Hi All, We have a review meeting regarding my father-in-law tomorrow. He was sectioned under Section 2 MHA 7 weeks ago because he was getting aggresive in his CH. He was subsequently moved onto a Section 3. He went to a psychiatric unit 40 miles away for assessment (no beds round here) and was then moved (not our choice) last week to another psychiatric unit more local. In the 7 weeks he has had 3 general hospital admissions for infections which are sorted now. During this last 7 weeks he has deteriotated so much. He is barely mobile (mostly with a wheelchair), does not talk, often refuses food. When he opens his eyes he doesn't focus at all and has a vacant look. He doesn't recognise us. I'm worried that tomorrow they'll want us to find a nursing home for him. But he has very challenging behaviour. He has a catheter and keeps trying to pull it out. He doesn't like personal care and is very strong in resisting it - it took 4 people at the weekend to clean him up after he soiled himself (I think he might be doubly incontinent now or moving that way). The unit where he is has him under 1:1 supervision because of his behaviour. Can a nursing home ever offer that? I'm so afraid they will rush us into a decision and that a NH isn't really the right place for him. Also does anyone have any knowledge of Section 117 funding? I have read that once a patient is on a Section 3 all their future care is funded, but I'm also sure I read that some authorities are trying to get out of it.
