Colorado Springs Memory Care Q&A

The average stay in a memory care facility can vary widely per individual, but often, senior residents stay in memory care for three years or more.

There are not many differences between assisted living and memory care, as both assist with activities of daily living (ADLs). However, every aspect of memory care has been tailored to seniors with dementia, from activities to design of the community, etc.

It can be difficult to know when to put a mom or parent in memory care, but if a loved one is showing signs of lack of safety and wandering, it may be time to consider a move to a memory care setting.

There are many things to consider to find the best memory care facility for you or a loved one. You can start by researching the state of Colorado’s Health Facilities and Residences for Seniors website.

Memory care is often more expensive than assisted living, as it provides an additional level of care that is tailored for seniors with dementia. The Genworth Cost of Care Survey states that the average cost of memory care per month in Colorado Springs is around $5,340. Contact MacKenzie Place – Colorado Springs to get pricing info and learn details about our innovative memory care community.

It can be difficult to determine how often you should visit someone with dementia, as a loved one with dementia often experiences the passing of time differently than we do. That being said, Caregiver.org recommends visiting around three times per week within a short timeframe.
