My home care agency has many clients with advanced dementia but not usually as primary diagnosis unless new and need caregiver education/ get adult protective services involved. What aspect are you concerned about: teaching someone who's so forgetful, not having a caregiver, need for protective service referral, medication mismanagement, or agency milking visits?

Not all demential patients live in memory care units.

What is your question?

Do you think that dementia patients shouldn't qualify for home care?
