At Right Choice, we understand the various home stages of dementia and the specific care each stage requires. We also understand the weight that dementia and Alzheimer’s care can have on the family and the home in general. Our goal is to allow the family help to keep time spent on their loved one instead of caring for them in the home.
We staff caregivers that are educated and patient in Alzheimer’s care. We pair our caregivers based on the unique needs and circumstances of the client. Alzheimer’s can cause our clients to present a range of behaviors, from uninterested, to combative, from forgetful to lively. Our dementia caregivers are trained to serve and encourage both the client and the family.
We provide memory care for our dementia clients to help with their cognitive impairment. We encourage them to maintain their own self care practices like oral hygiene, eating and taking their medications. Because every situation is different, we provide custom care plans for the unique care needs of your loved one.
If the person with Alzheimer’s or dementia is a Medicare beneficiary, Medicare will pay for some, but not all, care costs.
Medicare is a federal health insurance program generally for people age 65 or older who are receiving Social Security retirement benefits or who are younger than 65 and received Social Security disability benefits for at least 24 months. Regardless of whether receiving retirement and/or disability benefits or not, everyone should apply for Medicare three months prior to his or her 65th birthday to avoid future penalties.
Medicare covers inpatient hospital care and some of the doctors’ fees and other medical items for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia who are age 65 or older. Medicare Part D also covers many prescription drugs.
Medicare will pay for up to 100 days of skilled nursing home care under limited circumstances. However, custodial long-term nursing home care is not covered.
Medicare will pay for hospice care delivered in the home, a nursing facility or an inpatient hospice facility for people with dementia who are determined by a doctor to be near the end of life.

As my mother-in-law’s Alzheimer’s increases, Right Choice Home Care has been a lifesaver for both my wife and I. We’re… both soothing her, and we thought we were capable of caring for her. We looked for places that would give her compassionate care at the end of her life. We never expected her to be so well cared for as her ability to function deteriorated. She is now quite comfortable, and she is kept clean, safe, and entertained with compassion and patience. In an ideal world, Right Choice Home Care would be the gold standard for Alzheimer’s care for a loved one. We will be forever thankful to them.read more
