Health & Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney
If you want to stay in control of your future and what happens to you in the event of failing health then contact us to discuss a Health & Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney.
Solicitors for the Elderly campaign
Both Myron Handzij and Lee Kirby are members of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE). The SFE are highlighting the fact that whilst a large majority of us worry about issues such as dementia very few of us do anything about it. In other words we are leaving how we would like to be treated should the worst happen to chance.
Lasting Power of Attorney
Health and welfare
This LPA covers your personal and health care. This type of LPA can only be used if you don’t have the mental capacity to make decisions yourself.
What does this cover?
You can use it to let your attorneys decide about:
- your daily routine
- what you wear and eat,
- moving into a care home
- getting help from social services
- to refuse or agree to any medical treatment you may need to stay alive (if your attorneys don’t have that power, doctors would decide).
