IMCA involvement in accommodation decisions and care reviews

Key factors for best interests decisions

One part of the IMCA's role is to ensure that the person's views and wishes are central to best interests decisions. There are different factors which need to be balanced when making these decisions. These include the opportunity for the person to maintain important relationships, how well the person will manage any move, and the cost of different service options. The IMCA role also involves finding out what alternative options there might be.
