Assisted Living for my brother

Since my parents died, my younger brother and I are responsible for our older brother who lives with schizophrenia. He has some new health issues that have us thinking that the “Room and Board” that he lives in may not be enough to meet his developing needs.

Are there Assisted Living opportunities for the mentally ill? My brother wishes to be with people like himself and that is where he is happiest. We can private pay for whatever isn’t covered by Medicare.


I’d like to encourage you to join our forum for Family and Caregivers that can be found at:

While this is a peer support forum for people with schizophrenia and other closely related psychotic disorders, the Family forum is specifically for people like yourself, who have a loved one they are concerned about.

Also, please let your loved one know about this forum as they may find it helpful.

Best of luck,

Volunteer Moderator
