The resident will probably be "urged" into a wheelchair with "concerns" about a fall risk or "balance challenges" at their age.
TRANSLATION: Only if the resident is non mobile is there a guarantee they remain in Long Term Care; with mobility they might be moved or could be placed in Assisted Living --- however, if they are dependent on Medicaid, there is no allowance for Assisted Living, only Long Term Care.
Great for the facility; guarantees occupancy.
Unfortunately, this "confinement" comes with many limitations:
You might not be able to stand and reach for something you want/need; you may need assistance getting on or off the toilet,
Getting into the "medicine cabinet" that's placed well above your head for a toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant or other items means someone will have to get it for you....
you may not be able to see yourself in the mirror in the bathroom as well as you'd like while seated in the wheelchair because it's hung so high;
you may not be able to maneuver your wheelchair in and out with the trashcan that's placed against the door to the bathroom to hold it open because it always swings shut without the weight of the can against it;
you may not be able to remember where you put those personal care items you remember now and again you'd like to use;
drop something under the bed and see how long it takes for anyone to notice;
misplace anything and have staff tell you "they'll take care of it" only to never see it again.
