Has dementia & hip replacement. She has had private duty aides & myself 24th since she broke her hip & developed dementia last summer. She will be moving into AL apt that has levels of care. They will check on her every 2hrs, give meds, ADLs, as st her to dining room, tolieting. She sundowns at night but does not wander. She walks with a Rollator walker and can be unsteady at times. I want her to have the assistance she needs but I don't want to cause her not to widen her social circle. I also don't want the staff to assume they don't need to check on her because she has care. Anyone with experience with this?

First you have to ask the ALF if they will allow the private duty people on the premises. Most will require proof of certification and licensing and insurance coverage, hence they deal with agencies only.
