Who do you trust to look after your interests?
It is crucial to have power of attorneys in place. We often underestimate the value of these, but it takes a second for life to turn around. Unfortunately, the probability of meeting a car accident is quite high and that one car accident can result in severe brain injury causing you to lose your cognitive abilities. If this happens, have you thought about who will look after your family? Who will look after your business, your family house, your pets? Most importantly, who will make medical decisions for you? Who will decide whether you should undergo particular surgery or not? The doctor or someone close to you?
Who can you appoint as Attorneys?
You can appoint anyone so long as they are an adult with legal capacity and you trust them with your affairs. You can appoint more than one person.
What powers does the Attorney have?
You can choose what powers you would like to give, from financial to medical. You may chose to give limited financial management powers. It is completely your choice.
