Workers supporting people dealing with squalor and hoarding are often faced with questions around choice and capacity. CLCN are hosting ADACAS to provide their Link and Learn training session on supported decision making and provide an opportunity to discuss this approach in relation to squalor and hoarding.
The ADACAS Link and Learn project defines supported decision making as happening when one person gives another person the support they need to be engaged in decision making. It can support legal and day to day decision. A person may need support because their decision making capacity is impaired from a variety of factors.
There is a decision support role for people sharing their lives with a person who has impaired decision making. It offers a way to give support that enables the person with impaired capacity to live the life they would choose for themselves.
Come along and join the discussion on Thursday 18 February at 1.30pm- 3.30pm at Hughes Community Centre, Whittle St, Hughes.
