Your Power of Attorney is a legal tool that allows you to appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf. It gives them the authority to make the big decisions if you lack mental capacity at some point in the future. Or, if you no longer wish to make those decisions for yourself. In a Power of Attorney, you’re known as the ‘donor’. The trusted people you choose to make the decisions are called ‘attorneys’.
With 1 in 14* People over the age of 65 now suffering from Dementia, its good to have a plan. (*alzheimers.org.uk,2104.) thats why putting your Finance & Property and Health & Welfare Power of Attorneys in place NOW will help.
More of us become unable to manage our affairs these days. Without a Power of Attorney your family may need to go to court. This can cause lots of hassle, delays and expense. Currently there are 850,000 people in the UK living with Dementia. It’s estimated that by 2025 this will exceed over a million (source: Alzheimer’s Research UK, 2015)
