As we get older some of us are unfortunate enough to develop illnesses that can leave you mentally incapacitated making it very difficult to carry out everyday duties and responsibilities. It may not be possible for you to make important decisions you would have been able to sometimes only a couple of years previously. In such cases your loved ones may have to carry out tasks and make decisions on your behalf, to do so they will need a lasting power of attorney.
If this is not in place before you become mentally incapacitated your loved ones can face a long, distressing court battle as they seek to take control of your health and finances. The UK government is urging those in their 20’s and 30’s to talk with loved ones about creating lasting power of attorney’s while they still have the capacity of doing so.
A spokesperson for the government “planning future campaign” said: “We want people to view LPAs as an important part of planning for their family’s future”. Those who play contact sports or enjoy adventure holidays should consider creating a Lasting Power of Attorney as a way of ensuring their best interests are upheld and that their family can take control of their finances, sparing them potentially lengthy court battles.
