As you, or someone you love gets older, you should consider setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney. No one likes to think of what the future may hold, and of either themselves or a loved one becoming incapable but planning for the future early on can provide peace of mind just in case.
Many people assume their next of kin will automatically be able to assist if they are unable to deal with matters themselves. This is not the case and failing to address this early on can leave loved ones in a difficult position.
A power of attorney ensures that someone of your choosing who you trust is able to look after your affairs and manage them for you in the future if you are not able to.
How will this benefit me now?
Making a power of attorney now gives you the ability to control your future whatever happens.
It is often believed powers of attorney are something to be looked at once someone has become incapable but at that point it is too late.
If you or someone close to you loses capacity and there is no power of attorney in place then loved ones will be faced with an expensive and time consuming application to the Court of Protection to enable matters to be dealt with. You will have no control over who looks after your affairs for you.
Setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney now allows you to plan in advance:
- The decisions that you want to be made on your behalf if you lose capacity to make them yourself
- The people you want to make these decisions
- How you want the people to make these decisions
