Keywords: Estate Planning, Power Of Attorney, Dementia

A thorough, objective, and respectful assessment of an adult's decision making capacity. Usually as a necessary part of the process for an application for guardianship or trusteeship, or to enact a Personal Directive or Enduring Power of Attorney.

Occupational Therapists are uniquely trained and adept at assessing from both a functional and cognitive perspective.

Paul Huget, BScOT has been trained and authorized by the Office of the Public Guardian to provide these specialized assessments under the Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act (AGTA), and has been doing so since the Act was first introduced in 2009.

Capacity Assessments

A Capacity Assessment Report (CAR) is required for all new applications or reviews of Guardianship and Trusteeship. Only those designated by the Public Guardian may assess and provide these reports to the applicants.  A CAR may also be required in challenging a previous assessment, in enacting a personal directive or enduring power of attorney, or in proving that ones' capacity to make decisions is retained if in doubt for any reason.
