Dementia develops and advances distinctly for different individuals, potentially rendering it harder to determine when to engage in residential home nursing care for your parent. Elder suffering from early dementia may only need short-term care, whereas others require regular maintenance. Here is a review of how memory care can benefit your loved one with dementia.
