Assisted living can be a haven for many older adults who need just a little extra help to maintain their independence. What happens, though, when the facility's director calls and tells you that your elderly relative is being evicted?
That sort of thing happens all the time. For the facilities, it's often an issue of liability. When a senior's health deteriorates, the facility may make the determination that it simply can't meet the senior's needs. Sometimes, however, evictions are thinly-veiled punishments for seniors and family members who have complained about inadequate care.
