Protective Supervision for Vulnerable People
Protective supervision is a legal mechanism that protects people who have become vulnerable because of their incapacity. Protective supervision ensures that the property of these people is taken care of and that they can exercise their rights.
Protective supervision comes into play when a person needs protection and she has not made a protection mandate (used to be called “mandate in case of incapacity”), or this mandate is incomplete.
