Lasting Power of Attorney
Something your loved one may need to think about is putting legal protections in place, such as a Lasting Power of Attorney that will enable you to make decisions about finances, care or where someone lives on your loved ones behalf should they lose the ability to make those decisions themselves.
If the illness progresses quickly or if your loved one is no longer able to make decisions themselves, we can help you to get Deputyships set up for both Health and Welfare and Property and Finances. This will allow you, once appointed as their Deputy, to make decisions on their behalf.
This is a big responsibility though and you will need to back up the decisions you make to the Court of Protection if asked and report annually on the financial decisions you make.
