A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets the ‘donor’ appoint one or more people (known as ‘attorneys’) to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf.
 
This gives the donor more control over what happens to them if, for example, they have an accident or an illness and can’t make decisions at the time they need to be made (they ‘lack mental capacity’).
 
You must be 18 or over and have mental capacity (the ability to make your own decisions) when you make your LPA.
 
There are 2 types of LPA:
  • health and welfare
  • property and financial affairs
You can choose to make one type or both.
 
Health and welfare lasting power of attorney
Use this LPA to give an attorney the power to make decisions about things like:
  • the donors daily routine, e.g. washing, dressing, eating
  • medical care
  • moving into a care home
  • life-sustaining treatment
It can only be used when the donor is unable to make their own decisions.
 
Property and financial affairs lasting power of attorney
Use this LPA to give an attorney the power to make decisions about money and property for the donor, for example:
  • managing a bank or building society account
  • paying bills
  • collecting benefits or a pension
  • selling the donors home
It can be used as soon as it’s registered, with the donor’s permission.
 

At Trust Matters we can prepare the documentation for you and guide you through the process of signing and registering your documents, making a complicated process into a series of simple and understandable steps.
