Care facility options 

Every individual and family situation is unique. For that reason, there simply isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” solution when it comes to dementia care. You need to consider what’s right for you and your family.

It’s common to have a range of questions

  • When is the right time to consider seniors’ housing?
  • Who should I speak with? 
  • What types of options are available? 
  • Does the government provide assistance? Is financial assistance available? 
  • What is the process?
  • What are the costs involved?
These are great questions – and we have information that can help. Explore our related sessions and workshops or check out some of the resources below:
