Be wise! Is it time for you to organise Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) for yourself (or for your parents)?
Anyone over 60 should have Lasting Powers of Attorney – we’ll help!
Growing old can bring many problems. Dementia in some form. Parkinson’s. Stroke. Cancer. Diabetes. Arthritis. The list goes on. Some occur in an instant. Some creep up insidiously. Many conditions mean that your family or friends may eventually have to help you with day-to-day organisational tasks.
While you are in reasonable health it is important to arrange Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). These are powerful documents. They will give family members, trusted friends or professionals’ legal powers to look after your affairs when and if it becomes necessary.
Without LPAs, it’s very difficult, very time-consuming and very expensive to deal on a relative or friend’s behalf with the bank, the doctor, the care home… Many families sadly discover this when it’s too late, trying to manage bank accounts, pensions and insurance policies after someone has been struck down with dementia or incapacitated through accident or illness.
With an LPA in place and ready to go, acting on behalf of a loved one is straightforward and the interests of all parties are protected.
The government advises ALL older people to take out LPAs. They are efficient and cost effective. LPAs save families thousands of pounds in ANNUAL legal fees.
Organise Lasting Powers of Attorney while you can – it will save your family and friends money, stress and time-consuming legal hassles.
The most important thing to remember is that an LPA can only be set up while the person who is giving the Power of Attorney has ‘Mental Capacity’. They MUST understand what they are doing when they sign the document.
NEXT YEAR, NEXT MONTH, NEXT WEEK MAY BE TOO LATE!
So, keep up with exercise, a decent diet, mind gym and the multi-vitamins. They might work.
In the meantime, protect yourself and the ones you love with something that definitely works – organise Lasting Powers of Attorney today.
Your local Just Wills & Legal Services consultant will help. We will gently guide you through the LPA process in the comfort of your own home.
