What does a memory care facility in Charleston cost versus an in-home care provider?
It’s very challenging to compare in-home care to a memory care facility for several reasons. When calculating the cost of in-home care, it’s important to include:
• Mortgage or rent payments
• Lost wages for caregivers providing assistance
• Groceries and other dining costs (keeping in mind that you may be able to benefit from one meal a day from meals on wheels)
• In-house doctor’s visits (for those who choose this option)
• The cost of utilities
• Entertainment and therapies
When you choose a memory care community instead, all of these components are included in one monthly rate, so no calculations are necessary. You know what to expect (and peace of mind is priceless).
