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 Power of Attorney document also includes safeguards to protect your interests. You can trust Poole Alcock to advise you or your relatives on the best way to use this important document to plan for the future.
