What is a Lasting Power of Attorney? Take just four minutes to find out
We’ve put together a short four minute interview with Fiona Hewitt, Director and Head of Elderly Client Services at Hayes + Storr, explaining the purpose of a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). If you or someone you know is considering making an LPA, you may find this short audio piece useful.
Take just four minutes to listen to a short overview on making a Lasting Power of Attorney.
A Power of Attorney is a legal document where a person known as the donor gives another person (or people) called the attorney/s legal authority to make certain decisions on his or her behalf. Unlike an ordinary (or “general”) power of attorney, an LPA enables the appointed attorney(s) to make decisions on the donors behalf, often in the event that they lack the ability to do so themselves.
