The cost of memory care in Tucson, AZ.

Memory care is specialized care and environment provided to seniors with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia. Memory care nurses and aides receive training to help them understand their patients, and memory care communities (or memory care wings within other types of facilities) are designed to minimize confusion and wandering. Memory care community programming will include activities that might help slow cognitive decline as well as soothe residents who might be prone to agitation common to their conditions.

According to Genworth Financial’s 2021 Cost of Care Study, the average monthly cost of assisted living care in Tucson is $4,050, which is just a little lower than the national average of $4,500. Residential memory care programs tend to cost about 25% more than assisted living because they require a higher level of caregiver and management expertise, as well as the 24/7 security and caregiving teams required for adequate care for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

At 25% more than the average for assisted living, the average monthly cost of memory care in Tucson is $5,063. This is lower than the national average of $5,625. Costs can differ depending on the size of the facility, the facility’s monitoring systems, 24/7 protective supervision, as well as personal care, and recreational programs geared toward the needs of those living with memory loss.

If you’re not sure what kind of care your loved one needs, speak with their doctor. And keep in mind that senior living communities will perform their own evaluations, to ensure that potential residents will receive the care they need. Generally, assisted living communities can care for mild cognitive impairment, while memory care is reserved for residents who’ve been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Skilled nursing facilities can often accommodate memory care patients, and typically provide 24/7 nursing care like help with catheters, injections, and intravenous medication.
