My understanding of "Board and Care" is around four seniors living together in a private home, with round-the-clock assistance from caregivers. My MIL is in a wheelchair since a recent fall, but has no significant medical problems. She has occasional confusion. Any ideas or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
