Then its time to get your Lasting Power of Attorneys made while you still can, once those marbles are lost its too late, you will have invited The Court of Protection and Social Services to make decisions on your behalf.

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney? In effect it is the only legal document that enables you to appoint a person or people that you trust the most to look after your affairs.

There are 2 Lasting Power of Attorneys - Property and Financial Affairs and Health and Welfare

Who would you prefer to make decisions on your behalf when it comes to things like:

  • Where you live, who visits you and the type of care you receive?
  • Giving or refusing consent to particular types of health care and medical treatment?
  • Day-to-day things, like your diet, dress, or daily routine?
  • Life-sustaining treatment?
  • Your property and financial affairs?
  • Running your bank and savings accounts?
  • Making or selling investments?
  • Selling your property?
  • How your money is spent?

Please note that relatives are not automatically entitled to make financial or health and welfare decisions if a loved one lacks capacity. The Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney provides the family with input into the care of their loved one towards the end of their life.

So which do you prefer?

The people of your choice or The Court of Protection?

Also, perhaps a good time to make a Will too, or update your existing one?
