    The role of homecare providers increasingly extends to accompanying service users outside the home or on holiday, important activities to enhance well-being, maintain independence and reduce social isolation. UKHCA's revised factsheet: "Accompanying service users on outings and holidays" describes some of the issues homecare providers need to consider and sources of further advice.

    The Mental Capacity Act 2005 introduced new rights in England and Wales from 2007 for people who may have problems making decisions (“mental capacity”) as well as responsibilities for people who look after someone who may have mental capacity issues.

    This guidance, by UKHCA and our recommended solicitors Anthony Collins LLP, complements government guidance and other official materials on the Mental Capacity Act 2005, and provides an overview of the Act and the systems and organisations that support it. The guidance, revised in September 2017, makes practical suggestions on how to adopt mental capacity assessments into homecare practice and, importantly, record 'best interests' decisions (see accompanying templates). There is also a new section on deprivation of liberty.
