Short term of less than a minute is far beyond the capability of a regular assisted living facility to handle. However, I am not sure they can just turn her out onto the street after 30 days - that would be an "unsafe discharge". Don't know if that applies to assisted living facilities.

My MIL qualified for a Medicaid funded nursing home once her dementia progressed to the point where she was incontinent. Her other medical needs could have been handled without skilled nursing care. Others in her section of the nursing home were likewise not medically frail but definitely mentally not there.
He says he wants to keep the family peace, he's failing miserably.

The facility she is in, as I said, has memory care for ALZ patients on site. They just don't want her.They have quoted the appicable law to us regarding booting her out, legally they need only give us 15 days notice, we have 30.
