Hi all -My mother's been there over a month now and as of last week contracted COVID. She was in a general state of decline anyway so this just exacerbates her physical and mental decline. The facility told me she would have to stay an additional 2 weeks AFTER her symptoms are gone, so I anticipate she'll be there quite a while.
Besides dealing with that, an immediate problem is I need to continue to pay the AL facility which is part of the same complex, and after this week we'll have to start paying for the rehab side too, since insurance coverage will stop. The more I think about it the angrier I get - she contracted COVID there, will be forced to remain there, and PAY for both sides indefinitely.
I have a meeting scheduled with admins from both sides this week that was scheduled to talk about where she can live, and would appreciate any suggestions on how to 'negotiate' with them on a reduced rate or any other points I can raise, under the circumstances.
