Frequently Asked Questions

What is memory care like in Middletown, NJ?

Memory care lifestyles, programs, and activities are specially designed for those with memory impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, or other forms of dementia. Memory care can either be offered on its own or, more often, provided as a service in a separate area of an assisted living facility. Arbor Terrace Middletown's memory care program is meant to provide support, encouragement, and relationships for each of our residents. And it’s all backed by Arbor’s 30+ years of experience in dementia care.

At what stage should someone with dementia go into memory care in Middletown, NJ?

It may be time to consider memory care if your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia and you’re seeing signs that they’re struggling with daily functioning, need support most of the time, or seem afraid and lonely living at home. Seniors with memory issues have an increased risk of wandering, physical risk-taking that can lead to falls, and other unsafe behaviors.

Memory care facilities and programs are specially designed for seniors with memory loss or other age-related cognitive impairments. They provide a calm and dignified environment that promotes independence and choice while reducing safety risks and distress. Here are six signs that it’s time for memory care.

What is the difference between memory care and assisted living?

Both memory care and assisted living offer supportive care to people with a range of health issues, including cognitive impairments. Memory care, however, caters specifically to those with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia through dementia-friendly activities and staff trained in the psychological and physical effects of cognitive impairments. To understand the key differences, you may find this post from The Arbor Company blog helpful.

What is the difference between memory care and skilled nursing in Middletown, NJ?

Though nursing homes and memory care facilities both offer dementia and Alzheimer’s care, there are a few differences between these types of care. Both offer round-the-clock staff and supervision to keep residents safe, while memory care communities offer a more flexible option. Memory care has specialized staff members who are trained in issues with dementia care, and they provide prepared meals to preserve dignity and independence, safe and secure environmental features, and a structured day of activities that help to prevent behaviors associated with anxiety and depression. 

However, a nursing home or a skilled nursing facility offers more comprehensive support. This option is for those who require more hands-on assistance and monitoring, especially if they have extensive medical needs and need to be in a more clinical environment. Nursing homes provide the highest level of care possible outside of a hospital, with 24-hour care to seniors who have complex medical conditions. This may be the best choice for those needing assistance with tasks beyond the activities of daily living.

What is a memory care specialist?

A memory care specialist is someone who is certified to implement personalized care plans for residents. They provide assistance for everyday care, including personal care and medical needs. They can handle the complexities of memory care with a specialized approach to provide the best care for your loved one.

What does memory care cost in Middletown, NJ?

Memory care costs are generally 20-30% higher than assisted living costs. The average monthly rate for a memory care facility in New Jersey is $7,230, but pricing can vary widely depending on the location and level of dementia care that is needed.

Will Medicare cover memory care in New Jersey?

In most cases, only the medical costs of an assisted living community are deductible. Living costs like room and board are not, but there are exceptions if the resident is in the assisted living facility primarily for medical care. In this case, part or all of the assisted living costs may qualify for the medical expense tax deduction. We recommend consulting a tax advisor with questions regarding your specific circumstances.
