What is Memory Care?
At Aegis Living, we have developed innovative care programs for residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia to best meet their unique needs. Our Life’s Neighborhood ® program is designed to help ease the symptoms of dementia and to celebrate the life of the individual. We provide personalized care to meet the resident wherever they are in the progression of their memory loss. Our secured memory care wing is modified to keep our residents safe, healthy, active, and comfortable to give our families peace of mind.
We don’t focus on what they forget, but rather, connecting them with the feelings of joy and happiness that they will never forget.

The Cost of Care
When shopping for a memory care community, know the numbers. Various long-term care companies may structure their pricing differently. For comparison, Aegis Living bases the cost of care on rent and care points.
Our monthly rent covers the cost of the private apartment plus amenities and basic services such as housekeeping, meals, transportation, and utilities.
Pay only for the customized care that your parent needs. A professional assessment will determine the number of care points needed to ensure your parent is comfortable and their memory care needs are met.
Covers costs incurred in bringing in a new resident and allows for the upkeep and maintenance of our communities.
