At Barrister-Direct, we understand that no one really wants to think about ill-health or growing old. However, when an individual’s affairs are not properly planned, this can lead to issues and complications arising, and, your wishes, not being granted in respect of both your financial affairs and healthcare or medical needs.
By making what is known as a Power of Attorney, you can ensure that your wishes are protected and that measures are in place for your future, should you need them. Through a Property and Financial Affairs power of Attorney, these measures can include the management of your financial affairs, the payment of obligations or disposing of assets. Additionally, through a Health and Welfare Power of Attorney, you can make decisions and ensure your wishes in respect of elderly care, end of life care or life sustaining treatment are protected.
Our friendly, supportive and understanding team can assist you with creating powers of attorney that are based upon your individual circumstances, wishes and needs to secure your peace of mind and future.
