In assisted living they either have to be able to walk or self-propel a wheelchair a reasonable distance. They also need to transfer themselves to a toilet, wheelchair or whatever.
No assisted living facility and most nursing home will accept someone on a ventilator. Keep in mind a ventilator and just being on oxygen are two very different things.
