2. How much does it cost to live at Memory Haven in Sumner, WA?
The cost of living in a senior living facility can vary based on location, level of care, apartment type, and personal care options. Most senior living communities will charge a monthly base rate that covers your housing, meals, utilities, maintenance, housekeeping, transportation, and activities.
The monthly rate will be more expensive for higher levels of care to factor in the extra services that you will receive (e.g., memory care will have a higher monthly base rate than independent living).
Another cost to consider is your care plan. Memory Haven is able to assist with a wide range of personal care needs but you will only be charged for the services that you require. Our Executive Director and Wellness Director (Nurse) will be able to determine the monthly cost of your care plan after completing an assessment and learning more about your unique needs, specific requests, lifestyle, and routine.
For sample questions on the assessment, visit our Memory Haven FAQ page.
When doing your research on cost, we recommend you take a look at the expenses you are already paying for to determine precisely how much money is already going toward living costs and how that might compare to the monthly cost of your senior living community.
