These are important legal documents particularly for the elderly as they facilitate trusted family members to look after your affairs subject to any limitations that you might impose.

A simple power of attorney means that another person has your authority to look after your affairs for you but this comes to an end on your death or should you lose mental capacity. An Enduring Power of Attorney permits a trusted family member/friend to look after your affairs for you should you lose your mental capacity for any reason such as head injury, stroke or dementia. Enduring Powers of Attorney are particularly useful in terms of providing peace of mind in that they provide a safety net.
