The prospect of coping with a disability, failing mental health or the need for nursing home care is a sobering one. It can be a double blow for those who have failed to make their wishes known. Resolving these issues when you are already frail and vulnerable is complex and an can take an emotional toll on your loved ones.
If you would rather focus upon enjoying life now, with peace of mind from knowing you have made your wishes regarding your personal welfare clear, one of the best ways is to prepare a Lasting Power of Attorney. If you have an elderly relative who is beginning to suffer from lack of memory and confusion, it is important to talk to them about making a Lasting Power of Attorney as soon as possible.
A Lasting Power of Attorney is a straightforward legal document authorising someone you trust to make decisions and act on your behalf in the future if you are unable to. The person you choose can be a friend, relative, or trusted advisor such as your solicitor at Poole Alcock

The process from beginning to end was professional and well explained throughout. We felt confident to proceed with the process following Andrew’s advice. Thank you.
Claire looked after us so well, she put everything in order for us and now we can move on into old age with no worries about the family being looked after. So once again a big thank you Claire.
My wife and I cannot thank Poole Alcock enough for the service they have provided to my parents in the past 40 years and recently to my wife and myself. Charles Smalley has gone above and beyond expectations.
Pleased with the level of understanding of my needs, while showing a high level of humanity and professionalism.
All staff were very respectful to my feelings at what was a very difficult time.
Poole Alcock, especially Claire, were so easy to talk to. After our first visit they took away all of our worries and concerns about my will. They spoke at my level, the explanations and options were clear and the experience of writing my will was actually a nice one.
