There is provision in Cayman Islands law for the appointment of legal guardians for persons who lack capacity to deal with their own affairs. The procedure is laid down in the Mental Capacity Law (2013 Revision) and the Grand Court Law (2015 Revision).
A power of attorney in the Cayman Islands is not capable of surviving the incapacity of the donor of the power. The court, however, may recognise an enduring or lasting power of attorney which is made and properly takes effect in another jurisdiction.
