The Mental Capacity Act 2005

The mental Capacity Act 2005 represents a major advance in that it provides a comprehensive statutory framework for assisting those lacking capacity, for example, those with dementia, learning disability, mental health problems or stroke and head injuries, to make decisions for themselves wherever possible and for proper decisions to be made by others when that is not possible. However, to be successful the framework has to be "accompanied by changes in attitude which recognise the rights of those lacking capacity and the need to instil respect and good practice in dealing with them". (Joint Committee)
