Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council delivered a Self-Neglect and Applying the Mental Capacity Act webinar on Wednesday 19th May.

We all recognise how challenging it is work with people who self-neglect. Our practice is improving but have we got it right for people yet? Safeguarding Adult Reviews suggest we haven’t. IT IS TIME TO MOVE AWAY FROM “THIS IS A LIFESTYLE CHOICE”. 

This webinar, which will be of interest to practitioners and professionals from health and social care - social workers, nurses, care workers and providers, covered: 

  • National leaning from Safeguarding Adult Reviews about self-neglect 
  • The legal framework  
  • Mrs M’s story 
  • What a good mental capacity assessment looks like
