If you are not able to make a decision with all the help and support available, then a best interest decision must be made on your behalf.
What does best interest decision mean?
It means a decision that is best for you and not anyone else.
Who can make the best interest decision?
The person who is responsible for the decision is called the ‘decision maker’. This could be the carers who provide day-to-day care, or the professionals such as doctors, nurses or social workers.
