Serenades at Longwood Memory & Personal Care Services

A healthy dose of day-to-day assistance, expert Alzheimer’s and dementia care programming, behavior management and comforting TLC eases residents’ anxiety, boosts self-esteem and gives them the physical ability and encouragement to participate in the lively events happening around them.

Virtually all memory care residents will require some form of memory care, personal assistance and supervision, so Serenades at Longwood includes many services in the monthly rent. For those requiring extensive, highly personalized memory care, assistance or daily nursing services (as permitted by limited nursing license), an additional monthly care fee is added to the rent based on the level of care required.

Private Suite Starting $5,900
Companion Suite Starting at $5,425


Memory Care Levels I–III Included in Monthly Rent
Extensive Memory Care Levels IV–IX Starting at $400 / Month


Paying for advanced services and care on an as-needed basis benefits all Serenades at Longwood residents: Those in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia who require fewer resources to maintain their independence appreciate the lower monthly rate; families of residents who require higher levels of attention and expertise appreciate that their care fees are applied directly to their loved ones’ comfort, happiness and quality of life. For example, this fee allows us to hire the most experienced and trusted advanced-memory care staff available – and raise staffing levels if needed – for maximum care, safety and support.
