I think it is really variable - after the assessment period of 72 hours, they should be able to give a better idea of timescales. I went as a voluntary patient too and was a patient for about 4 weeks, but the last week of that I was at home, just hadn't been discharged so still had the option of hospital if things didn't improve once I was home.

I hope your daughter will get the help she needs, and that you are able to manage arrangements for her son.
