Total care patient in home-setting assisted living.
When we were scouting assisted living facilities last(?) year, we toured at least one that had a total care patient. This was a small AL in a house. I've brought this up at a couple of care conferences with the nursing home but they just give me blank stares back after mechanically stating that ALs don't take total care patients.
Is this facility unusual? I think not since its owned by an RN and has staff onsite. Also because the market is so competitive, it didn't surprise me at all.
Just wondering whether anyone has had experience with a small assisted living facility offering total care. Desperate to get parent out of the Heartless Health Care Center; don't see what they're doing that can't be done in a smaller setting.
