Lasting Power of Attorney is a document that provides the power for nominated people – known as attorneys - to make serious decisions, when the time comes, on your health and welfare.
This might involve picking a medical care pathway, deciding on a care home, or having the final say on life-sustaining treatment.
An LPA can also provide the legal power of decision on financial matters if you a reach a point where you can’t make those decisions yourself.
Rebecca from the Wills and Probate team was fantastic, she explained complicated Power of Attorney information to my mother very sensitively. She made a complicated process very easy for everyone involved. Kind, thoughtful and professional.
