The court had to consider capacity in relation to residence, treatment and care where the P suffered a personality disorder and a number of physical ailments including diabetes.
The P was accommodated in a care home but was adamant that she should be allowed to return to her own home despite having to be cared for by a number of professionals because of her self-neglect and not taking medication.
