Powers of Attorney are very essential to accommodate delegations, travel and other absences. They are used widely in the commercial world to facilitate the signing of documents. An enduring Power of Attorney is most important if someone is very ill or has lost the ability to look after their own affairs.
A Power of Guardianship is very useful if you wish to ensure someone can make decisions for you or to repeat your own wishes in matters relating to your medical, dental and physical care.
Hansons Lawyers can guide and advise you on the most suitable arrangements for decision making considering your particular circumstances.
