Would the facility be responsible for anything negative that might happen? And can the facility refuse to allow this unlicensed person to do this work?

I would think not. That said, would the facility allow the family to pay for additional PT and would it be a provider the facility chooses or would the family choose?

A good source for information is the long term care ombudsman, she/he can advocate for the resident.

This is coming from a very bossy and ignorant daughter of the resident. Her mother has had a stroke an has a severe case of dementia. Most likely she is not going to be walking as she once did. The daughter does not want to believe this. She was forced to put her in a facility because they could not take care of her properly. She had been using her money that is now being used to pay for her care. I am concerned about the risk factor of the facility an weather or not they can just refuse to allow this to happen citing liability factors.

The facility would toss them out immediately. They allow only licensed insured agencies with certified personnel who are background checked. They have every right to protect the patients and themselves.

You would need to check with the facility to see if they allow an unlicensed person to do physical therapy. Chances are they wouldn't allow this.

Why would a grown child want to use someone who isn't licensed to do such work on their parent? Is it a friend of the daughter?
