Abstract

Extract:

The carers of people with impaired capacity, whether caused by developmental disability, acquired brain injury, chronic mental illness, or conditions such as dementia, frequently want to make plans for a future situation when they are no longer able to care for themselves or their loved ones. In an ageing population, demand for such services is rising.
