My mother has dementia and was served a Section 28 as she would not let the carers in her home to change her (she is incontinent) and she had an open bed sore. After lots of discussion it was decided that that would be the only option to get her the care that she needs. The hospital are now wanting to get their bed back and it was decided that she should now go into a home and describe her needs as 'general nursing'. However we are finding that as soon as we mention the Section, we are turned down by the homes. There is so much discrimination surrounding mental health and despite the hospital and our family explaining fully why she was sectioned they seem to be turning her down based on this. The home we were hoping to put her into said the Section was a "Red Flag" for them. How can we overcome this? I don't want her to go somewhere anyway where they have doubts, but I am getting worried that the hospital will force her into a home that isn't of our choosing. Surely there is some legislation surrounding this, the are basing decisions on what is written on paper rather than the person?
