Can a board and care facility just up and transfer my mother to another board and care facility just because they do not like her?
My mother reported the owner/caretaker, Myrna, to her psychiatrist for abuse because the woman is screaming at her constantly. The psychiatrist reported her to adult protective services. I met this woman and she IS very abrasive to my mother, even in front of me. She is frustrated and angry with my mother because my mother cannot get around due to casts on both legs. I began looking for a different home, but without much luck because my mother has a tiny income. Then this woman treated my mother so roughly in front of a nurse and receptionist, and was so rude to the receptionist at my mother's doctor appointment, that my mother's primary care doctor called the police to report her for elder abuse again. I finally found a board and care home to tour with my sister next week, but frankly the place looks frightening on googlemaps even if the woman on the phone sounds nice. Then Myrna calls me and says that my mother will be moved out on Monday, that she is taking her to the bank to get cash out, (another thing that i am VERY uncomfortable with!) But when asked, she didn't know the name of the place, and wasn't certain of the owner's name, but gave me the name Nellie. She did give me a phone number and I have been able to do a search since then. What I am angriest at is that she tells me on a Saturday when I cannot get a hold of this new place, or the agency I am working with, so that I can find out if it is a safe place to place my mother. Myrna tells me that she wants my mother out because she has another person coming in who is going to pay more money. And she tells me that my mother should not lie so much. I assume she means about the emotional abuse.
