- Some insurers provide critical illness plans that protect both physical and mental health. The policies may cover conditions such as bipolar condition, major depressive disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder, and more.
- Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS)
There may come a time when your loved one no longer has the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves, due to health conditions or other circumstances – where they lose their mental capacity and are no longer able to tell you what they want. It is therefore important to understand their care preferences and make arrangements early.
