care — a highly progressive care classification.
  • Three are combination adult daycares, group homes, and memory care facilities.
  • Fourteen facilities are both group homes and memory care facilities.

Transportation for seniors in Scottsdale

Many memory care facilities in the Scottsdale area provide transportation for seniors for medical appointments or supervised group outings. In fact, out of A Place for Mom’s 36 partner memory care communities in Scottsdale, 60% offer at-cost transportation services while 57% provide transportation to seniors as a complimentary perk.[02]

However, there are other transport options in the Scottsdale area that seniors and their families should know about. Please note that individuals with memory loss conditions should be accompanied by a caregiver when using the below services.

Valley Metro ADA Paratransit

The Valley Metro system serves the Phoenix metro area, including the city of Scottsdale. Besides operating a fleet of buses, a light rail system, streetcars, and vanpools, it offers accessible bus and rail services as well as door-to-door and curb-to-curb Paratransit service for qualifying individuals with disabilities. One-way rides are $4, and trips must be scheduled at least one day in advance.

Valley Metro RideChoice Program

Thanks to Valley Metro’s RideChoice, qualifying passengers can receive 20 eight-mile travel vouchers that renew monthly for ADA- and wheelchair-compliant vehicles. An eight-mile ride is $3, but participants must pay excess fees if their trip exceeds this distance.

Envoy

Envoy, which has a hub in Scottsdale, is a service that specializes in senior transport. It hires companions who undergo rigorous training on transporting seniors and providing the assistance necessary to safely transition individuals into and out of vehicles. The Dementia Society of America has also awarded Envoy a Dementia SMART Gold Award.

Senior activities in Scottsdale

Scottsdale, Arizona, is known for its picturesque views of the Sonoran Desert, luxury lifestyle offerings, and vibrant arts and culture scene, but it’s also home to plenty of calming activities seniors with memory care conditions and their caregivers can enjoy.

If your senior loved one has always enjoyed the great outdoors, why not bring them for a visit to Cactus Park? This local favorite features 17 acres of greenery where visitors can take in nature and relax, but it also features bench seating and three ramadas for picnics and outings, two of which are reservable. The park is open from sunrise until 10:30 p.m.

If viewing wildlife is more up their alley, however, Butterfly Wonderland is a stellar choice for seniors with memory care conditions. Besides being the largest butterfly conservatory in the country, it’s also a designated Pal Place — meaning it’s taken special steps to accommodate guests with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Visitors to Butterfly Wonderland can watch thousands of butterflies from up to 70 different species mingle, learn all about honeybees, check out the conservatory’s friendly reptiles and amphibians, and more.

As a premier cultural hub, Scottsdale is also home to plenty of museums. Consider taking your senior on a tour to Taliesin West, famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter residence as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site and National Historic Landmark. Although many visitors to Taliesin West opt for a guided tour, audio-only tours are also available. Guests with special needs or requests with questions about accommodations can contact Taliesin West’s tour department by phone at (480) 627-5375 or via email at dyeaw@franklloydwright.org.

Scottsdale’s Smithsonian-affiliated Western Spirit can provide more great learning moments. Self-guided audio tours are available at this museum, which covers Western history and Indigenous culture.

Looking for something a bit more social? Oakwood Creative Care’s Dementia Hub hosts a Memory Café in nearby Mesa, Arizona. This is a hybrid engagement opportunity for people living with dementia (and other memory care conditions) and support group for their dedicated caregivers. At each Memory Café event, attendees can enjoy a coffee and pastry and socialize with other participants before breaking off into either a caregiver support group or class for people with dementia. Memory Café is held on Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and is free for all.
