All-Inclusive Monthly Pricing
We believe that you shouldn’t have to worry about various “levels of care” or “points” charges, which are popular at many memory care communities. Under this type of pricing model, your rate could increase at any moment, without any notice, just because you receive more care. Reflections at Homestead Hills charges one all-inclusive monthly fee, which includes all of your care, no matter how much you need. That’s because we want billing to be the least of your worries.
At our community, you pay one rate for all your care while in memory care.

How Memory Care Works
Memory care through Reflections at Homestead Hills offers numerous benefits that you can’t get from non-specialized living options. Our memory care facilities are specially designed by experts in Alzheimer’s and dementia to be an ideal living environment for the members we serve. They offer floorplans that are easily maneuverable, plenty of sunlight to promote well-being and secured doors so that members with symptoms of wandering are kept safe.
Our community stands out even more because of its high level of luxury. The vibrant common areas as well as spacious and elegant accommodations provide a great setting for members to enjoy time with their friends and family. No matter what their condition, a living space should bring members joy, and our community is built with this goal in mind.
Living at our memory care community means access to a team of caregivers who are all specially trained and certified in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Our caregivers have years of experience and in-depth knowledge about memory-related illnesses, which allows them to provide expert care geared toward each member’s specific needs. Part of what they do is engage members in mentally stimulating activities based around memory, reasoning and information processing, which have been shown to help maintain mental acuity and slow the progression of symptoms. They also assist members in general areas where they have difficulty, which might include help getting dressed, assistance with eating, reminders of upcoming family visits, medication management and more. Members of our community are at various stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia, and each person has a unique set of needs. The care we provide is personalized to each individual, with a focus on minimizing stress and promoting a sense of purpose and dignity.
Customized, Person-Centered Dining
Depending on the stage of Alzheimer’s or dementia they are at, members can have a wide variety of dietary needs. Because of this, we offer a range of dining options. Some members have very little difficulty eating and can be given traditionally-prepared food, while others need more adaptive options such as bite-sized or pureed portions. Our community’s onsite dietician assesses the needs of each member and creates them a customized dining and nutrition plan. When it comes to this lifelong task that brings so many dementia patients difficulty, Reflections at Homestead Hills seeks to bring the joy back to eating.

Living With Alzheimer’s and Dementia
A Blog Series
Understanding that your loved one may have a form of dementia can be a difficult and trying time. While there is no single test that can diagnose a person, it’s vital to identify and become aware of the symptoms attributed to dementia. There are various cases of dementia and on average, Alzheimer’s accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases, while Vascular dementia (which occurs after a stroke) is the second most common form.
