Re EU (Appointment of deputy)

Mental health – Court of Protection. EU was formally diagnosed as having dementia when he was hospitalised in August 2012. EU's sons had objected to an application by Suffolk County Council (the authority) to be appointed as his deputy for property and financial affairs. Having regard to all the circumstances, the Court of Protection was satisfied that it was in EU's best interests to appoint the authority to be his deputy for property and affairs and to dismiss his sons' objections. The factor of magnetic importance was EU's own wishes and preference that he would like the authority to manage his property and financial affairs.
