My mother (who is my Alzheimer's caregiver) has expressed an interest in moving into assisted living with me in San Mateo. Even though she does not have Alzheimer's, would she still be able to move into a memory care community? I appreciate your expertise, thanks

Hi Marie. We're glad to be able to help you learn more about your senior living options. We have many community profiles on or platform in the San Mateo area that may fit your needs. 

The answer to your above question is yes. Many assisted living communities that specialize in memory care allow loved ones to move in together, even if only one of you has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's. This will depend on their availability, but you may want to look into a shared room at a memory care community, where you and your mother will be able to stay close and both receive the care you need as you age. 
On our homepage, you can search for communities by inputting your desired area and time frame. Our Carefinder tool will then walk you through the process of narrowing your results by things like budget, community features, and care needs. You can browse communities on our "Profiles" page and take a peek at the pictures and community videos that will give you a better sense of the space. From there, you can contact the community directly with further questions or save your favorite options to come back to them later on. 
You can also call us at (415) 570-4370 for a free care consultation, and we'll be happy to set you up with a family coordinator who can walk you through the process step-by-step. Thank you for using Seniorly and we look forward to helping you find the home that feels right for you.
