Police investigation of alleged sexual assault on 76 year old woman at Campbeltown’s Auchinlee Care Home

The Police Service for Scotland and the Care Inspectorate are concerned in investigation an incident at the privately owned Auchinlee Care Home at High Askomil in Campbeltown in Kintyre.

The residential care home specifically for older people,has spectacular views over Campbeltown Loch.

Police were called to the home in late January, on Tuesday 26th, following an alleged sexual assault on a 76 year old woman resident by an 82 year old man.

The facts of the incident are not yet known but the age of the alleged offender would not indicate the he was on the staff of the establishment.

A common feature of life in care homes for the elderly suffering from dementia is various expressions of libido unhsmpered by the normal social codes of behaviour.

The investigation will obviously be concerned with the circumstances in which such an alleged assault took place, since the alleged offender is unlikely to be capable of being held responsible.

    • The Nitro Circus event at The Hydro announced the bike passengers as audience volunteers.
      And anyone who has visited in care homes or similar places caring for those with forms of dementia or limited mental capacity is perfectly familiar with manifestations of less restrained libido than is the social norm.
      This does not in any way mean that everyone suffering from dementia evinces this sort of behaviour, ever; but in any random grouping like the residents in any such care home, there will regularly be those who do.
      This is a simple fact and not a judgement of any kind – nor did the article imply any covert judgement.
      The point remains clear – that overtly sexual expression is to be expected at times in random groups of this kind and such establishments will have coping strategies in place.
