Supported decision making - alternative to elder guardianship

For many years now, and especially after the taking into force of the CRPD - Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, there has been much debate around the need to develop the Supportive Decision Making Model as an alternative to existing guardianship regimes.
However, in real life there has been relatively little actual experience in this field.
A new report from Israel describes a new model for such supported decision making model, which can be a good starting point for further development of such services.
Here is the link to the full report:
