Making a Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) allows you to choose and appoint a specific person or people who will control your affairs should you become unable or unwilling to do so.
An LPA becomes particularly relevant when there is a degenerative disease either mental or physical. An LPA provides assurance that later decisions will be made by people you trust.We will advise you on the appropriate type of LPA and, where necessary, complete the process for you.
There are two types of LPA:
A Health and Welfare LPA
This is used when you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself and enables your appointed person/s to make decisions about your daily care and routine, any medical care, including life- sustaining treatment and finally moving into a care home.
A Property and Financial Affairs LPA
This can be used immediately with your permission. It enables your appointed person/s to make decisions about your money and property, including paying bills and selling your property.
