Powers of Attorney and Advising the Elderly

Although a Will deals with your affairs after you die, what will happen if you become unable to deal with your own affairs? Perhaps because of an accident, illness or the onset of dementia.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney provides an opportunity for you to appoint your own choice of attorney to look after your affairs, both financial and/or health, should you become incapable for whatever reason. Alternatively, you maybe housebound and unable to take care of your day-to-day needs or in a care home, having lost your capacity.

We can guide you through the power of attorney process and assist you with the completion of the forms, the application to register the forms and any other enquiries or assistance you may require.

Price packages for Lasting Powers of Attorney start at £285.00 plus VAT and registration fee per form. We can also offer packages for Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney when completed together. Please contact us for more information.

Deputyship

But what happens if there is no power of attorney in place and you have lost your mental capacity? Unfortunately, sometimes it can be too late to execute a Lasting Power of Attorney and it is therefore necessary for someone to apply to the Court of Protection to be appointed as a ‘Deputy.’ This can be costly and time consuming but we can help you through each stage and make an application to the Court on your behalf.
