What Makes a Memory Care Facility Different Than a Nursing Home?
It's important to understand the difference between traditional nursing home care and memory care. Specifically, memory care is intended for seniors who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. With memory care, daily programs will be implemented to preserve your loved one's memory capabilities to the extent possible. In addition to this specialized level of care, traditional nursing home services may also be offered, such as assistance with medications, meal delivery, housekeeping, and the like.
Many family members of those with Alzheimer's and related forms of dementia worry that they simply won't be able to afford the memory care their loved one needs. However, at Prelude Homes & Services, we're always looking for ways to make our services as affordable as possible. Prelude Homes & Services is a private pay facility. We are an approved provider for many long-term care insurance companies as well as for VA benefits. We also offer a real-estate asset use program. There may be other financial options for memory care as well, such as life insurance.
You may also be pleased to learn that, in many cases, expenses related to memory care are tax deductible. This applies to both payments made out-of-pocket and those not reimbursed by health insurance, provided that the expense doesn't exceed a percentage of the payee's adjusted gross income.
