What is the difference between memory care and assisted living?

Memory care and assisted living communities are very different because they cater to different senior living needs. An assisted living community is for seniors who are in retirement and simply need some help with daily activities. They may need help with transportation, some hygienic habits, or housekeeping services.

On the other hand, memory care communities are designed for seniors with declined cognitive health. They may have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, which has made it difficult for them to care for themselves. Memory care communities provide 24/7 care and supervision with additional safety features, cognitive activities, and the necessary amenities.

What is the difference between memory care and skilled nursing in Gambrills, MD?

If your loved one has Alzheimer’s or dementia, you may be wondering if they need to move to a memory care community or a nursing home in Gambrills, MD. Although these options are similar, there are some differences that can impact your decision.

A nursing home provides a more clinical atmosphere where seniors receive around-the-clock care and supervision. They often have to share rooms and don’t have much privacy or independence.

A memory care community provides a warmer atmosphere where seniors have more privacy and can often live in their own apartments. They are able to maintain more independence while still getting 24/7 care from qualified caregivers and medical professionals. Memory care communities also provide more activities and events that encourage socialization and enrichment.

What is a memory care specialist?

If your loved one has Alzheimer’s or dementia, you want to make sure they receive the best possible care. At Arbor Terrace Waugh Chapel, our caregivers and medical professionals are trained specifically in cognitive conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia. We provide memory care specialists who help residents with everyday activities, whether that be personal care or cognitive past times.

Memory care specialists understand how cognitive conditions impact seniors and can help them adjust to these changes.

What does memory care cost in Gambrills, MD?

Memory care can range in costs based on the residents’ care needs. To learn more about paying for memory care in Gambrills, MD, schedule a time to talk with one of our trusted senior living advisors, or use our cost calculator to see if memory care is a financial fit for your loved one.

Will Medicare cover memory care in Maryland?

If you are budgeting for memory care for your loved one, you may be wondering if Medicare can help you cover memory care expenses. The reality is that this is not an option Medicare provides since it does not offer coverage for long-term residential care.

The good news is that Arbor Terrace Waugh Chapel does accept other types of programs, such as veterans benefits. Contact us today to find out what other types of programs we accept that can help cover expenses.
