ASSISTED DECISION-MAKING (CAPACITY) ACT 2015 (1)
The Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Act 2015 was signed by The President in December 2015. The object of the Act is to establish a modern framework to support decision making by vulnerable adults who have difficulty making decisions without assistance. Vulnerable adults may experience difficulties around decision making because of intellectual disability, acquired head injury or old age. The act overhauls capacity legislation which has been in place since the 19th century
