It can be a daunting prospect to consider physical and mental difficulties that may arise in the future. However, it is important to consider the steps that can be taken to protect your welfare and financial affairs should your physical or mental health deteriorate in the future.
If you have a relative or a friend that you can trust then you may wish to consider granting a Power of Attorney in their favour. A Power of Attorney would enable that individual to act on your behalf if you were unable to deal with matters for yourself. The Power of Attorney would stipulate the powers that you wanted that person to have to deal with your welfare and/or financial affairs.
We can assist you in preparing an appropriate Power of Attorney to suit your individual requirements and offer guidance as to whether you require a Financial, Welfare or Combined Power of Attorney.
