Senior Memory Care Facility - Eugene, Oregon

Senior Memory Care Facilities include a secure environment, trained staff, and special programs designed for the particular needs of those with Alzheimer's and other memory-related disorders.  Senior Memory Care Facilities offer private or semi-private rooms and shared bathrooms with cleaning services and laundry. Senior Memory Care Facilities offer an RN on site and 24/7 caregivers who provide personal care (ADL), medication administration, daily meals, and social activities.

Senior Memory Care Facilities typically provide:

  • Locked facility
  • Smaller facility with 12-15 residents (may have a few houses, each with 12-15 residents)
  • 24/7 caregiver through three shifts, including night time
  • Medication administration
  • Private or semi private room, shared bathroom
  • Three meals per day
  • Housekeeping provided
  • Social activities offered
  • Nurse on site during the day, and on call 24/7
  • Price is based on level of care and room (private or semi private)
  • Some take only private pay and some take Medicaid as well. However, since they take only a limited number of Medicaid residents, in a good facility, there is always a waiting list.
  • Caregiver/residents ratio 1: 8-15
