Find Care & Housing
3pink is spot-on in her answer. This is a team problem and you are part of that team.

If she is on Medicaid (not Medicaid pending) then the facility in most states MUST find a facility to transfer her to. You literally can make them have to find someplace else. The NH knows full well that most family is not going to go that route so the problem of finding a new NH is the family's problem.

I agree about the medication. My mother had behavior problems and I had been told the possibility existed she could be given 30 days to find another facility. She was put on different meds and helped tremendously. Maybe you could talk to the nursing home physician. I usually would call him directly at his private practice in order to get faster results. I also met with team of nurse manager, social worker, etc. and figured it out together. I hope it all works out for you - I will keep you in my prayers.

I kow daycares do that but give 2 weeks to give them time to get onto medication, Usually within 2 weeks they are okay to stay. Good Luck, your Mom doesnt want to be like that, depakote will help tremendously! Talk to your neuro, my Mom is fabulous on it.

Unfortunately the Nursing Home can not be forced to take a resident back if they are a behavior concern posing a risk for themselves or other residents. In most cases they will say they are a risk to other residents and therefore can not be brought back into that environment. What the real reason, in most cases is, her discharge will open up a medicare bed allowing the facility to make more money. You could file a complaint with your state licensing board for nursing homes or you local ombudsman.
