Aging is often characterized by memory issues--whether slight or severe. If slight, you may wish to have a facility with assisted living only but if moderate to severe, you may wish to look into communities that have specialized programs.
Your doctor should be consulted for prognosis, although this is not always an easy decision. Alzheimer's is difficult at best to diagnose. Severe memory issues are mainly caused by Alzheimer's, but other causes are numerable strokes and/or dementia of many kinds.
