There may come a time in the future when, for one reason or another, you lack the capacity to make decisions about your affairs yourself. A Lasting Power of Attorney (or LPA) is a legal document that allows you to appoint a trusted individual to make decisions on your behalf.
There are two basic types of LPA:
Property and Affairs LPA will allow you to choose someone you trust to make decisions about how to spend your money and to manage your property and affairs.
Personal Welfare LPA will allow you to choose someone you trust to make decisions about your health and welfare. This would include the power to refuse or consent to certain medical treatments on your behalf. A Personal Welfare LPA allows your appointed person to decide where you live if you are unable to make this decision for yourself.
Either type of LPA must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.
