I recently had a frustrating experience with a physician regarding a client who would have absolutely thrived in assisted living. The doctor insisted that because of his past knowledge of assisted living, he “just knew” they couldn’t meet his patient’s needs; he was adamant that a nursing home was the only option. This opened my eyes to the fact that many professionals may not be aware of the higher level of care that can be provided safely and effectively in many assisted living communities.
