Model agreements, also known as Section 7 agreements, allow a representative to make minor and important decisions in the area of adult health, as well as decisions related to the routine management of adult financial affairs. Typical agreements do not require a large adult ability to sign and formalize the document and are limited in the financial and health care decisions a representative can make. When an adult becomes incapacitated and has not signed a replacement agreement, some health care decisions may continue to be made by a temporary alternative decision made by the Health Care (Consent) Act and the Care Facility (admission).
