A Lasting Power of Attorney is an authority from the donor to the attorney to make decisions about the donor’s health, welfare, property and financial matters including when the donor no longer has mental capacity. There are two types: one allowing the attorney to make decisions about property and finance and the other to make decisions about health and welfare.
The Court of Protection makes decisions on behalf of people who lacks mental capacity and where there is no power of attorney in place. A person may lack mental capacity due to dementia, illness, learning disability or accident. Decisions can be made by the court about welfare or financial matters.
As the owner of a business, you should consider what would happen to your business if you were to: 1) be self-isolating 2) be stuck abroad due to travel restrictions 3) be abroad on business or holiday 4) have an accident or lose mental capacity
A Living Will is also known as Advance Directives. Living Wills are intended to allow individuals to specify the healthcare they would or would not find acceptable in the event they lose capacity. They are especially useful when made with Lasting Powers of Attorney, since the person legally gives power to others (their attorneys) to carry out their wishes specific in the living will.
