Lasting Power of Attorney

March 28 2019

After a diagnosis of Dementia, it is worth forward planning including setting up Lasting Power of Attorney for both health and financial affairs. 

What is lasting power of attorney? 

For a person with a diagnosis of dementia, there may come a time when they are unable to make decisions about their care and their finances. A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document appointing one, or more, trusted people to be their attorney(s). An attorney is a person responsible for making decisions on their behalf.
