A Lasting Power of Attorney can help in these situations - but also in other circumstances such as being abroad for a lengthy period of time - by giving someone else (the Attorney) the authority to make decisions on your behalf.
The two different types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) are:
- Property and Financial Affairs LPA. This gives your Attorney the authority to make decisions about the management of your property and financial affairs
- Health and Welfare LPA. This gives your Attorney the authority to make decisions about your personal healthcare and welfare, to include consenting to or refusing life-sustaining treatment
You may also wish to consider how you can protect your assets from Care Home Fees.
To make a Will or a Lasting Power of Attorney, you can choose from the following:
