Lasting Power of Attorney

 

What is a Power of Attorney?

A legal document that allows someone to make decisions for you.  You must have the mental capacity to set up a power of attorney in the first place, and they won’t come into effect until your capacity has been deemed to be insufficient to make decisions.

There are two types of lasting power of attorney:

Property and Financial affairs lets someone manage all your financial affairs or act on your behalf if you’re no longer able to due to mental incapacity or in some cases, if you no longer want to make your own decisions.

Health and Welfare lets someone make decisions about your healthcare and welfare – including where you might like to live should you require long term care.  This document also allows the option to give instructions regarding life-sustaining treatment.
