Power of Attorney for Personal Care
Who decides that I am mentally incapable of making decisions about a long-term care facility?
Someone called an "evaluator" decides whether you are capable of making your own decisions about entering a long-term care facility. An evaluator must be a nurse, doctor, psychologist, occupational therapist, social worker, physiotherapist, speech language therapist, dietician, or audiologist.
Your attorney cannot make these decisions for you unless an evaluator finds that you are incapable of making them yourself.
