The last 3 years rent has gone up about 5%; now they are charging a "daily rate" and the total is MUCH more. I've called & written letters, researched and visited other facilities. What it ends up with is that I really believe that moving her from the place she is (??) familiar with (although she always thinks she just moved in) will upset her so much it may lead to a fatal condition. Paying the rate increase means she won't have money left for her favorite thing -- gifts for her sisters, kids grand & great grands. I don't want to threaten but what else is there?
