Decision Specific Assessments
What decisions can it cover?
As expert mental capacity assessors, we’re experienced in assessing individuals for any decision where there’s a particular concern. For example, their capacity to:
Marry or divorce
Choose where they live
Create a Trust
Act as a Trustee
Any other decision
What the law says
The Mental Capacity Act (2005) states that the assessment of capacity should be decision-specific. This means the assessment of capacity must be about the particular decision that has to be made at a particular time and is not about a range of decisions.
Financial Decision Tracker
Not only does our assessment include a report evidencing your capacity but where appropriate we also include a financial decision tracker at no additional cost.
Montreal Cognitive Assessment
The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) is a brief, 30-question test that helps healthcare professionals detect cognitive impairments early on.
The MoCA can be beneficial in situations such as testamentary capacity where a client's will is likely to be contested, the MoCA can provide evidence, on the day, that there was no identifiable impairment of the mind or brain.
