When a senior loved one gets diagnosed with dementia, they may be able to take care of themselves for some time. However, their well-being will largely depend on their family as the disease advances. Since caring for a person with dementia is anything but easy, your family may at one point find it too difficult to meet your loved one’s needs and start considering placing them in a memory care facility. You should know that this is not your only solution.
