This is probably the most painful decision you'll ever make, because Reason tells you one thing and the Heart tells you something else. You might feel like a traitor at first, but the guilt of not knowing for sure if you did the right thing has to be dropped eventually.

"Support for Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregivers" at helpguide.org will help you realize you've actually done the best you can with what you have; and been wise enough to know it's time for a higher level of care.

Be well my friend, and keep us posted.
