Power Of Attorney
Power of Attorney
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets you appoint people (known as ‘attorneys’) to make decisions on your behalf. It could be used if you became unable to make your own decisions. There are 2 types of lasting power of attorney:
- Health and Welfare
- Property and Financial affairs
A Health and Welfare LPA allows decisions to be made on your behalf on such things as your daily routine, medical treatment and future care. It can only be used when you’re unable to make your own decisions.
