Frequently Asked Questions


The higher level of care and supervision in an Alzheimer’s residential care home comes at a price. On average, Personal Care costs $4,000 a month, and Personal Care with Memory Care adds another $1,000 to $4,000 a month. Costs vary state to state and are impacted by the level of care provided.

Our monthly rates start at $4,130 and are all-inclusive.

How can I decide between Personal Care and Memory Care?

Personal Care and Memory Care senior living communities provide many of the same services, including housing; meals; and help with bathing, grooming and toileting. However, Memory Care communities or neighborhoods that specialize in caring for seniors with all stages of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of memory loss feature services and amenities that prioritize the quality of life for a person with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

In top-tier Memory Care communities, environmental security is a key design feature. To prevent wandering, many communities are equipped with locked entrances and exits, as well as keypad entries, obscured exits, and doorbells signaling entering and exiting. To avoid injuries from falls, dementia care communities feature designs that minimize confusion. In addition, they offer calming therapies in soothing spaces. This can help reduce agitation and confusion that can lead to aggression or self-injury.

The staff members in dementia care communities are also specially trained in care planning for those living with memory loss. The staff understands how to effectively prevent and manage difficult dementia behaviors. They also understand the balance of encouraging residents to stay as independent as possible while providing the support they need. Many communities, including Charter, have a higher staff-to-resident ratio than Personal Care, which allows for more one-on-one attention throughout the day.

Does Medicare cover Memory Care?

The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2021 estimates the Owensboro area regional median monthly rate for Assisted Living is $3,088, which breaks down to around $102 per day, and may not include some support services that your loved one needs. The same survey says a private room in a nursing home will cost around $298 per day ($9,049 per month). Home health aide services average $125 per day.

Calumet Trace’s Personal Care services start at $3,300 with additional levels of care based on what your loved one needs to successfully navigate activities of daily living.

Is Memory Care right for my loved one?

When considering moving your loved one to a senior living community that specializes in dementia care and Alzheimer’s disease, there is much to consider.

  • Are they in the early stage of the disease, or do they need the long-term care provided in nursing homes?
  • Will they have the support they need?
  • Will they be safe, happy and content?
