Many people ask us what a Power of Attorney is. A Lasting Power of Attorney gives someone you trust the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf, if either you’re unable to in the future or you no longer wish to make decisions for yourself.

There are two types of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA)

Lasting Powers of Attorney for Financial Decisions

Once the LPA has been registered with the Office of the Public Guardian  your Attorney can deal with your finances and your property. This Lasting Power of Attorney can include restrictions on how your finances and property can be dealt with. It can also contain preferences and instructions  to enable your Attorney to consider your wishes. An LPA is therefore an important document to have.

Lasting Powers of Attorney for Health and Care Decisions

An LPA allows  your Attorney to make decisions regarding your welfare and care. You can give your Attorney the authority to make decisions about life sustaining treatment. For the LPA  to be legally valid it must therefore be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.  Unlike the Financial Decisions Lasting Power of Attorney, authority to deal with your affairs can only be exercised if you are losing or have lost your capacity. The document will allow you to restrict the areas that you wish your attorney to deal with.  It can also allow you to provide guidance to your attorney in respect of your end of life care.

An LPA allows those who love and care for you to be able to look after you in a way that you need and deserve.
