What is incapacity?

Excellence is our standard.

Incapacity concerns adult individuals who are unable to make their own decisions to some degree due to dementia, mental illness, alcohol or drug addiction, closed head injuries, ALS, stroke, or other physical or mental condition that renders the person unable to make or communicate informed decisions.

Some of these conditions create partial incapacity, such as the early stages of dementia. Other conditions can be reversed with medication or proper treatment, such as bi-polar disorder or addiction. Yet still, some of these conditions are sudden and irreversible, such as a stroke or closed head trauma from an injury.

In Michigan, the Estates and Protected Individuals Code (EPIC) governs such cases. By contrast, the mental health code governs cases for individuals suffering from developmental disabilities. In Indiana, the term “incapacity” encompasses both the foregoing instances plus individuals who suffer from developmental disabilities.
