Assisted Living Tidbits:
Great questions and comments that we have received about Aspen Leaf, and assisted living that can serve as examples of the types of questions you and your family might consider asking potential facilities:
Q: Do you accept patients that suffer from short term memory loss? My brother is 54 and suffered a severe brain injury 32 years ago. He tends to wonder off and we are interested in a facility that would be locked down. - Brenda
Learn More About Assisted Living:
One of the most unfortunate and emotionally challenging events that could happen in an assisted living facility is having you or your loved one asked to leave involuntarily.
At times, an assisted living facility may no longer have the staff, expertise, or equipment necessary to care for a resident whose condition may have deteriorated beyond what the facility can provide. This may be the case with a resident who has late-stage Alzheimer's, or perhaps a dementia or condition that makes the resident aggressive or abusive towards the staff.
In any case, this may be a sudden development with the resident, forcing them, and their family or caretakers to scramble for new long term care arrangements. Not an easy task if the resident does not live near immediate family or friends. It may also present a challenge if there are not many suitable options in the same area (rural areas, such as Flagler, Colorado are a good example).
Before committing to an assisted living facility, if possible, ask what their facility discharge policy is, and ask it they have this policy in writing. This way, you may be better prepared for, and understand when and why it may happen in the future.
