We should all have powers of attorney. These are the documents that appoint a person who can make decisions on your behalf if you cannot.
As we get older, or if we suffer from unexpected illness, we need to make sure that someone is ready to help us pay bills, sell our house and arrange any medical care on our behalf. When preparing a power of attorney, you need to consider who is best for the different roles – personal care and welfare, and property. We can highlight some of the issues and explain how these important documents work.
