I am trying to find a suitable assisted living facility in Southern
California for my wife who is 41 years old and has cognitive impairment
due to multiple strokes. I've checked my local caregiver resource
center, my state's community care licensing facility (for ARFs), and
called placement referral services but to no avail. The places
I've contacted are biased toward seniors, boarding homes that allow for
at most 1 person under 60, or for mentally unstable (bi-polar,
psychotic, etc.) people. Right now the closest option are the
boarding homes, which settings and activities are geared toward seniors.
My wife needs supervision and some assistant with her ADLs but she still
enjoys going out (malls, movies, beaches, parks, etc.) which isn't
conducive to a boarding home environment (i.e. she will be living with
only seniors). There must be facilities that are geared to a
younger crowd. Please help.
