Where a person is unable to make decisions about how they are treated and cared for someone else needs to be appointed to make these decisions on their behalf.
Decisions made as to the care and treatment of an incapacitated person are not always correct. Where there is concern as to neglect or mistreatment, family or friends may seek to intervene through the courts.
Practical decisions as to the treatment of an individual must take account of religious, cultural and family traditions.
