Being asked to move MiL out of Care Home

We were shocked today to be asked (over the phone) to move my husband's mum out of the care home she is in. We were told that she is displaying sexually inappropriate behaviour and they cannot handle it. This was the first we had heard of this and feel so disappointed that they do not seem to be prepared to try to manage this. It is not an unusual presentation in Alzheimer's and the care home said they managed challenging behaviour.
My mother in law has been so happy there after a traumatic initial move 4 months ago. We are so worried that we are not going to be able to find somewhere that will accept her and be prepared to manage this behaviour.
Any advice / knowledge of care homes that might deal with this (we're in Surrey) would be much appreciated.

How awful for you. I'm sorry not to have any helpful suggestions other than to suggest you start making enquiries of other homes in the area. Is she self-funding? I had to reply as a fellow Surrey-ite.
