My mom was "on the bubble" for her violent outbursts and trying to hit the staff members on a few occasions in her ALF facility. They made me aware of this a week after the first incident and then one more time when they've had enough. So, I had to look for another home for her quickly. Thankfully, there are facilities that will take aggressive behaviors. She was awful and mean to everyone. This behavior can be due to dementia, medication issues, emotional distress, etc. Nonetheless, I was able to get her medications adjusted and moved to the memory care part of the same ALF. So far so good. She has adjusted ok but still has her moments. I know now its best to always have plan B and C ready.

Sometimes if the cause is mental illness, the patient can be admitted into a psychiatric hospital to have their medication adjusted or established. That could cause a huge change.

Not only yes he can get the boot, but the state department of health will insist that he is relocated to a safe place that can handle bad behavior. Please do not let this go, or social services will take protective custody of him.

A NH can absolutely evict someone who is no longer a proper fit for their care level or whose family members are not supportive of the facility's staff who are only doing their jobs. Dealing with demented patients is difficult enough for NH staff. If family-staff interactions are even more time consuming and tense then this is keeping the staff from giving other residents the time and attention they need. You signed a contract and I would advise you to read it. Good luck.

Yes, he can be. Particularly if he is assaulting other patients. A friend's dad got kicked out for sexual assault. The current place for my mother was considering throwing her out for hitting staff and chasing people with her walker with the intent to run them down. (!!!!). However, with negotiation and medication and time, things have settled down. But yes, facilities can kick people out for violating the rules you were made aware of at the time of admission or engaging in criminal behavior.

I think is something you'll need to discuss with wherever he is living. Each home has different policies.
But hopefully there are ways to intervene before it comes to him being evicted. Don't give up on him and his bad behavior, there are other options to try to see if his behavior can be rectified.

Doicie, I'm wondering if he needs a facility with a higher level of care? Can the bad behavior be controlled by medication or therapy?

I would carefully read the admission/application paperwork to see if the facility has the authority, and what the conditions governing it are.

My uncle with Alzheimer's was asked to leave by his nursing home because they had no way to control his wandering. He kept wandering into women's rooms and frightening them. The NH didn't give him a set time, but asked the family to find him a more appropriate place. It was not berating my uncle, but realizing that they didn't have the ability to serve him without causing others distress. I believe the family had him moved within the month.
