I am new to the site and its comforting to understand that others are experiencing the same symptoms as mum. We are really worried , the consultant and social worker visited mum at home yesterday (she lives with my niece) and have said that they intend to take mum into hospital on a voluntary section in two weeks time . She is being cared for and the only rationale seems to be ' observation' . When we questioned the action we were told that if we objected then they would section her anyway ! Does any one have any experience or advice ? We dont want mum to be moved into hospital unless she needs medical attention . Shes 92 and gets frightened very easily .
