Power of attorney for carers
A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets you (the 'donor') appoint one or more people (known as 'attorneys') to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf.
This gives you more control over what happens to you if you have an accident or an illness and cannot make your own decisions (you 'lack mental capacity').
Find out more about the lasting power of attorneys on the Carers UK website.
There are 2 types of LPA:
- health and welfare
- property and financial affairs
You can choose to make one type or both.
