Lasting Powers Of Attorney
Powers of Attorney – giving you the control
Helping You Make The Decisions
Should your mental capacity alter, you want reassurance that the right decisions will be taken on your behalf. Our Elder Law team can advise on what should be included in Lasting Powers of Attorney for you. Once set up, these LPAs enable people you trust to carry out your wishes. There are usually two categories – one to govern your finances and property and the other your health and welfare.
Financial powers might include the ability to make decisions about paying bills, managing income or overseeing the sale of property or assets. They might also include how to deal with the funds, according to your wishes.
Defining Plans for Your Health and Welfare
Health and welfare powers might include decisions as large as where you wish to live and whether you wish to be given life-sustaining treatment and as small as decisions regarding how your personal appearance is maintained. All your wishes can be taken into consideration.
