Declining mental capacity is a cruel condition, particularly as its rate of progression can be unpredictable, suddenly worsening between periods of remission. Meanwhile, everyday life goes on and personal affairs have to be dealt with. Until the day when that is no longer possible.
If you arrive at that day unprepared, a heavy responsibility will pass to your family. They may have to apply to the Court of Protection to be appointed as deputy over your affairs, an expensive and complex process.
At Labrums we have considerable experience of the Court and will assist your family every step of the way. But how much better is it to take control of your own destiny now by making a valid Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) with our help? You can make choices about your future care and finances, secure in the knowledge that through the LPA your wishes will be carried out, if and when the time comes. It’s cost effective and relatively simple, provides peace of mind and avoids the complications of the Court of Protection.
