This SCIE Social Care TV video concerns a woman called Ada (played by an actress) who has dementia and is living alone at home.

Due to concerns about her safety, a MCA (Mental Capacity Act) assessment is carried out to see if she needs to move into residential care.

The clip demonstrates the importance of good communication skills and the way in which an assessment should empower the person with dementia.
