Re: Moving elder parent to CH with Dementia

Has anyone from a non-EU country (preferably USA) moved an elder parent to CH for Memory Care?

Were in the position of investigating options at the moment, but Im in the situation as an only child with relatively no extended family of what to do with a parent with a recent dementia diagnosis. If we use assisted living in the US the parent would be alone and we could only visit one or two times a year. If we move parent here, they are close and not alone, but is it even possible - insurance, immigration etc we would have the resources to financially support.

Any help greatly, greatly appreciated!
Almost impossible. Meloncollie has made several posts on this subject so check in some of these threads.

Non-EU nationals aren't really allowed to bring their parents here, only spouse/partner and any children under 18.

"If you come from a third country
You may bring the following family members to Switzerland:

your spouse or registered partner;
your children under the age of 18."

That said there can be exceptions made if ... the parent/s are already financially relying on you to support them and there are no other relatives that could look after them. And what you consider to be enough financial support may not be what the Swiss authorities consider enough.
