Draft Charging Policy for Social Care Services

People who lack capacity

19. People who lack capacity

Where a person lacks mental capacity Carmarthenshire will communicate and/or work with a person that has the legal authority to make financial decisions on behalf of the person with care and support needs. Where such legal authority does not exist, then wherever possible the Authority will engage with family members. In all cases Carmarthenshire will apply the principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the code of practice.
