Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)
This enables you to give another person (or several people) the right to make decisions relating to your property and affairs and/or your personal welfare if you lose the ability to do so for yourself.
Decisions about care and treatment can be covered by a Personal Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney. All Lasting Power of Attorneys must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian, otherwise they cannot be used. It only applies to adults over 18. You can get a special form from the Office of the Public Guardian or stationery shops that provide legal packs.
