Accident or Alzheimer’s,
who will look after your interests?

 

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a formal arrangement in which, while you have capacity, you give another person the authority to act or make decisions in your name, in case circumstances arise in which you lose the capacity to make those decisions for yourself.

This authority can relate to:

  • your property and affairs in general or in specific matters
  • your personal welfare in general or in specific matters including the power to agree or refuse life-sustaining treatment on your behalf

Our specialist lawyers can prepare and register Lasting Powers of Attorney for you and explain how your rights will be protected by the Court of Protection and the Office of the Public Guardian. We often do this alongside drawing up Advance Decisions, also know as a living will.
