My husband is in long term care under a best interest order.

Customer Question

My husband is in long term care under a best interest order. He has frontotemple demencia, sorry if spelt wrong.  I am not happy with the level of care he is receiving, can I choose another home for him. Also his sisters have come on the scene and are trying to take him to another home in their home town. Can he be forced to go by social services. and what are my rights. We love each other very much and this would be heartbreaking for both of us. Marie

PS I am in the UK
