Assessing Mental Capacity Online During Covid 19


I hope you are well and staying safe? These are difficult times we are facing but I wanted to reassure you that I am still able to carry out Mental Capacity Assessments during the Covid 19 Pandemic through the use of technology.

We are able to give families and carers peace of mind that these important assessments won’t just stop until the lockdown has been removed.  We are able to use technology such as Zoom, Facetime, Skype to carry out the assessment where applicable and will work in the best interests of our clients.

We have over 20 years experience working in the NHS, so take every precaution to ensure the safety and well being of our clients and can talk families and careers through all the necessary steps to ensure that everyone is listened to.  Through technology, we are still able to look for non-verbal communication and can ask a wealth of questions to establish how the environment is affecting behaviour

We also understand the importance of performing an accurate assessment of mental capacity around important decisions. If the wrong assessment is made it can have serious consequences for the person and everyone. With this in mind, if the online technology route is inappropriate, we will assess the circumstances and work together to find solutions that are right for everyone.

You may have a number of questions concerning Mental Capacity and Covid -19 and we are only a phone call away and happy to share our knowledge and expertise. Please do not hesitate to contact me on 07734 393918 or email
