Canton, Massachusetts

Memory Care

Memory care communities provide care in accordance with a dementia specific living program. Caregivers are required to obtain dementia-specific education and a staff member need to be available for aid around-the-clock. Basic services offered in memory care may include: social programs and activities, 24-hour staffing and personal assistance, medication management, and daily meals. Seniors have the option to reside in single rooms or shared apartments. Typically, residents in memory care need assistance with dressing, bathing, and grooming. The annual median cost for a private room is around $158,545 and the cost for a semi-private room is around $149,672 . The state of Massachusetts has specific rules related to this type of community. The The Executive Office of Elder Affairs certifies this type of community.

Cost of Living

The community where a senior care community is based might have a major effect on community price. The overall cost of living is a motivating factor when choosing which community is the best fit for your loved one. The rent burden for Canton is about 21.6% of the average monthly income.
