Costs of memory care in the Indianapolis area

The average cost of our in-network Indianapolis memory care facilities is $4,400 per month, according to A Place for Mom’s 2022 proprietary data.[01] Memory care facilities typically cost more than assisted living or independent living facilities. This is because they offer more extensive, specialized services that are included in their baseline starting costs, such as the following:

  • Round-the-clock care and supervision
  • Specialized memory care therapies and activities
  • Enhanced security measures
  • Specialized staff trained in memory care techniques

Most communities wrap many services up with a community’s baseline monthly rent. The general services included in the baseline monthly rent at a memory care facility typically include the following:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Daily meals and snacks
  • Housekeeping

How people pay for memory care in Indianapolis

Memory care costs can be overwhelming, and families and caregivers are often faced with the question of how they can pay for it. The costs of long-term memory care can add up over time, and families often rely on a medley of public benefits and private funding options. For some, private payment methods may be enough to cover long-term memory care costs. Combining all public benefit options with private assets can help your family pay for the most ideal memory care community.

In this section, we highlight the various private payment methods that families might have to pay their memory care costs. We also outline several public benefit options, from veterans benefits to Medicaid and Medicare health insurance programs.

Private pay methods

Families often first weigh what personal assets they have on hand to pay for memory care before exploring what public benefit options are available. Oftentimes, private payment methods come from savings accounts, Social Security benefits, and pensions. Additionally, some people may be able to utilize investment returns from stocks or bonds. Explore some more asset options below.

Number of veterans who live in Indianapolis

About 25% of Indianapolis veterans are age 75+

Many veteran families turn to veterans benefits like the Aid and Attendance benefit to help pay for memory care and other long-term care expenses. Aid and Attendance is among the most generous VA benefits available. It’s distributed via monthly payments and can be used to pay for anything that improves a veteran’s quality of life. Benefits like this are available through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and can bring tremendous financial relief to veterans and their families.

The VA benefits system can be puzzling at times, and many find it hard not to get lost in a sea of various eligibility requirements and processes. Working with a local VA-accredited veterans service organization (VSO) is the best way to make sure you or a loved one doesn’t miss out on benefits. There are several VSOs located within the Indianapolis VA Regional Office, including the American Legion’s headquarters, the Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) chapter, and the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) chapter, as well as the following groups:

  • American Veterans (AMVETS)
  • Vietnam Veterans of America
  • Paralyzed Veterans of America
  • Military Order of the Purple Heart

Medicaid

Indiana’s Medicaid program doesn’t pay for private memory care facilities, since most of these communities are considered residential settings, unlike a nursing home. However, Indiana Medicaid can pay for some memory care services in a residential setting if the patient qualifies for Medicaid waiver programs, like the Aged and Disabled (A&D) waiver. Find out more about this specific waiver program, who is eligible, and what it can cover below.

Aged and Disabled (A&D) waiver

Indiana Medicaid’s Aged and Disabled (A&D) waiver helps eligible Hoosiers in need of a nursing facility level of care live safely in a less institutional setting — like a Medicaid-approved memory care facility. The A&D waiver covers an extensive amount of services that can be tailored to a person’s specific needs. It’s designed to help seniors continue living in their chosen place of residence and avoid nursing home placement by providing in-home health care services. Some of the services covered with this waiver include the following:[03]

  • Caregiver services
  • Medical supplies
  • Adult day services
  • Case management
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Health care coordination
  • Community transition services
  • Specialized medical equipment

Seniors need to meet Indiana Medicaid’s financial and eligibility guidelines to qualify for the A&D waiver. Applicants must meet the following requirements:[03]

  • They’re an Indiana resident.
  • They’re age 65+, blind, or disabled.
  • They require a nursing home level of care.
  • They prefer to live in a community instead of a nursing home.

Applying for Indiana Medicaid

The first step to qualifying for the Aged and Disabled waiver is applying for Indiana Medicaid. Seniors can apply online or in person at the closest Division of Family Resources (DFR) office. If any questions come up during the application process, seniors can contact their local certified health care navigators with any questions.

Once the Medicaid application process is complete, you can reach out to your nearest area agency on aging (AAA) to request an assessment to enroll in the Aged and Disabled waiver program.

Medicare

Medicare — the federal health insurance program for seniors age 65+ and people with disabilities — is designed to help pay for medical and health-related expenses, specifically. Any costs that are considered custodial care aren’t covered by Medicare.

In a memory care facility, custodial care costs can include room and board expenses and any personal care support. There are, however, some memory care-specific costs that may be covered for seniors age 65+ who have Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. Some of those costs include the following:[04]

  • Medications to help delay dementia progression
  • Care planning to help patients find supportive services and treatments
  • Cognitive assessments to flag symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia

There are some short-term health care costs and preventative services that are also considered Medicare-approved expenses, such as the following:[05]

  • Durable medical equipment
  • Inpatient hospital stays
  • Skilled nursing care
  • Hospice care
  • Vaccines
Help with navigating Medicare

So, how can you be sure what memory care is or isn’t covered by Medicare? Well, Indiana has a wealth of supportive services available to provide free, unbiased Medicare counseling for senior Hoosiers.

