Hello All, I am new to the forum and apologise if I have posted in the wrong place but I would really appreciate any advice people can offer. My dad, who has dementia, was recently admitted to hospital for a mental health assessment as he was misidentifying his wife and often becoming aggressive nod violent. He has been in hospital for 3 weeks and, today, I was told by the doctors that he will not be allowed to return home and, after another couple of weeks in hospital, he will be going to a care home. I assume that he went into hospital under section 2 but can anyone tell me whether this will automatically become section 3 after he has been in hospital for 28 days, and whether his care when he leaves hospital will be NHS funded? Thanks for any advice or information offered.
