Lasting Power of Attorney

When you are an active young and healthy adult making your way in life both professionally and personally, you are more likely to be planning your next night out or holiday than thinking about the future. But what would happen if you had an accident or an incapacitating illness or condition which negatively affects your whole life?

You are never too young to think about making a ‘Lasting Power of Attorney’, which is a legal agreement that assigns a trusted family member or friend to manage your affairs if you become unable to handle them yourself.  Whilst you might assume that an LPA is something just for old people or those who engage in dangerous sports, sadly, serious accidents can unexpectedly happen in so many everyday situations, whether that be playing sports, cycling to work or going on holiday
