Mum is in a mental health assessment unit in hospital, is in a much improved state after some weeks there, and is now ready for discharge. Our preferred Home does not have a bed currently, the others (only 3) who are able to take her with her level of needs also have no beds aprt from one. We are being urged to accept this place as an interim measure if nothing else, but when we visited the Home it is undergoing much-needed refurbishment throughout and the noise levels were not good - drill hammers, noise, mess, residents amongst it. Works will not be complete until the end of summer. I feel we should reject this place, but wonder what others would do in this situation? Mum has always liked peace and quiet, and part of the reason for her sectioning was due to her torment, and this impacted on her physical state. I feel that in the wrong environment she would lose ground and it would be harmful to her. It is also some distance to travel. Yet she is in an acute setting at the moment, they want her bed, and they don't think it is in her best interests to stay. We think, given the alternatives, it is. Any views would be appreciated.
