The symptoms of PTSD and dementia may be linked, according to recent studies.
Our very own expert, Kerry Quirin has an opinion on this….
"When looking for senior living, sometimes clients will ask if the rate can be reduced. Communities will run specials from time to time, so it just depends. But, clients will also ask if the level of care charge can be taken down or negotiated. At this point, I would advise a client to see a community that is willing to negotiate that fee as a red flag. The level of care fee directly affects staffing ratios. You do not want to take that fee down because it will affect the staffing. Room rent is one thing, but staff is everything. Level of care charges should never be negotiated and it is a red flag if they are."
