Advice needed. Mum fell 4 weeks ago hurt her arm, took her to a & e, she got an infection from the fall she has been in for 4 weeks, I was told they had done a section 2 to detain her as it would not be safe for her to be living on her own(I've been saying the same for 12 months). So during this time I was told to find mum a bed in a residential home so after 2 very stressful and emotional weeks I got one, then I was told after the further assessments by district nurses etc oh no sorry she needs a nursing bed, so off I went again through the whole difficult process of trying to find a nursing bed. Mum is now in an s home that is OK for short term, can't see her being there forever, mum complained they first day and said she hates it, and to find her somewhere else. My question is what am I to expect after the 4 weeks is up? We don't anticipate her going back to the flat as she lives on her own and it's just not safe anymore for her. Will they extend her stay if I can't find her a permanent bed in a decent home ☹️
