POWERS OF ATTORNEY
Help when you need it most
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a registered document that gives you control of either, or both, the financial affairs and/or the health of your loved one when they are unable to express their own wishes through illness or incapacity.
Are you looking after elderly parents or relatives?
Worried about how you might be able to look after them in the future?
One in four people in the UK dies at home. But three in four want to.*
You can help your loved ones get the care they want by registering a Lasting Power of Attorney.
We can visit you and your loved ones either at home or in a care home to help you put your legal affairs in order and put your mind at rest.

None of us want to think about a time when we might not be able to make decisions for ourselves. But if you don’t document your personal wishes, then they can’t be respected.
Do you want the Medical Profession to decide on your care, without your family’s consent?
Are you happy for the State to move you into a care home, even if your family knows it is not what you want?
Can you imagine your family facing a lengthy and expensive court battle to gain access to your finances so they can pay for the support you need?
