Memory Care Cost

When deciding on a memory care community for your loved one, research on care philosophy is so important. 

Different communities will structure care and cost differently for residents living with memory loss.
We know that you want to provide the best possible home for your loved one, and so does our team at the Birches. 
  • We are a certified Montessori credentialed community, and the Birches are proud to be a part of this elite group.
  • We support our residents by applying the Montessori Principles throughout our day, focusing on choice, abilities, interests, and resident-driven decisions.
  • From our 24/7 care for residents to our thoughtfully structured programming from 9:30 am to 9:30 pm each day, we help our residents thrive. 
  • We have implemented the Vigil Memory Care System for our memory care residents. This state-of-the-art system uses passive sensors and sophisticated software to ensure resident safety while respecting privacy and dignity.​
  • The Vigil Memory Care System tracks resident activity in the room with strategically placed sensors and intelligent software detect when a resident’s behavior is unsafe and alerts the appropriate care staff. 

As you decide on a Memory Care community for your loved one, you will have many factors to consider.

In addition to the environment and culture, you’ll also need to consider costs and what care is being delivered. 

We tailor our services for every resident, being flexible in our approach to providing care and cost.

Prior to residency, a member of the Birches team will meet the applicant to evaluate whether he or she meets the residency requirements.

The Birches also requires, from all residents prior to move-in, a written assessment, on its forms, from a licensed physician. 

We develop unique wellness plans for each resident that falls into one of the two tiers listed below. Each level is based on a resident's individual needs for care and assistance from our team members. 

We work closely with the resident, family members, and the resident's physician to determine which level of care is best. 

Of course, we hope that you become part of our family here at the Birches. But we know you need to find the right fit for your taste and your needs. 

Feel free to call and ask us questions—lots of questions. There will be no pressure to sign a contract or collect personal information. 

We think of this initial conversation as the first step in helping you find the perfect memory care community, wherever it may be. We are here for you.
