My dad is in a memory care facility but he is one of two higher-functioning residents. My dad and his buddy are fully ambulatory, able to carry on a conversation, etc. The other residents are out-of-it most of the time, slumped over in wheel chairs. My dad's buddy got moved to the adjacent building, which is a regular ALF but fully secured (locked). It is more cheerful and there are more suitable activities for a functional person. I am meeting with the facility director next week to see about moving my dad next door with his buddy and into a more active atmosphere.
