My parents have been in assisted living for a year and a half. Dad has progressed Parkinson's and they knew that when they accepted him. His mind is very much in tact; has lost all his speech but we communicate via iPad and email; severe neurothopy in legs but still manage to transfer and walk with walker to bathroom. Otherwise he is in motorized wheel chair. Every time he slips or has a slight tumble, it is like the world is coming to an end and a call is made for an intervention. Honestly, I think they are just after more money. Their answer..move him up another care level or bring in outside care to sit with them when he MIGHT fall..out of pocket of course, cost of $50,000/yr in addition to the $86,000/yr they are already paying. So frustrating!!
