I have written here before about my 86 yo FIL. He was in an ALF for about 6 months, then caught Covid at that facility. He went to the hospital, where he recovered with no real issues (!!!). He has been diagnosed with dementia and has been bipolar for a long time. He now seems as though his meds for the latter are doing okay.
The problem is that he had some issues when at the ALF. These included angry outbursts, and possibly some threats to the staff (we are not 100% sure what exactly).
After he left the hospital, he was sent to a rehab facility. His original ALF will not accept him back, and the family is really struggling to find any place that will accept him. It certainly appears as though he is being blackballed in some way.
They are working with the ombudsman (this is NC) who has tried to help, but so far it has been a couple of weeks, and he has no where to go. I should add that he is a Medicaid patient.
I read a few other threads here that sounded similar, but I was wondering what else the family can do. Is it really possible that these places can all simply refuse him, even if he had some anger issues? I do not believe he has actually harmed anyone, nor do I think he would. He is angry, but this seems to be common for people in his position.
Any thought or advice about what his family might be able to do would be welcomed.
