Relationships between parents and their children aren’t always picture-perfect, and as people grow older they can change for the better or for the worse. Caregiving an aging parent isn’t an easy feat, but it can be much more stressful if the parent has dementia.
Unfortunately, there is no way to predict how long the adjustment period will last. It can take days, weeks, or months. Much of the outcome depends upon the type and severity of dementia, if your loved one is prepared for the move, the environment (the facility), and the level of support that is given (by yourself, family, and staff) during and after the move.
Making the decision to move your loved one to memory care can be a very difficult choice but knowing how to identify the signs that 24-hour care is necessary can help you evaluate and make that critical determination.
The type of care provided to your loved one with memory impairment is principal to the cost of their care. Learn more about the price difference between Assisted Living and Memory Care and why.

However, this process alone comes with an additional set of risks not associated with infection.
