What I would do is call your county's Social Services department and ask for a needs assessment for him. The person who comes out will be very knowledgeable about not only what the county offers but also other resources available to him. Is your brother on Medicaid now? If not, that will probably be the worker's first suggestion. Be sure you are present during the assessment interview. Persons with dementia are often not very realistic about what they need. It is common for them to claim they don't need any help!

Best wishes to you in getting some help. You certainly deserve it!
