Westminster Shores in Saint Petersburg, FL

I began exploring retirement communities 2 years ago. I discovered Westminster Shores in September 2021. [Name removed] in sales guided me through the process, all online. I never felt the need to fly to FL from [location removed] to check things out. She sent me a video of my present home, a lovely villa in Westminster Shores. The move from [location removed] to FL was a challenge but I arrived here safely. Everyone, staff and residents have been so kind and friendly. The menus are incredibly delicious. I've made a friend who was introduced to me by [name removed]. She lives right next door and we do everything together. This was the best decision of my life and I have a brother in [location removed] who was very impressed by my photos and he may follow me here soon.

Step 2: Identify the best memory care options in Ruskin, Florida for your needs

To help you narrow down your options and choose the best memory care facility near you, some factors to consider include:

  • Memory care ratings and reviews. Our community reviews are submitted by people who have direct experience with the community. As you find memory care communities that interest you, read through the reviews: Do people have positive things to say about the community and their loved one’s experience there?
  • State licensing and regulations. Memory care communities are regulated by the state. Many states make information about community licensing, inspections, and violations available to the public. Is the community accredited? How long has it held this designation? Has the facility passed an inspection recently?
  • Specialized design. Does the community have wayfinding features, like signage and clearly marked doorways? If your loved one likes the outdoors, does the community have a healing garden or secure outdoor space?
  • Staff trained in dementia care. What specialized training do employees have? What’s the staff-to-resident ratio? Is the community staffed 24/7?
  • Memory care facility features and amenities. Does the community fit your loved one’s interests? For example, if they’re religious, is there an on-site chapel? If they value pampering and self-care, is there a beauty salon or barbershop?
  • Memory care activities. While cognitive therapies – like pet therapy and music therapy – can’t cure dementia, they can help stave off its progression and keep seniors alert and entertained. Consider asking communities if you can view a memory care activities calendar to see if there are singalongs, game nights, and supervised outings to keep your loved one socially involved.

Step 3: Compare the costs of memory care near Ruskin, Florida

How much does memory care cost in Ruskin, Florida? The answer varies based on location, floorplan options, amenities, and the level of care your loved one needs. Memory care facility costs in your area typically range between 3,260 to 3,545, with an average monthly cost for memory care of 4,261.

Families who need less expensive care and are flexible as far as location is concerned may consider nearby Pinellas Park, FL, where the average cost of a memory care facility is 2,948.
