Recent reviews of Memory Care in Tavares, FL
Brookdale Tavares
4.6

The staff members and care services they provided are excellent. What really stood out to us was the smallness of the community. It has a very homey feeling to it, very compacted. It does not feel like a large institutional community.

The Cove at Tavares Village
5.0

Since I am in a villa, Care Services is not applicable to me. People are very friendly and welcoming. I have joined the Dominoes group! I have also participated in a pot luck and women's luncheon. I chose a villa that is "new construction". It is well designed with a large kitchen, pantry, two bedrooms, bath and a half, and garage! I cook my own meals!

They provide all the services we need. The activities seem good, even though my loved one doesn’t participate. I’m pretty satisfied. There is enough parking, so that I’ve never had any trouble finding a place to park. The food has always looked good when I’ve seen it.

Step 2: Identify the best memory care options in Tavares, 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 Tavares, Florida

How much does memory care cost in Tavares, 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 3,084 to 4,934, with an average monthly cost for memory care of 4,266.

Families who need less expensive care and are flexible as far as location is concerned may consider nearby Eustis, FL, where the average cost of a memory care facility is 3,538.
