Memory care is typically a secure wing of the community. These areas provide supervision and attention to residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s. A personal care plan outlines daily support.

What does senior living pricing look like?

Most senior living communities are private-pay. Pricing at our community is more reasonable than you’d expect, with utilities, chef-prepared meals, transportation, fun activities, housekeeping, laundry, and more included! Care services are paid separately and are based on hourly prices. There are two pricing services in senior living: hospitality and healthcare.

The hospitality services are typically provided as a standard package included in what is often referred to as the “Base Rate.” At all Pegasus Senior Living communities, assisted living and memory care residents receive three meals per day, daily social activities, 24-hour support, utilities, access to all common areas and grounds, and transportation services. Additional amenities will be defined in the residency agreement.

Studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units are available for most of our Pegasus Senior Living assisted living programs. Generally, Base Rate prices will range from $90 to $150 per day. If you think about the cost of a hotel room, you’ll realize how reasonable this can be. In assisted living and memory care, residents live in a maintenance-free apartment and receive all their meals, activities, security, transportation, and utilities for substantially less than the cost of a hotel room.

Most people move into assisted living or memory care communities due to healthcare needs, and these needs can vary greatly. Some may just need help managing their medications. Others can need help with more activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and eating. As the industry evolved, it became clear that it was unfair to charge everyone the same “care rate” since the needs vary so much.

To make our pricing as fair as possible, Pegasus Senior Living develops individual care plans for each resident. We do not “nickel and dime” our families. Instead, we offer care plans that translate into “care levels.” Our communities typically have up to six potential “care levels,” and each one is based on “care time” per the plan. These plans generally translate from $10 to $15 per day for direct care or $300 to $450 per month per care level.

Your loved one will be assessed upon entry and again after 180 days. Care needs often increase or decrease. We will also call to tell you if we believe your loved one’s care needs have changed due to a change in condition or functionality; this will also trigger a reassessment and a meeting with you to discuss it.*
