Hi The care home I had lined up still has a room. My brother even went to see it and says it's lovely, in a beautiful location. The Social Care contact person has written to us saying that after speaking to her manager, they have no other option than to place Mum temporarily in a care home in their county. I wrote to my brother saying this seems to be getting urgent and I don't want the council putting Mum just anywhere (and certainly not in a place like my Dad was which was under police investigation because of suspicious deaths.). My brother's reply was that everybody (sorry, I don't know who "everybody" is) is telling him not to be rushed and that the council has an obligation to care for Mum and that he has told them that they should not move her without consulting the family. But the council needs the room in the mental clinic and they told us that Mum is now 4 weeks overdue. She doesn't need to be in the mental clinic. My point is that I don't know if a council can move Mum out or not without contacting us and getting our go ahead. I feel that my brother can't keep sitting on the fence. Somebody in need, needs Mum's room and Mum shouldn't be there.And we all know that moving Alhzeimer's patients is not recommended. Who's in the right here? The council or my brother?
