Objective: To assess the legal capacity and guardianship proceedings in patients diagnosed with dementia. Methods: Ninety-seven patients diagnosed with dementia and seen at a tertiary hospital were evaluated. Results: Of these 97 patients, 60 (62%) were female. The mean age of the patients was 77.9 yearsen

The main diagnosis was Alzheimer's disease (73%): 16 patients were at a mild stage, eight at a moderate stage and 73 at an advanced stage of dementia. Only 28 patients had been legally declared incapable. Conclusion: The large numbers of patients at an advanced stage of dementia, and the relatively few patients legally declared incapable show that legal issues in dementia are problematic.en
