Does a senior living facility have the right to kick my family member out?
A senior living facility says they can’t keep my family member there because he has too many behaviors and they can’t do one to one care which is what they require, and is violent with the staff. However, this is a senior living facility and they offer full healthcare services so do they have the right to kick my family member

'Healthcare services' does not cover policing or handling violent residents. If your family member is violent and could harm people you will be asked to move him to a home where different types of carers work - those who are strong and tough and who have been trained to handle such behaviour. It costs a lot for such care but it will be your only option if you cannot find a different solution to his behaviour. No worker or resident should come to any harm from another resident - this is not why they are there.

Yes, if he has behavioral problems or has dementia. He has to go to the appropriate type of facility. He may be harmful to other residents. They dont do this without good cause.

Absolutely they have the right to kick out anyone who is violent, for the protection of the other residents as well as the staff. If your family member is so disruptive that he can't be controlled, then he needs to be placed in a facility for mentally disturbed patients rather than a senior living facility.

They absolutely do have the right if he is violent. Get him in for a thorough check up to see if they can find out what might be causing his issues. Ask the doctor for help in finding the best place for him.

Why would any health care facility NOT have the right to refuse care for anyone? Especially if that person in question is very difficult to deal with and dangerous to other patients?

Yes but it seems a doctor would be able to prescribe something that would calm him down .

Read the contract. Not all facilities have the staff or ability to care for those who are violent. My aunt, who had Alzheimer’s, started hitting people and trying to leave. She got lost twice. They had to move her to a special ward. They were able to provide the care she needed. Not all facilities can.

There are not many reasons in which a senior living facility may kick out residents although violence and behavioral problems are adequate cause.

A privately owned facility can make and enforce their own rules. They have a right to run it as they see fit. You only have a right to pay!
