Lack of Mental Capacity

We appreciate that it can be extremely difficult for everybody concerned when a loved one or person close to you is not able to make decisions for themselves. The legal term for this is “Lack of Mental Capacity”, and people can lose mental capacity in a number of ways;

  • Following a stroke or brain injury
  • As a result of a mental health problem
  • As a result of Dementia
  • As a result of a learning disability
  • As a result of an illness or the treatment for it
  • As a result of substance or alcohol misuse.
