My mom was put in a nursing home on long term nursing care. She was not ambulatory, used a wheelchair. She was crippled from a fall she had. They helped her eat, etc. After her medicare ran out, they put her on medicade and she was allowed to stay there. It was long term nursing-it sounds like your mother was in assisted living. Good luck.

thank you for your support. the social worker at the hospital was involved in this situation..she spoke with the nursing home and the adult home..but she can not help since there is nothing medically wrong with my Mom. My Mom is not bad physically other than weak, disoriented, and afraid of most everything. I guess my only route will be Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and the Atty. General. this is an absolute crime how the government with its rules and regulations are treating all of our senior citizens who have paid their dues to them.
again many thanks

Please ask to speak to the social worker that is at the hospital to see what can be done. If she is in bad shape (I"m so sorry) ask to get HOSPICE involved. I do hope that one of the experts on this board read your post and offer more help.

God bless.
