ComfortCare Homes of Wichita offers a short-term Alzheimer’s care option at our Homes when rooms are available. It’s a temporary solution for families who want a real home environment for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s or stroke. These Residents typically require more care than what can be provided in their own home, but the families don’t want them to go to a traditional nursing home.
Reasons to Consider Short-Term Memory Care:
When Residents are in short-term Alzheimer’s care, family members are relieved of the stress of providing hourly care and can instead focus on their relationship and making the most of their time together.
A standard daily rate is required. Short-term memory care may not covered under MediCARE or typically any medical insurance plans. Therefore, it’s usually a private pay service, unless long-term care insurance plans pay benefits towards this type of care.
Other services such as Hospice and Home Health are usually covered under MediCARE. Check with service provider to confirm benefits.
