There are two types of LPA:
- The Property and Financial Affairs LPA
- The Health and Welfare LPA
This LPA allows your attorneys to make decisions concerning your health and wellbeing. It includes decisions about your medication and treatment and where you live. You also have the option of allowing your attorneys to make decisions regarding life-sustaining treatment.
You don’t have to have existing health problems to make an LPA.
This LPA allows your attorneys to make financial decisions; for example, paying your bills, dealing with your savings and investments, operating your bank accounts, collecting any income, benefits and pension due to you, maintaining your home and even buying and selling property.
