Memory Care

Memory care services administer support to seniors who need specialized cognitive support. Caregivers need to obtain memory-care specific education and a staff member are required to be available for assistance around-the-clock. Structured activities are offered by staff members trained specifically on providing aid for those with memory impairments. Persons live in private rooms or shared apartments. Memory care provides 24-hour supervised care with meals, health management, and recreational activities for members. The monthly median cost for a private room is around $9,387 and the cost for a semi-private room is around $8,547 . The state of Florida maintains a number of stipulations related to this kind of community. The The Bureau of Health community Regulation governs this type of community.
