Mum is undergoing 28 days of assessment and it will be some time before we know what will happen after that. She was receiving NHS CHC up until she was admitted to the assessment unit, but I am told that this has now ceased. If she is discharged after 28 days and the section 2 doesn't move to section 3 (when I believe the 117 rule, after care is placed, will she still be reassessed for NHS CHC? If they start to medicate and her behaviour ameliorates will there be any chance of funding (am thinking well-managed needs here). It is likeley that her previous emi nursing home won't accept her back and we shall need a challneging behaviour unit. What if there are no beds - highly possible. Could she stay on assessment unit until a bed comes up? Has anyone been through this process who could advise as to what to expect? Would really appreciate it - it is scary enough without having to worry about finances on top of everything. Having chosen a good Home for her, I now feel that she is like a homeless waif.
