What a conundrum.
I can see why this lady's family might want to spend time with her at her very great age, and why they are concerned at curtailed visiting for at least a month.
I am also puzzled why the home is deemed to be legally in charge of this woman - they have a legal obligation to provide good care for her while she is there, but do they have the obligation to prevent her family choosing to look after her at home? I am not entirely sure; and I worked in this field for many years.
I can understand they might involve the local authority social services if they have reason to believe that she would be poorly cared for elsewhere - she would be classed as a vulnerable adult.
The use of the police and an arrest (however brief) seems very heavy handed. A call to SSD to get someone to check the home circumstances would seem to be a better option.
