Fredericksburg Memory Care FAQs
What is a memory care facility?
A memory care community provides specialized care for people living with memory and cognitive impairments, such as Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
There are standalone memory care communities, and there are ones integrated into other senior care services. Often, assisted living and memory care neighborhoods are housed under one roof, even if they’re positioned separately.
An important note is that the use of the term “facility” has been deemed outdated among senior living professionals and care providers . It’s much more applicable and fitting to call this senior living option a community, due to the home-like environment with full wellness support that memory care services provide.
What are the most common memory care services?
These are common services that memory care communities provide to residents:
- Medication management
- In-depth assistance with ADLs and IADLs
- 24-hour monitoring and team member support
- Skilled nursing and medical care
- Enriching wellness programs
- Personalized care plans
- Emergency call buttons
- Transportation services
- Three daily meals plus snacks
- Housekeeping and laundry
Some memory care communities may include outdoor secure courtyards, supervised outings, special events and salon/barbershop services.
Does Medicare cover memory care facilities?
Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover room and board or custodial/personal care in a memory care community. Medicare Part A cannot apply to memory care communities, but Medicare Part B does cover qualified medical care while living in a memory care community. This medical care includes the costs for doctor visits, laboratory tests, medically necessary services and some medications administered by nursing professionals.
State-run Medicaid does provide coverage based on a percentage of room and board and custodial/personal care. Each state has specific guidelines for who qualifies and how much financial assistance they can receive. Some programs have caps on enrollment, which may result in waiting lists. Learn more at the Medicaid website.
VIRTUAL DEMENTIA TOURS
Putting yourself in the shoes of someone living with Alzheimer’s, or other forms of dementia, is a great way to help you understand and communicate effectively with your family member or friend.
We understand that it is difficult to care for someone living with dementia without having walked in their shoes. The Virtual Dementia Tour lets caregivers personally experience the tough day-to-day challenges those with dementia face. The empathy and patience you will feel for people with dementia following this sensory simulation experience is immediate.
As part of the Valeo™ memory care programming, our team is certified to introduce caregivers to the Virtual Dementia Tour. To learn about when the next Virtual Dementia Tour will be offered here or to hear more about how residents here are thriving, call 830-856-2450 today.
