Dad has been in a home for dementia for about a year. He was wandering and being brought back to the family home by the police. He is 91. I have P.O.A. He has been assessed and has an annual Deprivation of Liberty in place. He has had an Advocate assigned to him, who has visited him twice and because he says he wants to leave to see his mother or someone else and gets agitated, I have been told he has a 'Human Right' to appeal the D.O.L. and has an entitlement to legal aid and a solicitor to represent him. Anyone else had this? I think it is a total waste of public money and has put the family in turmoil.
