My parents are getting older and my Dad is in the first stages of Dementia. Are there places they can live together where they will both get the care they need?

Thanks for your question! 


There are definitely senior living communities that the two of them can move into together. Some Memory Care communities will allow both spouses to be residents, even if only one has a diagnosis of Dementia. But there are other options as well, including Assisted Living communities and Independent Living options. 

The most important thing to consider is getting your parents the type of care they need. Sit down and have a conversation with them about what is most important in their future home. Amenities and services vary from community to community, so you may need to tour several options before deciding on one that is right for them.
