People with dementia can get kicked out of assisted living centers

Melanie Bishop has a story of “Modern Love” in the New York Times Sunday Styles, “I would have driven her anywhere”.  She describes two moves of her mother with dementia from assisted living centers, on in North Carolina that essentially evicted her for being “high maintenance”.  Yup, assisted living centers do have their rules.  I've seen them even for "respite stays" when my mother was alive. Evictions to happen.
The story is here
The story then winds down to a memoir of the car itself, which finally failed suddenly. Being moved back to Arizona and the car did help with memory.
