If you look at the questions= there are none about how to change laws and regulations concerning our elder parents and soon to be ourselves in this situation. Why does the state take away a persons right to choose how their matters are handled once they decide to move into a assisted living facility which is not state funded= all is private pay! How are the operators of these facilities able to raise the rent however much they seem fit? Why doesn't the state step in to regulate that? We all know that Social Security pays so much and the pensions and other income at 84 yrs of age don't go to far..
My mother has lived in a assisted living facility for 3 yrs.. it's her home and she loves it; but the facility is raising her rent faster than I am able to keep up with! Its just sad for her to be forced out of her home someday because they keep raising her rent every year= her increase monthly has been $360.00 more since she moved in.
How would you guys handle this? Whichever way you look at it we will all be elders someday; what do you think will happen to you?
