Lasting Powers of Attorney
We can also advise on, and help put in place, Lasting Powers of Attorney to cover both a person’s health/welfare and property/financial affairs, again ensuring that individuals’ wishes are respected should they lose capacity in the future. Without an LPA in place, responsibility could be assigned to someone not known to the family.
An LPA will ensure that the people you most trust will make important decisions on your behalf and while they are most often used to help organise the affairs of the elderly, LPAs can also be enacted should incapacity occur because of an accident or illness.
We can also assist with recording a Living Will, which will determine which medical procedures should be used in the event of a serious decline in your health.
