According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 6 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s. By 2050, this number is projected to rise to nearly 13 million.
When your loved one develops memory loss, it can be challenging for your whole family. It’s difficult to provide the specialized care they need to keep them safe. Not to mention navigating your fears and worries.
Copeland Oaks helps families address the memory care needs of their loved ones with a team of people who can provide expert care in an environment that has added safety features and supportive staff available around the clock.
Let’s explore the options available at Copeland Oaks to help you understand more about this challenging topic.
Types of Memory Care
When your loved one receives an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis, they’re at the beginning of a long journey. While there are treatments to slow the progression of these diseases, your loved one will increasingly require more care over time.
That’s why Copeland Oaks offers you two options: Assisted Living with Memory Care and our more advanced Memory Care Facility. Both options are tailored to meet the needs of those with Alzheimer’s or dementia at various phases.
Assisted Living Memory Care
Assisted Living with Memory Care is for people in the early stages of memory loss. We combine the help-as-needed care of assisted living with the special needs of early-stage memory care.
The goal is to provide a secure environment that gives residents freedom with supervision from Certified Dementia Care Practitioners (CDPs). We work to help slow the progression of Alzheimer’s or dementia in a safe, supportive, and comfortable environment while maintaining our residents’ sense of independence and purpose.
Advanced Memory Care at Memory Lane
For those experiencing advanced Alzheimer’s or dementia, Copeland Oaks offers full-time long-term care at our Crandall Medical Center. Memory Lane in Crandall Medical Center gives residents the attentive and expert care they need around the clock. In addition to being cared for by a skilled staff, these facilities also provide a safe and secure environment.
Since Memory Lane is located on our campus, it makes the move easier for individuals who progress from requiring as-needed care to around-the-clock services and monitoring.

Those who need advanced care at Crandall Medical Center also have private rooms with adjacent bathrooms to give your loved one their own space to call home.
On-Campus Medical Care
We offer residents the comfort and ease of scheduled visits from physicians, including dental, optometry, podiatry, and audiology services, plus short-term rehabilitation and therapy, and more medical services. Crandall Medical Center also serves as a 190-bed rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility.
Delicious meals and snacks are prepared daily by our experienced chef and culinary team here in our senior living community. Copeland Oaks’ main dining room provides a large menu that appeals to a wide range of palates. Our menus are also created to provide choices for a wide range of dietary needs to ensure our residents get the nutrition they need.
Our housekeeping team helps ensure a clean, organized environment that is crucial for the safety and well-being of our residents. A tidy living space not only reduces the risk of accidents but also creates a pleasant atmosphere that promotes a sense of dignity. Housekeeping also plays a pivotal role in infection control, preventing the spread of illnesses among vulnerable people.
Copeland Oaks offers a wide variety of supervised activities designed to get seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia patients more social. Programming is designed to help stir memories, foster emotional connections with others, and lessen any anxiety and irritability that these chronic conditions can bring.
We provide residents with a library, art studio, community garden area, theater for live entertainment, a chapel for worship and spiritual fellowship, and more. Plus, our campus is also situated in a tranquil 250-acre plot, which includes forests and a serene lake. Residents can enjoy nature on our walking trails and lakeside benches.
Paying for Memory Care Costs
Paying for memory care costs can be a significant concern for families dealing with the challenges of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, understanding your financial options is crucial.
- Medicare is often the first consideration for many, but it’s important to note that Medicare typically does not cover long-term memory care expenses. It may cover short-term stays or rehabilitation, but it’s not a comprehensive solution for ongoing care.
- Disability insurance can be beneficial if the individual with dementia has a policy that covers long-term care. However, not everyone has this coverage, and policies vary, so it’s essential to review the terms and limitations carefully.
- Social Security benefits can provide some financial support, but they may not fully cover memory care costs.
In many cases, families find themselves covering memory care expenses out of pocket. To plan for this, consider creating a budget, explore Medicaid eligibility, or consult your financial advisors to ensure a sustainable plan that provides the necessary care without excessive financial strain.
