Facility for mom with health issues?

Hi my mom is 71 years old. She has a colostomy bag and is now at a stage where she can no longer take care of her day to day needs. I have been caring for her for many years now, but it is time we now find her the full time care that she needs. She is of fairly sound mind, and has asked that we find somewhere for her where she can get the companionship as well as the medical day to day assistance that she needs. Could you recommend where and how I can start looking?
I would really appreciate your help.

I suggest that you contact old age homes with medical care facilities. Unfortunately, you did not say where you are situated and I am therefore not able to be of much assistance.
