It sounds like you may have a legal issue regarding a contract, or a series of contracts. The contract you signed and the laws in your state will help determine what the facility can and cannot do regarding moving your mother. I would recommend contacting an elder law attorney in your state or finding a general practitioner who often works with contracts. An elder law attorney should have a more intimate knowledge of the laws surrounding assisted living facilities, but a contract attorney may have more experience in negotiating or arguing contract language.
If you do not wish to consult an attorney, never underestimate the power of negotiation -- as you have established! You may be able to get what you want by being firm, but kind, with the administrative staff. In my experience, most facilities are willing to work with families who are reasonable and pay the bill on time! Good luck to you!
