Challenges around AWI within a care setting


In this class Sandra and Margaret Ann Mcausland – an Advanced Senior Support Worker at Wallacetown Gardens in Ayr – discuss some of the challenges around AWI within a care setting.

Wallacetown Gardens is a care service established in 2017 which caters to a range of complex needs for 18 to 65-year-olds. The supported living unit is made up of people with continuing mental health conditions and with long-term degenerative conditions such as Huntingtons, M.S., and Parkinsons Disease.

Key themes

  • Working with a guardian or attorney
  • Dealing with concerns about the way a guardian, or attorney, is using their powers
  • Supporting people with fluctuating capacity
  • Acting on suspicions of financial mismanagement
