If the patient prefers communal life or needs much care, a residential facility is the best option.
In brief, nursing homes provide round-the-clock care and long-term medical treatment. Most nursing homes have services and staff to deal with issues such as nutrition, care planning, recreation, spirituality and medical care. Different nursing homes have different staff-to-resident ratios. Also, the staff at one nursing home may have more experience or training with dementia than the staff at another.
So you should do a lot of research and preparation work before finally decide the most suitable one.
