Q:Can my parent be asked to leave assisted living due to bad behavior, such as aggression and screaming at staff and other patients?
A: Yes, your mother can be asked to leave an assisted living due to behaviors. If the assisted living thinks the behaviors are out of their scope to handle or if they think the behaviors could cause harm to self, residents or staff they could give you notice that they can not meet your mother's needs any longer. You may want to research and visit specialty assisted living facilities that specialize in dementia type care.
These facilities are sometimes better equipped to manage the behaviors associated with Alzheimer's and dementia, including aggression, anger, anxiety and wandering.