You can reach out to CICOA Aging and In-Home Solutions — Marion County’s area agency on aging (AAA) — and the Indiana State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) to chat with their certified counselors and get help with your Medicare questions.

Understand Indiana laws and regulations for memory care facilities

In Indiana, assisted living or memory care facilities that provide medication administration or nursing care are required to be licensed as residential care facilities by the Indiana Department of Health Division of Long-Term Care. These facilities are regularly inspected to make sure the state’s rules are being complied with. The health department also investigates any complaints made against facilities. You can find the department’s consumer reports on their findings on their website.

If they don’t provide medication administration or nursing services, assisted living facilities that provide services like help with activities of daily living, room and board, and meals aren’t required to be licensed. These facilities are instead required to register with the Indiana Department of Family and Social Services Administration by filing a service disclosure form.

Facilities that provide memory care must submit an Alzheimer’s and Dementia Special Care Unit form that addresses the following:[06]

  • Staffing patterns and care staff-to-patient ratios for each shift
  • Any therapeutic methods and programs provided
  • Types and amount of training required or provided to staff
  • A facility’s criteria and processes for admissions, transfers, and discharges
  • The facility’s mission and philosophy to care for residents with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia

Evaluations

Before admission, all residents are evaluated with a care needs assessment. This is to make sure a facility offers services that are appropriate for each resident. These assessments are typically updated semiannually as needed, documented in writing, and kept at the facility. At a minimum, these care need evaluations help a facility determine a resident’s needs by assessing the following:[06]

  • Ability to perform activities of daily living independently
  • Physical, cognitive, and mental status
  • Ability to self-administer medication

Admissions

Indiana has state regulations that set the bar for who can and can’t be accepted into a memory care facility. Memory care facilities won’t admit a person if their needs can’t be met at the facility. This typically includes individuals in the following conditions:[06]

  • Aren’t medically stable
  • Are a danger to themselves or others
  • Require round-the-clock nursing care
  • Need total assistance with eating, toileting, or transferring
  • Require rehabilitative therapies but don’t have a licensed provider

Medication assistance versus medication administration

Staff at memory care facilities can’t provide medication administration if it’s not a licensed residential care facility. If requested, staff can instead help residents with self-administration by providing medication assistance. Here are some examples of medication assistance:

  • Opening containers
  • Giving medication reminders or cues
  • Helping with eye drop application

Memory care facilities that are licensed as residential care facilities can provide medication administration as long as it’s provided by licensed nursing staff and medication aides. Rather than just assisting residents with their medications, medication administration puts licensed professionals in charge of preparing medications and distributing them as prescribed by a physician. The following are some examples of medication administration:

  • Measuring and recording dosages
  • Administering injections
  • Tracking side effects

Staff training

Memory care facilities that submit a special care unit disclosure are required to designate a director for their Alzheimer’s and dementia care unit. The director has to meet education or license requirements set at the state level, as well as the following training requirements:[06]

  • At least 12 hours of dementia care training within three months of taking the position
  • An annual 6 hours of training on current care practices and regulatory standards for residents in Alzheimer’s and dementia special care unit

Additionally, all staff of the facility are required to undergo an orientation. This orientation should review a facility’s policies and procedures for topics such as emergency procedures, residents’ rights, and evacuation procedures. All staff are also required to complete annual in-service training and education. Even staff without direct contact with residents are required to complete an annual 6 hours of dementia-specific training within six months of employment and 3 hours of annual training on current standards of dementia care.

Food and nutritional services

Memory care facilities have to provide three nutritionally balanced daily meals every day that are approved by a dietician. All facilities are required to comply with local sanitation and food handling standards. Meals provided must also consider the following:[06]

  • Religious, ethnic, and personal dietary preferences
  • Residents’ daily dietary requirements and requests
  • Any temporary need to deliver meals to a resident’s room

Activities programs

All licensed residential care facilities with memory care have to provide appropriate activity programs, as well as coordinated transportation to community-based activities. All memory care facilities must have an activities director who meets at least one of the following criteria:[06]

  • They’re a recreation therapist.
  • They’re an occupational therapist or certified occupational therapy assistant.
  • They’ve completed an activities director course or will complete it within a year.

COVID-19 regulations for Indianapolis memory care facilities

Memory care facilities in Indianapolis generally follow COVID-19 guidance set at the state and local levels. As of April 2023, there aren’t any COVID-19 mandates in place for memory care facilities. Some facilities may have stricter policies in place, so it’s always best practice to check with a facility directly on their current COVID-19 policies.

You can find Indiana’s COVID-19 updates published on the state’s COVID-19 response website. We’ve highlighted a few of the Indiana Department of Health’s recommendations for long-term care facilities below.

Vaccinations. Anyone eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination or booster should get one.
