What is Memory Care?

Memory care in Austin (dementia care) is a type of long-term care specifically designed for seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other cognitive impairments. Memory care facilities are staffed with trained professionals who can provide around-the-clock assistance and support.

How do you pay for memory care in Austin, Texas?

The average cost of memory care in Texas is $4,688 per month. That figure is slightly lower than the national average of $5,064 per month. Memory care communities in big cities are typically more expensive than rural locations.

According to data from SeniorAdvice.com, the average cost of a memory care facility in Austin is $6,744. Prices at Ledgestone Senior Living start well below that price. Read more about the cost of senior living in our helpful guide.

There are a few different ways to pay for memory care in Texas. One option is private pay or paying for care out of pocket. Another option is to use long-term care insurance. Some policies will cover memory care, but it’s important to check the policy from individual insurers.

Medicaid and Medicare may provide some coverage for memory care in Texas, but eligibility requirements vary by policy. This type of insurance can cover medical services, but monthly rent is not.

Often older adults and their family members get creative when paying for senior care. Alternatives to paying out of pocket include:

  • VA benefits
  • Reverse mortgage
  • Bridge loans
  • Home Equity Line of Credit
  • Life insurance policies

Where is the best place for someone with dementia?

Home care and assisted living may not offer a high enough level of care for someone with dementia. Specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care work to ensure the best quality of life through a number of support services.

Memory care programs, like The Cottage, provide:

  • Higher staff-per-resident ratios
  • Wandering prevention
  • Social activities and events
  • Home-like atmosphere
  • Life skills stations
  • Chef-prepared brain-healthy meals

The Cottage offers dedicated Austin dementia care near Dripping Springs from experienced experts who understand not only the physical needs of the patient but also their overall well-being. Memory care specialists plan activities with sensory experiences in mind so patients can interact positively with their environment while stimulating critical thinking skills.

Our memory care program provides an ideal home for someone with dementia. Home care services provided by professional home health aides can help with daily tasks such as hygiene, meals, and housekeeping. However, the services in our community are available round-the-clock.

Family caregivers and home health aides may not be able to provide constant supervision, socialization, and health care found in a memory care community. Round-the-clock home nursing can cost nearly $20,000 per month in Austin.

Independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities like Ledgestone exist to elevate the lives of seniors and their families. Our community provides a lot of value and peace of mind.
