Re: Assisted living vs. Nursing home care??
In stage 6 AD she needs custodial care. That means 24 hours around the clock care. Assistance is not enough. She would not be able to take care of herself in her assisted iving apartment, even if she were 100% physically fit, which she isn't.
Try to find her a place in a good nursing home. I know it is horrendously expensive. My Mom had to use up her life's savings, and when that was gone they put her on Medicaid. It was worth it - no one would be able to care for her at home as well as she is being cared for at the NH.
Good luck with it.
