Mental Incapacity and the Court of Protection

Dealing with your affairs if you lose mental capacity might have to involve the Court, but whatever your circumstances, planning ahead can minimise problems.

At Dunn & Baker Solicitors, we understand the issues that can arise through a loss of mental capacity. We work hard to support you, your family and carers to ensure that your rights are protected.

If you or a loved one begins to become confused, or is diagnosed with dementia, a legal expert can help you understand your rights and provide the necessary support. We can help with Powers of Attorney for your care, as well as managing your money. Just because a person begins to be confused or has a dementia diagnosis, it may not be too late to put arrangements in place but it is certainly worth seeking advice early. If an application to the Court of Protection is needed, we can guide you through the process and assist with drafting the appropriate Court documents.

Our knowledgeable and approachable legal experts are on hand to discuss any aspect of mental incapacity. If you can’t get to our offices, we can usually arrange to visit you – either in hospital, a care home or elsewhere.
