Where a person becomes mentally incapable of managing their affairs The Mental Capacity Act 2005 provides the framework to protect such people. It is supported by a Code of Practice that provides guidance to all those who care for and make decisions on behalf of those who lack capacity. The lack of capacity could be the result of a sudden illness, accident or old age but whatever the reason it often produces immediate practical concerns, as well as emotional upheaval for those nearest and dearest to the person affected.
