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.
