Is your client’s home safe?
The Mental Capacity Code of Practice obliges Deputies and Professional Attorneys to act in their client’s best interests and to promote the client’s rights and freedom of actions and act in the least restrictive manner. These principles frequently come into play when choosing a care setting for a client.
Very often clients are able to continue living well in their own homes, but with a few adaptations to ensure the property remains suitable and safe for their care needs. People are frequently moved into care prematurely, which can have a detrimental effect on not only their health and well being but on their financial resources.
Our Social workers are able to conduct property suitability assessments, to provide you with the reassurance that your client is safe and living well at home. We will complete a checklist for your file and provide recommendations where necessary.
