One of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family is to put an Enduring Power of Attorney in place in order to properly plan for the future.
An Enduring Power of Attorney enables you to choose a person you trust called “an Attorney” to manage your property and/or your personal care in the event that you become mentally incapable of doing so.
An Enduring Power of Attorney allows you to plan for the future while you are in good health. It is a document that comes into effect only at such time when you lose the mental capacity to make decisions. If you become mentally incapable of making decisions and you do not have an Enduring Power of Attorney in place, the Courts will step in and you will be made a ward of court. This means that the Courts make decisions in relation to your property and affairs and your personal care. If you have an Enduring Power of Attorney in place however, the person or persons that you appoint as your attorneys, the people that you trust most, make those decisions on your behalf.
