Mental incapacity: issues in supported housing
The mental capacity of a resident of supported housing may become an issue – for instance, is Jack able to refuse to be assessed for services, or is Jill able to choose not to eat? In this FREE 8 page briefing, Dr Helen Carr of Kent University Law School sets out the law relating to good practice when working with clients who have mental capacity issues. Dr Carr looks at how the Mental Capacity Act works, assessing capacity under the Act, acting in someone’s best interests and under what circumstances a mentally incapacitated person may lawfully be restrained.
Dr Carr is co-author with Professor Caroline Hunter of Lemos&Crane’s Supported Housing eLearning.
