We have all heard about the importance of making a Will, however too few of us consider or have knowledge about Powers of Attorney. A Will only takes effect once an individual sadly passes away but what about being unable to make
decisions whilst you are still alive? Having Powers of Attorney in place is just as important and is sensible for everyone to consider despite your age.We are informed by Public Health England that life expectancy at older ages in England has risen to its highest ever level therefore the likelihood of us losing capacity through illness or accident is far greater. Nobody likes talking or thinking about getting old but planning now for what could lie ahead is the best way to ease the burden on loved ones if such unfortunate illnesses were to occur.
