Internal Medicine - Geriatrics

In brief: Many reasons

Living in a group care environment requires that the individual not be a threat or cause disrupted care to the others.
Other less common reasons maybe a communicable disease, like tb. Is this individual agitated, abusive and non- cooperative? Are there psychiatric issues thaty should be addressed? Is this person demented and needs a higher level of care then the home can provide?
