In brief: Depends

It depends on the level of care needed and the level of complexity on medical conditions on each individual.
The more care they get the higher stress. Ask a geriatrician to find creative solutions that make caregiver less stressful - for example maybe medications cause behavioral problems or side effects or maybe this person needs physical therapy for transferring training.
