Looking for elder care LA/BOS/NYC?

My 87 year old mom is currently at the Psych ward in Fall River, RI. Her mental health has been deteriorating recently and we are looking into places that she might be comfortable at if and when she is no longer able to be at home in Wellfleet, Cape Cod with 24 hour care.

Her Dementia and paranoia seem to be the issues that keep home health care at bay, she can become violently uncontrollable at times, sometime after long lapses of nearly complete normal (for her) behavior. She is fiercely independent, living alone on a sand cul de sac on a marshy area of Wellfleet for the last 40 years.
Any thoughts, guidance and pointers on long term care places that cater to patients with dementia and psychiatric disorders, and where she could have a view of some sort, and maybe even where they would allow pets.
near me Los Angeles?
near my sister NYC?
near where she currently lives: Cape Cod, MA?
