A memory care facility employs staff members who have received annually trained in assisting persons with cognitive impairments, Alzhemier's, and an inability to make basic care decisions. Dementia living homes maintain supervised areas to limit wandering which is a common symptom of Alzheimer's. This type of facility offers 24-hour monitored care with recreational activities, health management, and meals for residents. Typically, residents in memory care require support with personal care , dressing, and bathing. The annual median cost for a private room is around $82,125 and the cost for a semi-private room is around $71,175 . The state of Illinois maintains specific standards associated with this kind of facility. The The Illinois Department of Public Health regulates this facility type.
