Is it considered normal for a social worker from a nursing home to request a "family meeting" after a patient (w/ dementia and psychiatric issues) has only been there for one week? The "reason" given by the social worker for the meeting was to discuss the patient's progress from "counseling." The patient has endlessly been requesting to go home due to being too far from home (his original home & friends) and not liking the food. The patient had to go to the nursing home due to needing 24 hr/7 day a week care per doctor's orders. The patient can no longer live on his own and will not accept it. This was the only nursing home that had bed availability and that would admit him from the psychiatric facility. He's Medicaid approved for long term care.
