Do we have to give notice before visiting?

My mom is in a group home and the owner told us we cannot visit unless we give 24 hours notice. Is this normal?

In the larger facilities you do not need to pre-arrange the visit during visiting hours.
I would suggest contacting your state health and social service department since each state will vary on requirements. You probably can find this online just make sure its current.I see this 2 ways. First would be to make sure your mom is available and not on outing. A slower time of day or not during meals , crowding issue. The other is why? Were you given any information on visiting or booklet? Either way I would ask. Call social services for your own information and I would defintely ask why 24 hours. I feel it's your mother, your the party paying and you need to be able to get all answers.
