Adults may need different levels of personal decision-making support. Different options are available to help the adult remain as independent as possible:
- Supported decision-making – An adult with capacity can choose a trusted person to assist them with accessing information and communicating their decisions.
- Specific decision-making – A decision for an adult who has lost the capacity to make health care and residential facility placement decisions.
- Co-decision-making – Sharing decision-making with an adult who requires some assistance because of a loss of capacity but can make decisions with support.
- Co-decision-making review – The court order needs to be reviewed if it is required by the court, or if a change needs to be made to the order.
- Adult guardianship – Decisions are made on behalf of an adult who does not have capacity.
- Adult guardianship review – The court order needs to be reviewed if it is required by the court, or if a change needs to be made to the order.
