Decision making is something that we all deal with on a daily basis.
Our decision making relates to matters such as where we live, which religion we exercise, health care, education, employment, social contact and financial affairs just to mention a few. The exercise of choice in matters such as these is one of the ways in which we express our individuality.
When a person becomes incapable of managing his or her own affairs, especially the administration of his or her estate, it is imperative that someone be legally appointed to assist the person who has become incapable, (due to mental health, accidents etc.)
To be appointed as a curator one must obtain assistance from a legal representative to assist with an
application to the relevant court.
The appointed curator will step into the shoes of the person who lacks the mental capacity to make
decisions and/or mange his/her affairs and act in his/her best interest.
