Deprivation of Liberty Query

Hi, can anyone help, it may seems a silly question but can a person with a Dol’s on them leave a carehome for the day under the supervision of a capable relative?

Hi Laura,

Have a read here Use of DoLS in care and nursing homes | SCIE

DoLS and the experience of people who use services

Applying the Safeguards should not be seen as a last resort for ‘very difficult residents’. The Safeguards should be part of a continuum of positive actions taken by care home managers and staff to address the quality of experience in a care or nursing home. > Managers will review and promote access > to activities provided in the home, access to the garden or the local shop, to public facilities a> nd to family outings or visits.

Note, if the DOLS is in relation to keeping safe during Covid, then that is a different matter.
