My uncle is in currently in an ALF. He is wheelchair bound and now the ALF says he is experiencing memory issues and some behavioral issues. So, most of the time he is in a good mood when I talk to him. The problem is that he can get angry his mood changes fast. He also gets very upset when things aren't exactly as he wants them - for example when he has to wait to long for response to his call bell. He sometimes yells at the staff and uses offensive language. Because of all this, they raised his care costs. They don't think he has dementia and not a memory care patient they said. This facility also has a separate memory care unit if that is needed.
There are really nice assisted living communities going up all over the place around us opening soon. They have tons more amenities. I've been in contact with them and even at their highest care levels, the prices for my uncle would be cheaper. My uncle has been wanting to move for a while and is interested.
Here is my question: Will his behavior be a big problem getting into a nice place? When they talk to him, he will certainly be nice and polite. But will the clinical record show the behavioral issues? Will that be enough to worry new facilities? If they think someone is developing dementia and has behavioral issues, will most communities deny admittance? Will only communities with a dedicated memory care unit consider him?
