Mom's nursing home says it's closed on certain holidays.
My mother was admitted to an assisted living facility in May of 2012. Her caregivers there recently told us they want us to take her from 10am-7pm every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Can they legally ask us to do that? My mom needs 24 hour care, uses a walker, and has moderate Dementia. No one in my family is able to take her for that long, that is why we put her in an Assisted living home in the first place. Her caregivers are also being rather rude about it. Not really sure what to do about this. We, of course can pick her up for a few hours on those days but not for the whole day! It just isn't possible. I am curious if I should go to the owner of the facility? Or are they within their rights to request this of us? I have just never heard of a nursing home that is closed to their patients on holidays. any advice is helpful, I am new at this :) Thanks
