Has anyone had experience of AD patient being taken from their home under Section 2 to a mental clinic. Then, after 8 days taken off Section 2 and placed under a DoLS. The next step is a meeting with the clinic personnel/doctors but we have been told that Mum will be moved to a care home as she can no longer look after herself. After reading loads of posts on CHC and realising how very difficult this is and knowing that to get CHC a patient would have to be under Section 3, my question is:- If the authorities are saying that Mum must go into care and if they reject CHC, is it really possible that somebody who is "detained" against their will actually have to pay for the costs of their "detainment". This sounds most strange to me. The more I look at this the more confused I get. Further, not having lived in England for decades I have no idea how things work in my homeland. Many thanks for any comments.
