When should I make a Power of At­tor­ney?

YOURS (UK) - - Good To Know -

You must draw up an on­go­ing Power of At­tor­ney while you’re still able to un­der­stand what you’re do­ing. Ideally, dis­cuss it with your can­di­dates be­fore it’s an is­sue. That way, it’s less emo­tional and you can be sure they are clear about your wishes. A fi­nan­cial LPA can be used by the at­tor­ney even while you are able to make your own de­ci­sions; a health and wel­fare LPA can only be used if you have lost men­tal ca­pac­ity.
