What Is Memory Care?
Memory care provides a safe and structured environment for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Memory care communities in the Boca Raton, FL area have staff members with specialized knowledge and training to help residents live with the challenges associated with memory loss.
Memory care communities typically provide more support than assisted living communities, and staff members evaluate each resident to determine which level of assistance each individual needs.
The atmosphere of these communities is comfortable and enriching, offering activities that focus on strengthening the mind and body. In addition, a memory care community provides services that include 24-hour health monitoring, 24-hour security and daily living assistance.
Our Memory Care Approach
At Sunscape Boca Raton, we honor individual preferences and legacies by customizing all memory care programming. We start with a wellness review of each resident’s abilities and a discussion about their passions. Then we create a personalized approach to support that creates moments that are meaningful to them every day.
Our Valeo Signature Programs at our Boca Raton memory care community are built on a foundation of holistic well-being and health, and backed by scientific research. Valeo’s wellness philosophy engages residents and encourages them to improve their well-being through four pillar focus areas, including physical, social, intellectual and spiritual dimensions.
The Floreo Club (Latin for “to flourish”) is designed specifically to minimize symptoms and delay the progression of memory loss. The programs, exercises and structure that the Floreo Club offers benefits those that want to stave off dementia and remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. And, like everything we do, Floreo reflects — and respects — the story of each person’s life.

Memory care involves 24/7, highly comprehensive care, which is why it’s usually more expensive than other types of senior care. In the U.S., the average cost of memory care hovers at $6,935 per month, but the final price will depend on your location, chosen floor plan and the community’s amenities.

Boca Raton Memory Care FAQs
What Are the Signs It's Time for Memory Care?
The signs that it’s time to transition to memory care are different for each family. Dementia is a cognitive impairment that is difficult to predict, with symptoms that don’t follow a set timeline.
Oftentimes, families seek memory care after a loved one has received a medical diagnosis of dementia, so that they can start the transition process early instead of when symptoms worsen. Another common sign is when families feel stressed and overwhelmed by caregiving. Caring for a person with dementia is more than a full-time job, and not all families are equipped to be on call around the clock.
Finally, you should get in touch with potential memory care communities if you notice a decline in your family member's mental and physical health, beyond normal age-related issues, or if you worry about their safety.
Does Medicare Cover Memory Care Facilities?
Unfortunately, Medicare doesn't usually cover memory care and assisted living community costs. Medicare will cover any medical treatments and therapies that the person receives while staying at a memory care community. However, the insurance coverage doesn’t extend to the actual costs of living in the memory care community.
Is It Better to Move to Memory Care or Age-In-Place?
Aging-in-place may be right for some families who have the time and resources to provide 24/7 specialized care. Yet, more often than not, living at home doesn’t provide the enriching environment that individuals with dementia require. It’s common for seniors who age in place to feel bored, isolated or unsupported at home.
In contrast, memory care communities offer daily opportunities to meet every resident’s physical, intellectual, social and spiritual dimensions. With highly trained staff, a secure campus and memory-enhancing activities, individuals with dementia can truly thrive.
