7 Questions to Ask Memory Care Facilities

Memory care is a unique form of long-term care specifically for people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, dementia, or other types of problems that impact their memory. If you are faced with the difficult decision of finding a facility for a loved one, the task might seem overwhelming with all the options available to you. Choosing the right facility that is best equipped for your loved one's needs means asking lots of questions, not just about cost, but about services and amenities that might be important to your loved one.

When starting your search for the right living facility, begin with these seven questions to narrow down your options and make the elimination process easier.

1. Who are the staff at the facility and what type of training have they received? The answer to this question will help you determine specific levels of expertise, patient to staff ratios, and if the facility has specific experience in working with the type of issue your loved one is experiencing.

2. What is the monthly rate for the facility? What does that include? This is an important question to ask, as many facilities have a different fee schedule dependent upon the level of care the resident needs. Especially with a degenerative issue, it will be important to know up front if you could incur more fees as your loved one needs more daily assistance.

3. Are there private or semi-private rooms available? What is the fee? Dependent on what your loved one values, privacy could be important to them. If so, be sure to ask about private room options.

4. What are the security procedures at the facility? Memory care facilities should be especially stringent with security, as it is very dangerous for residents to wander off or be able to leave the building unsupervised. Ask how they handle this to feel at ease that your loved one is safe.

5. Are meals provided? Are special requests able to be accommodated? For anyone with dietary restrictions, allergies, or special needs, this question is important.

6. Are residents placed with roommates or grouped based on a cognitive level? As there are many different types of memory issues that may be living together in one facility, it's important to know if your loved one will have an opportunity to interact with individuals with similar issues. Additionally, if they are assigned a roommate, it may be important to your loved one to be with someone in a similar mental state as they are.

7. How will you communicate with me about my loved one's care and overall well-being? While it's always wonderful to be able to visit your loved one frequently, it's even more important to know that their needs are being met and issues are being quickly relayed. If you are currently a caregiver or have the power of attorney for your loved one, it will be important that all issues are communicated to you quickly and accurately. It will also be important that you are able to check in with staff for updates if your loved one isn't able to use the phone.

Choosing the right memory care facility is a huge decision, and one not to be taken lightly. By asking these seven questions to help narrow down your search, you can start exploring your options to make the best decision for your loved one, allowing them to live a full happy life with the level of care they need.
