A Lasting Power of Attorney or LPA for short, (previously known as EPA "Enduring Power of Attorney") is a document which provides your chosen individual(s) known as your "Attorney(s)" with the power to act on your behalf, should you become incapacitated or unable to make your own decisions.
For some people, this may be at the point in which they struggle to leave their home due to mobility, for others this may be down to diseases such as Alzheimer's or Dementia, or this may be a result of an accident or injury that leaves you unable to manage your own affairs effectively.
There are 3 main types of Power of Attorney:
1 - Health & Welfare
2 - Property & Financial Affairs
3 - Business Affairs
