Property Sale

Following Care Home Move

If you are a Deputy or an Attorney deciding to sell a property following an individuals move into residential or nursing care you need to be able to answer the specific question of whether there is a possibility the individual could return home. 

We can provide all of the relevant information and evidence to support you in your decision making.



1. Adult Social Care Needs Assessment

We can complete a Care Act (2014) needs assessment to identify the person's strengths and their care needs; this can allow us to determine whether a person's needs are best met in a care home or their own home and, on the scale of probability, identify if this is likely to change in the future. 

2. A Decision Specific Mental Capacity Assessment

To complement this assessment, we can also complete a Mental Capacity Assessment for the specific decisions on whether the individual can decide on their residency and care. 

3. A Best Interest-Checklist

The best interest checklist ensures any decisions being made are compliant with the principles of the Mental Capacity Act (2005) and evidence the decision-making process. 

All of this information can support you to ensure your decisions are evidence-based and well documented. 



Our assessments are person-centred and therapeutic in nature, ensuring every practicable step is taken in supporting you in your decision making.
