Hi, my mum has very advanced PSP and has been in hospital for over 4 months and has nowhere to go now. There is no reason for her to be there. She went in for a two week 'assessment' and has been stuck there ever since. Her needs are too high for all the care homes we have tried, but she has been turned down (dishonest assessor) for continuing care. They are dosing her with tranquillizers as she is very anxious and just tries to go home several times a day. They have a deprivation of liberty order for her and physically prevent her from leaving, which she cries about. She has declined very rapidly in the hospital as she is very unhappy being imprisoned there.
