We have a dilemma: Mum has had Alzheimer's for coming up to 3 years now (she's 59). She lives in her own home but we (family) had thought it would be a good idea to move to a sheltered flat where she could be more supported, which she was happy with. But now we are not sure if this is such a good idea. In her own home she knows her way round both the house and the area, the local people know her, and she has family members very close by. However if she was in a sheltered I feel she could live there independently for longer, and therefore delay the time when she will inevitably go to full time care. There would be a warden there to look out for her, and the flats would be designed for people with disabilities. Any opinions?
