Choose Who Will Make Decisions if you Can’t
None of us can predict what lies ahead. Accidents can happen and illnesses can strike at any age, leaving you unable to make decisions for yourself.
Which is where a Power of Attorney, drawn up by Pacitti Jones, can help you stay in control.
It’s a legally binding document giving a named family member or friend the right to make decisions or take actions on your behalf should anything happen to you.
From finding the best level of care for you and setting up payment from one of your bank or building society accounts, to more everyday things like ensuring any household bills are paid.
Without one, you could find the courts – not someone you trust to act in your best interests – in charge of your affairs.
Timing is Key
When it comes to setting up a Power of Attorney, timing is everything. It must be done while you’re still in good mental health. Rest assured, it can only be used if you’re unable to make decisions for yourself – and not a moment before.
Leave it too late however, and should a serious accident or illness occur, your loved ones will have to apply to the courts for the right to help manage your affairs. A process that involves time, money and unnecessary heartache.
Contact Pacitti Jones today and we’ll talk you through everything you need to know about setting up a Power of Attorney, along with any special restrictions you may wish to include.
We’ll then draw up the necessarily forms, help you to complete them and officially register them at the Office of the Public Guardian on your behalf, ensuring you’re fully protected sooner rather than later.
