It wont happen to me - Lasting Power of Attorney

Back to News

Anyone can become physically or mentally incapable as a result of illness or accident regardless of how old they are. Do you know what happens if you are unable to make decisions for yourself in respect of your finances and/or health and welfare.

“Anyone can become physically or mentally incapable as a result of illness or accident regardless of how old they are”

If you do not have a Lasting Power of Attorney a loved one would have to make an application to the Court of Protection which will be time-consuming, complicated and costly.

This can all be avoided by having a Lasting Power of Attorney in place. A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document appointing a loved one or other to make decision on your behalf when you are no longer able to. That person will be able to manage your finances, such as paying bills and also make decisions about your health and welfare.

“You must make a Lasting Power of Attorney whilst you are still capable of making decisions for yourself”

You should urgently make a Last Power of Attorney if you have been diagnosed with, or think you might develop, an illness which might prevent you from making decisions for yourself at some time in the future, such as dementia. You must make a Lasting Power of Attorney whilst you are still capable of making decisions for yourself.
