My mother lives in an assisted living facility. Following a double knee operation yesterday, she's going to be in in-patient rehab at a local hospital for at least two months, before returning to the ALF. Can we try to negotiate the cost of the ALF during her absence, since she won't need food, meds management, laundry, housekeeping, etc. while she's away? Has anyone done this? She's a private-pay resident, not on Medicaid.
