What to Consider About Memory Care in Sparks

The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public and Behavioral Health, licenses memory care facilities in Sparks. This department officially recognizes memory care facilities as assisted living facilities and requires them to follow standard rules for housing, nutrition services and care planning, and it subjects them to special regulations related to staffing, security measures and caregiver training.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Sparks

 

  • Sparks ranks as a member of the AARP Age-Friendly Network and has a variety of initiatives that support seniors’ comfort and quality of life. Current and prospective memory care residents may benefit from features such as access to high-quality medical services and the low preventable hospital rate. Additionally, the city offers reliable public transportation, enabling many families to visit local loved ones.

 

  • Washoe County, where Sparks resides, is a dementia-friendly community with community action groups that strive to create a welcoming, supportive environment for seniors and families affected by memory loss. Through the county, individuals can connect with informational resources, memory screenings and early-stage engagement activities, such as the Open Door Café and Java Music Club.

 

  • In Sparks, summers tend to be hot and dry, lasting from mid-June through mid-September. During this time, temperatures fall between 82 and 92 degrees Fahrenheit, and the dew point remains low throughout the summer, as well as the rest of the year. Winters span late November through late February and have daytime temperatures between 44 and 53 degrees. To accommodate a variety of preferences, local memory care communities typically have secured outdoor areas, as well as indoor activities scheduled throughout the week.

 

  • Nevada’s sales tax rate is high compared to other states, but the state’s property taxes are low, and it doesn’t have a state income tax. This may help some seniors afford local memory care expenses.

 

  • Northern Nevada Medical Center sits in Sparks proper, giving residents access to emergency, primary and specialty services. This hospital has a neurology department with specialists who treat a variety of conditions, including dementia and memory-related disorders.

 

  • Living costs in Sparks run high compared to other cities in the state and nation, which may be a consideration for those seeking budget-friendly memory care services. On a 100-point scale that’s formulated based on national living cost norms, the city scores 118.6, exceeding the state average by about nine points. Fortunately, Nevada funds an Assisted Living Waiver that may help qualified seniors pay for memory care.

Paying for Memory Care in Sparks

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates. No national database currently tracks memory care costs in the United States, so we've estimated the monthly memory care costs listed below by adding 25% to the rates listed in Genworth's 2021 Cost of Care Survey.

In Sparks, memory care communities impose an average monthly rate of $4,775 for services.

The Cost of Memory Care in Nearby Cities

Memory care residents in Sparks pay $4,775 per month on average for specialized services and housing. Although this exceeds the Nevada average of $4,688, it comes in 15% below the national norm, and it's modest compared to rates in most nearby cities. For example, although seniors in Las Vegas pay about 4% less for monthly services than seniors in Sparks, rates in Reno exceed the local norm by 11%. Additionally, across state lines in California, Yuba City residents pay comparatively high rates of $5,823 for care, and in Chico, seniors pay $6,383 for memory support.
