Dear Carol: My mom, 87, suffered a fall three months ago and has been having physical therapy in her assisted living facility. She was doing well with the rehab but then from a medical perspective, she stopped making progress. So now, even though she needs this therapy to stay stable, the facility says that Medicare will no longer cover the cost. Is this true? It sounds like a stupid rule since she will slide back and then need therapy again but meanwhile, she will suffer more pain and be less mobile. I like the facility and they are doing a good job overall. I know a move would be hard on her and could even set her back. Do you know if the facility is right? – GD
