Professional Health and Welfare Attorney

If you are unable to appoint an attorney for either property and affairs or health and welfare then we can help.

What are the benefits of having a Lasting Power of Attorney in place? 


A Lasting Power of Attorney gives you more control over what happens to you if you have an accident or an illness and can’t make your own decisions.


You decide who to appoint and what happens to you.


It can be reassuring to know that if you are unable to make a decision for yourself in the future, the person you choose will make the decisions for you.


Making an LPA ensures that the person you want to make decisions for you will be able to do so. This prevents a stranger or someone you may not necessarily trust from having this power. However if you would prefer to have a professional attorney to act on your behalf then it is essential you choose a provider who meets the standards outlined by the court of protection and provides personalised support.  


There are two forms of Lasting Power of Attorney:


  • Health and Welfare

  • Property and Finance

Professional Health and Welfare Attorney

Our Health and Welfare attorney service uses the Court of Protection’s Deputyship Standards (section 2 to 5) to ensure our service is of the highest level of quality. For us it's important we get to know you, your health needs and just as importantly your wishes and feelings, this can be in the form of:

  • Adult needs assessments

  • Advanced directives

  • Annual needs reviews

  • Monthly welfare reviews

This allows us to ensure should we need to make decisions on your behalf they are truly in your best interest.

To grant lasting power of attorney you must have the mental capacity to do so.

Professional Property and Financial Affairs Attorney

If you wish to appoint an attorney to manage your finances, we can refer you to a trusted, local solicitor to ensure you receive the very best support with managing finances such as paying bills and the sale or rent of any property you own.
