This presentation will explain the differences between Skilled Nursing Homes, Independent and Assisted Living Communities, Continuing Care Retirement Communities and Memory Care Communities. We will then focus specifically on Assisted Living and Memory Care and how these communities can differ in care and amenities. We will provide information regarding questions families should ask and things to look for in an Assisted Living or Memory Care Community. We will provide information on how and when to start a conversation with your family member about transitioning to an assisted living or memory care community. Lastly, we will discuss the cost of assisted living verses the cost of remaining in the home. As well as different ways to pay for care in the home and ways to help cover the cost of Memory Care or Assisted Living.
