What are average staffing ratios at Memory Care Centers?
I have recently inquired into a couple local Memory Care Facilities and on day and evening shifts the staff to pt ratios were 1:6 and 1:8. On nights the staff to pt ratio was 1:18 and 1:15. That night shift ratio sounds like a lot of ALZ/Dementia pts for one staff person to care for. Am I way off base or is this the average? I would appreciate your opinions. Thanks
