Abstract:     
This paper reviews the unmet need for legal services for people acting as carers of people with impaired mental capacity, including the legal needs of older carers. It examines private and public planning options, such as wills and estate planning, powers of attorney, trusts and adult guardianship - as ways of addressing the succession planning and service access needs of carers of people with impaired mental capacity. It argues that greater resourcing and professional/community education is required if sound planning is to be achieved for the future.
