I moved mum to a care home near me about six weeks ago as she was struggling at home. The home have requested a Deprivation of Liberty Safeguarding order and mum was assessed over this last week. From what I can understand they think she is in the right place and no longer has the capacity to live independently. I haven't seen anything in writing yet. Mum vehemently disagrees, and keeps on wanting to go home. She does know what home she means,though she is a little vague as to where it is and has forgotten that not only was her behaviour putting her at risk, she was bored and lonely there as well. I understood that during the DoLS process someone was supposed to act as mum's advocate. I haven't been asked, and I'm not sure if I'd be the right person anyway as I totally agree that she can't cope on her own anymore. Mum is muttering about getting a solicitor, though I'm not quite sure from where. Have I got this all wrong, and every thing will be fine, or at a later date will someone say we didn't take mum's views into consideration?
