Memory Care Price Ranges
Before a resident moves into a community, we work with them and their families to complete a personal service assessment. This assessment helps us design a care plan that meets that resident's personal needs. But because your costs hinges on your particular care needs, it's difficult to provide a final price until the personal service assessment is completed.
So while you may not have a final price, you can get an idea of other numbers based on the ranges shown below.
Starting Base Rental Rate - $2,795 to $10,030*
In addition to the base rental rate, you may be responsible for other fees, including a one-time fee that covers admission and apartment preparation, which can range from $385 to $6,100.

If you are a caregiver, consider the impact these demands have on your health and emotional well-being. Sometimes the best thing you can do for a loved one is consider alternative options that allow you to step out of the role of caregiver and back into the role of family member.
