Further decision following a court ruling that the P should not leave the care home to live with his daughter.
The P has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and is also deaf but communicates through a "communication board". He currently resides in a care home. At an earlier hearing the court was unable to accede to an application, made by the P's daughter and litigation friend, for a declaration that it was in his best interests to return home and in to her care. However, because of the covid-19 crisis, family members have not been able to visit him, his daughter communicating outside the window of the care home. This deprivation of contact with his family is thought to have triggered a depression in the P.
The court ruled that it was in the best interests of the P to live with his daughter.
