Help with decision making (Power of Attorney)

Power of Attorney

If the person you look after lacks the capacity to make decisions about their care (because of a learning disability, head injury, dementia etc.) the Council will discuss their needs with the person/people legally allowed to make welfare and/or financial decisions for them because they have a ‘Lasting Power of Attorney’ or have been appointed by the Court of Protection.
