Mental Capacity Act 2005 – Alzheimer’s Society

The Mental Capacity Act covers important decision-making relating to an individual's property, financial affairs, and health and social care. It also applies to everyday decisions, such as personal care, what to wear and what to eat. It can help people with dementia, their carers and professionals to make decisions, both now and in the future. This factsheet explains what mental capacity is, outlines the key principles or rules of the Act, and looks at how it can be applied when planning for the future.
