After caring for my mother in our home for 6 years, she has reached a point where we can no longer provide the care she needs 24 hours a day. She is 85 years old and relatively healthy. Her Primary illness is Alzheimer's which has progressed to the point where she needs to be monitored almost 24/7.
We are now faced with the challenge of finding a safe and caring facility to place her in when she has very very limited financial resources and my family does not have a lot of money to contribute.
I am hoping through this forum to hear from other families that have already faced this challenge to gain insight into what suggestions they have.
