where do we place elderly stroke patient that needs pt

my mother is 74 with severe rheumatoid arthritis. she definitely has pain issues. however, she chooses to take less med and be awake with pain than too much and sleep through the day.
now she's had a stroke and she needs pt. we were at a place that did great pt, worked well with her pain, but the nursing was appalling and dangerous. we've been to places with good nursing, but they refuse to do any pt at all, any at all, if they feel she has any pain. so they drug her up until she is asleep and then call her unresponsive.
without a doubt my mother is not the first person to go through this. what do i do?
