Generally an ALF is for people who are ambulatory and who only require “unskilled” assistance with activities of daily living. In the absence of having an aid with her (which you would probably need to hire privately) it is unlikely that an assisted living facility will accept your mother as a resident, based on your description. Moreover, if your mother wakes up frequently during the night and cannot ambulate on her own to the bathroom, it would be imprudent to not have someone supervising her in the event that she does wake up and attempt to get out of bed on her own.
That being said, there are ALF’S that have memory care units that cater specifically to people with dementia. Accordingly, they would be equipped to ensure your mothers safety at all times. I would highly recommend that you explore a memory care facility for your mother. Good luck and please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Assisted living regulations vary from state to state. Most states allow for maximum assistance with activities of daily living and are able to assist residents with transfers (some will provide 1 or 2 person transfer assistance), complete dressing, bathing, and some will include feeding as well.
