The mandate given in anticipation of incapacity
This mandate allows you to designate one or more persons to take care of you and administer your property from the moment the court declares you unfit.
It can be very difficult to determine whether a person is unfit. Feelings of denial, sadness and confusion can complicate the assessment of the situation. The relatives of a person may have different opinions and reservations, not to mention the concerned person. To have the net heart, and determine whether the person really needs protection, we can evaluate by professionals the ability of the person. This assessment is necessary for the opening of a protection system or the approval of a mandate in anticipation of incapacity. The assessment of incapacity takes place in two parts:
The medical evaluation
The evaluation is performed by a medical doctor and focuses on the health of the person. The doctor can identify the conditions, diseases and symptoms that may affect the ability of the person. This evaluation will also address the degree of incapacity.
The psychosocial evaluation
The psychosocial evaluation is usually made by a social worker that works in the health care system or in private practice. This assessment is used to determine the degree of autonomy of the individual and the need for protection. The professional will also seek to establish the possibility of taking responsibility for the person by relatives or by the Public Curator. Experienced professionals must complete a form of evaluation that records this information and indicates the degree of incapacity (partial or total) and the duration of the latter (permanent or temporary). They also state on the need for protection of the person.
