Loss of mobility or illness can make it difficult to manage your affairs
- An elderly relative losing capacity Is difficult enough for loved ones to deal with without the added worry that finances are becoming muddled
- The prospect of unpaid bills can cause unnecessary stress and anxiety and delay someone’s recovery
- Having someone you know and trust and more importantly who understands you to manage your affairs is far preferable than having a court official
- Even the young can encounter problems due to an accident or illness
Growing older can mean problems for us and our loved ones
If you are unable to manage your affairs what can you do?
At some stage in the future you may have an illness, an accident or other incapacity which makes you unable to manage your financial affairs or your personal welfare. This can happen even if you are young.
It can therefore be a huge help to have someone we trust to be able to manage our personal affairs for us and to remove the worry of having bills that are unpaid at a time when you need peace of mind most.
As we get older and we are more prone to illness and injury the need for having that trustworthy attorney increases.
By acting now to create a Lasting Power of Attorney you will have the peace of mind knowing that both your financial affairs and personal welfare are safely taken care of
