‘Grandpa on a Skateboard’ is the first practical book for Health and Legal professionals, that simplifies and explains the assessment process. This is done by the use of real life case studies and by providing clear, jargon free guidance. It demystifies the assessment process and answers questions that other literature on the topic, does not address.
Written by our founder and Managing Director; Tim Farmer. Tim has been described as ‘The Guru’ of mental capacity by Tom Blackburn from Compass Law and has assessed thousands of people both here in the UK and abroad. This is his first published book after being published in the STEP journal with his article ''How robust is your capacity assessment?''.
This book is designed to give you the confidence and the ability to conduct robust assessments whilst at the same time enabling you to provide optimum outcome for those under your charge.
It also aims for you to achieve these goals;
⦁ Set the threshold of understanding which is necessary for every assessment
⦁ Clearly define seemingly ambiguous phrases such as ‘unwise decisions’ and ‘the functional test’
⦁ Recording your assessments ensuring it stands up to legal scrutiny
