In my state, there are evaluations that are used to determine what level of care the resident needs, but I think that Pamstegman is right. Memory Care units seem to know the best way to handle dementia patients. I had to place my cousin in a secure Memory Care unit, even though she's in a wheelchair, due to her rolling out to the parking lot in her wheelchair and trying to leave.

Wandering is certainly a symptom and even if your loved one hasn't experienced it yet, they very well may. I never thought my cousin would do it, since she was a homebody and dislikes the outdoors, but that didn't seem to matter. While you are placing, you might keep that in mind.
