You are a tutorship council
You were appointed by the court, on the recommendation of a meeting of the family (relatives or friends) of the person under tutorship or curatorship.
In all your actions, you should be guided by the following principles:
An incapacitated person is still a fully-fledged citizen; anyone intervening with them or on their behalf must act in their interests, respecting their rights, autonomy and privacy.
Whenever possible, the protected person should be consulted about decisions affecting them; at the very least, they should be informed. If care is proposed for them, they have to consent to it, and their capacity to consent should be verified.
