Not only should people with intellectual impairment be allowed to make choices and take risks, they should actively be encouraged to do so. Like the growing child, it is only by having such experiences, and making mistakes, that they will learn how to do it better in the future. Excessive protection of people with intellectual impairment contravenes both the Human Rights Act and the Mental Capacity Act, by depriving them of certain basic choices and freedoms. On the other hand, as carers or professionals, we do have a duty of care, and this must also be taken into account.
In addition, many services remain under-staffed and personnel are stressed. This does not encourage creative problem solving. If people with intellectual impairment are to improve their quality of life, and be allowed to experience ‘real life’ with all its attendant hazards and risks, carers and other professionals need to have the time and resources to do their jobs properly. There need to be enough staff to be able to give people one-to-one attention, if that is what is necessary for them to have such choices, and the role, pay and level of qualification of such staff may need to be reviewed.
Recent legislation means that they can no longer be denied such rights, unless there is very good reason to do so. Assessing and managing risk inevitably raises questions about the client’s ability to consent, and the extent to which they have the capacity to make their own choices and decisions. However, it is also important to balance the responsibility for a duty of care against the need to allow an individual as much freedom as possible. In assessing risk, it is essential that an assessment of mental capacity is undertaken in order to decide on the best and safest course of action.
