Assisted living is designed for seniors who are still relatively independent but need some extra support with daily tasks such as medication management, bathing and dressing.

Memory support is personalized care specifically geared toward seniors who have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Memory support communities like Villagio of McKinney have a safe and secure environment supported by an expert staff. The goal of memory care is to help seniors connect their meaningful pasts to the present moment. The activities and amenities of memory support can help your loved one improve and manage their cognitive health and wellness.

How much does memory support cost?

The cost of memory support depends on several factors. To get a better understanding of the cost of memory care, you’ll want to know any unique treatment or care your loved one might need. From there, cost can change based on the floor plan you choose. The good news is that when you contact Villagio of McKinney, we can help you learn more about your loved one and give you an estimate of what memory support would cost and discuss our all-inclusive rates.

What is the average stay at a memory care facility?

When you’re looking for memory support for your loved one, it’s natural to think about the length of their stay at the community. Memory support is usually a long-term care option and the average length of stay at a memory care facility is around three years which can vary based on the progression and type of memory loss the resident is experiencing.
