We are currently looking at nursing homes for my mother who has Alzheimer's. The home that we like the best has one policy that I'm unsure of. Anytime a resident in their Alzheimer's wing is in their bedroom the bedroom door is locked from the outside. My fear is that my mom will panic if she can't get out of her bedroom. I also worry about the safety aspect. Do other dementia nursing homes do this? Is it legal in Michigan?
