Hi all, after some advice please. My Mum (74) has Alzheimer's and Vascular dementia. In Sept 2014 she went into a respite home to give my Dad a break as up until then he had been caring for her at home (He's 81). After 2 days she broke out of the home and was restrained by police, handcuffed and taken to hospital where she was sectioned under sect 2 and then sect 3 of the MHA. She remained in the secure ward of the hospital, where her behaviour worsened, before plateauing out sometime before Xmas. She began refusing food/fluids and lost a lot of weight. Jan 17th we were told she was now on Deprivation of Liberty (DOL). Jan 19th she had a fall. She was taken to A&E to check she had not broken anything. Initially she had a member of staff with her, but when she was admitted onto a general ward, this was withdrawn. 10 days later and after numerous scans and xrays we were told yesterday that she was now 'medically fit' to be discharged. She has not been out of bed for 10days, despite being fully mobile before. We were told that the hospital Social care team would contact us about her discharge, but so far no one has called. The Dementia ward she had been on have said she will not return there unless the hosp deem her in need of mental health care, so I assume she will now have to go to a nursing home. She can no longer walk unaided, attend to any personal needs, is doubly incontinent, cannot feed herself, and is unresponsive at the best of times. Her communication is minimal, and limited to garbled talk of getting out and going home. My question is, will she still be eligible for S117 aftercare having been sectioned, or will the fact that she is now in a general hospital ward mean that she wont? Many thanks for any help.
