Care and Court of Protection
It is a great blessing that we are tending to live for longer. Unfortunately, it can not be taken for granted that we will maintain our health and mental faculties until we pass on. Indeed, one of the greatest challenges of our times is that more and more people are losing mental capacity and/or need to go into care.
If someone loses mental capacity they will not be able to deal with their own affairs. They could not even write a valid cheque. The only way that someone else could deal with their affairs is if they were appointed that persons attorney by a valid Lasting Power of Attorney or if they are appointed as Deputy by the Court of Protection.
Applying to the Court of Protection to be appointed as a deputy is expensive and causes delay. It also means that the court must be involved in making important decisions and be accounted to. The process is complex and difficult. Labrums Solicitors has considerable experience in dealing with the Court and can help at all stages of the process.
All of theses problems can be avoided simply and relatively cheaply by making a valid Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). Labrums Solicitors can give you detailed and expert advice in the preparation of LPAs to ensure that your wishes are carried out both financially and in connection with your health.
Labrums solicitors also work closely with Carematters who are chartered financial advisers specialising in advice and guidance for the retired, the elderly and their families
