I know a couple of people who have utilized similar facilities and were very satisfied with the situation. The one couple shared the same apartment and the care staff came there to provide services. The other couple started out sharing the same apartment, but as the spouse with dementia required more intense care and security, she moved to the memory care unit which was in the same building, so it was easy for the spouse to maintain close contact. With the help of A Place for Mom, I would suggest that you call some of the facilities in your or your parent’s area to see how flexible are their services. Be sure to visit the facilities before you make any final decisions. If your father is able and for sure his wife should also visit the facility before making any final decisions. I wish you well in helping your father and his wife find the situation that works best for them.
