Grampy and I were having a discussion about social care today and we got to wondering about the following scenario.
You have a partner or relative who has Dementia, possibly also other serious health issues. They are in hospital and due to be discharged. BUT they cannot live alone or with you.
Can you be forced to take them home either with you or into another care situation or could you just walk away and wash your hands of the situation?
I know this is a moral and legal issue but we were just talking about legal implications not moral. ( This is just a hypothetical situation and I am not planning on dumping Grampy anywhere in case anyone is concerned for his welfare :-) )
Does anyone know what the legal standing is?
