Memory Care Cost

Any decision you make about assisted living for your aging family member is going to be important. The foremost concern, of course, is that your loved one receives the necessary medical attention, consistent, day-to-day care and ultimately, a quality of life that maximizes happiness and overall wellness. Still, most families have financial limitations and wondering about cost is only natural.

How Much Does it Cost?

The question of cost is usually the first thing a family asks. The cost of memory care by different providers can vary a great deal, depending on a number of factors. Some start with a base rate for residential services such as meals and housekeeping, and then add on fees for increasing levels of care. But rates at CountryHouse are all-inclusive for both residential and care services.

Agemark CostCountryHouse also offers three different bedroom choices: Companion, Private or Deluxe Private. Some locations also offer a Concierge choice. Each option offers a different price point, which varies by location.

Additional fees might be assessed at some locations, depending on the need for continence management or personal attendant services. A one-time community fee is also due prior to the move-in, and is not refundable past 30 days of residency.

What about increases?

Something to keep in mind when comparing the costs of different assisted living communities is that what you pay at the start may not be what you are going to pay a year, two years, or five years down the road. A CountryHouse Director or Advisor can give you a good idea of what kind of increases to expect.

How do you compare options?

We encourage families to compare different options before choosing the one that is best for your loved one. Beyond the price, be sure to visit to get a sense of the feel of each property – and the people you meet. Listen to your instincts; if there is a particular place that feels like home to you and your loved one, it is likely the best option. In addition, be sure to collect data on amenities, activities, and healthcare services to determine the best overall value.

Because of the different ways that providers price their services, keep in mind you may be comparing apples to oranges. And take into account that the cost of CountryHouse includes many advantages not offered anywhere else, such as our signature LifeCycles program for whole-person wellness, family support services, etc.

Are there financial assistance options?

Though most residents pay for assisted living with a combination of savings, fixed income, and home equity, there are other sources available to help defray some of the cost. Your options may include long-term care insurance benefits, programs that sell or convert life insurance policies, personal loans, the Veterans Aid and Attendance Program, and even tax deductions. One of our CountryHouse Directors can provide you with greater insight into these different solutions.

CountryHouse Stories

W e honor a person's life by telling his or her story. Alzheimer’s disease gradually robs people of the memories that remind them of who they are, where they’ve been, and what they’ve done. By gathering and preserving memories, we can bring important events and experiences from the past into the present. We can be the link to each one’s life history. Stories help affirm all the positive things a person has done in life and can still do. They remind us of who the individual was before Alzheimer’s disease.

Dear Becky, It has been almost two months since dad died (Erick Seifert), and I wanted to express our deep gratitude and appreciation to you and all of your outstanding staff at Astoria Gardens. As you recall, our family was quite involved with selecting a memory care unit for dad. We came armed with a long list of detailed questions when looking for the ideal placement. Having experience as an RN with hospice and home health care background, I knew what I wanted AND did not want when it c…

Dear Mr. Hug, Once again, your team at the Kensington has proven their devotion to your motto, “Treating People Like Family is the Heart of What We Do!” You were kind enough to visit my family in my mother’s room the day that we moved her in a year ago. This evening, with my brother, Mike, from Hastings out-of-town, I was faced with being “on call” with my mother Doris Kleppinger from where I live in Virginia. She has been facing some issues of not eating, difficulty swallowing, and breath…
