A guide for carers who are concerned that the person they care for is unable to take action or make some or all decisions in relation to their finances, personal welfare or health, due to a mental disability or severe communications difficulties, such as a stroke. The guide covers information on how the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 can help. It also explains the purpose of guardianship and intervention orders and outlines the considerations to make before taking forward an application for a guardianship or intervention order. The guide also describes how to make an application, the costs involved and what the carer should do once appointed.
