Hearing to decide if the P should be given the Covid-19 vaccine against her will.
The 86 year old P has a diagnosis of dementia, and is objecting to her placement in the care home, believing that she still lives with her (long deceased) parents, and needs to return to their home and resume working at the job she held in her youth. She has no recollection of the property she owns, or of the majority of her life-story. She was also objecting to being vaccinated against Covid-19.
The court ruled that it was not in her best interest to be vaccinated against her will and rejected the well meant suggestion of a family member to trick her into thinking her long dead father wanted her to have it.
