My dad has Alzheimer's and needs memory care. My mom is still pretty sharp and needs assisted living. My mom decided to move to the memory care unit in a companion suite with my dad. Now it seems that this was not the best decision for her and two sources have mentioned that it might be better if she lived separately and was able to come to visit him. How do you separate a couple that has been inseparable for 67 years? Also how do you afford the cost of memory care and assisted living? The plan was to keep them in the same facility but my dad's condition progressed more quickly than expected so they moved to memory care about a year before planned. They are both in their 90s and live 5 hours from me. I am the only child.
