Powers of Attorney

What is a power of Attorney? A power of attorney is a document in which an individual appoints someone to serve as his attorney to deal with either their financial affairs on their behalf or to make decisions about their Health and welfare.

 

There are a number of reasons why you might need someone to make decisions for you or act on your behalf:

 

i)    This could just be a temporary situation: for example, if you are in hospital and need help with everyday things such as

making sure bills are paid.

 

ii)   Alternatively, you may need to make longer-term plans if, for example, you have been diagnosed with early onset        dementia and you fear that you may lose the mental capacity to make your own decisions in the future.

     

Our team are experienced in being able to certify whether or not a client has mental capacity and are trained to deal with the more vulnerable members of society.
