"In view of all the concerns raised in SW's review and his reassessment, I recommend that a formal capacity assessment is made with regard to SW's ability to decide for himself where he should live. I recommend that, in the event of him lacking capacity, a best interests meeting will need to occur which will include [the parents]. The best interests meeting will occur on the basis that from the assessment it appears that Hesley is no longer able to fully meet SW's needs and does not represent an effective or long term provision for him. I recommend that a referral be made for advocacy as soon as possible."

"Chair records the decision. BW to show [the parents] some possible properties and services for SW to move to."
