It is wise for people to plan ahead and set out what they would like to happen should they one day become unable to make decisions for themselves.
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document which enables someone who has capacity and is over 18 (the Donor) to select another person or persons (Attorney(s)) to make decisions on behalf of the Donor.
If no LPA is in place, it may be necessary to apply for a Deputyship application.
