Who should have Lasting Powers of Attorney?
We recommend that every adult should create Lasting Powers of Attorney before it’s too late to do so, because no-one wants to allow a stranger to have the power to decide how you should be treated medically or where you should be living.
Who should the responsibility be given to?
It’s very important to choose the right attorneys, so they are usually family members or close friends. Whoever it is must be reliable and trustworthy, but putting LPAs in place can provide real comfort, knowing that there is always someone there to manage your personal affairs and remove the anxiety of having unpaid bills, at a time when you – and they – most need it.
