There aren’t any specific rules or guidelines to determine when someone is ready for memory care; that decision lies with the family and/or caregivers.
Because dementia is progressive, symptoms will worsen with time, and professional intervention will be needed.
Some signs to look for include:
Safety: Your loved one may be unsafe in their home, leaving the stove or oven on, wandering outside and becoming lost, or tripping and falling.
Hygiene: Your loved one may forget to bathe, shave, wash their hair, or brush their teeth.
Appearance: Your loved one may not be able to properly dress themselves, wearing clothing that’s inappropriate for the time of year or appearing disheveled.
Home: Your loved one’s home may be cluttered, messy or dirty as household chores become too demanding or overlooked. They may have dishes piled in the sink; old food in the refrigerator; or bills piling up, unpaid.
Behavior: Your loved one’s behavior or personality changes, becoming aggressive or abusive.
Stress: All the above can take a toll on you as a caregiver. You may suffer from mental, physical or emotional exhaustion. If you are neglecting your own well-being, it’s time to seek professional help for your loved one.
Depending upon your financial situation, the cost of a memory care community, as well as other long-term care expenses, may be tax deductible.
According to the Health Insurance Portabiity and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), qualified personal care services that provide assistance with activities of daily living are tax deductible.
Because memory care falls into the category of Long-Term Care services, your loved one’s care may qualify for a tax deduction for memory care facility costs.
