Dementia Caretaker Advice

My father was just diagnosed with dementia a week ago and I believe he's already in the middle stages.  He's verbally abusive, gets easily confused and already at times looses defecating control.

How do II know or what criteria shold be used to determine when it is time to enter him into a Memory Care facility?  Or, can he be care for in his own home with professional assitance?
