Lindsay Heckler (Center for Elder Law & Justice) on all things transfer and discharge: when they’re legal, when they’re illegal, and how to promote safe outcomes for residents. We also get into the role of ombudsmen, payment discrimination, personal needs allowance (it’s only $50 per month in NY!), hockey, and more.
