As the Talisman Foundation is not a custodial care facility, the type of residents admitted are of a medium to high functioning level with all the rights and responsibilities which this entails.

The facility does not take residents who are in acute phases of their illness, which necessitates them having their rights and responsibilities temporarily removed. It is understood therefore that, barring a legal placement as an assisted or involuntary user, no person admitted to the Talisman Foundation as a resident is incapable of making their own decisions, or does not have the capacity to make an informed decision with regards to their own well being.
