We have teamed up with specialist Clare Fuller to offer a full Power of Attorney drafting service. If you wish, Clare will also support you to develop your action plan (no extra charge) so your conversation can range across all the topics covered in the My Future Care Handbook (to take advantage of this additional support you will need a copy of the Handbook). You will benefit from dealing with one person, whilst giving Clare the opportunity to ensure that she fully understands your needs before creating your Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) on your behalf.
Clare is a Registered General Nurse and has specialised in providing care for people at the end of life working in hospices, the community and acute hospitals. She worked in a national role for the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) delivering the acute hospital GSF programme, supported delivery of the NHS Five Year Forward View plan working for a Clinical Commissioning Group and as a Director for a Practice Alliance. Clare’s LPA services are rated excellent on Trustpilot.
There are two types of LPA:
Health and Welfare LPA gives an attorney the power to make decisions about things like:
- your daily routine, for example washing, dressing, eating
- medical care
- moving into a care home
- life-sustaining treatment
Property & Financial Affairs LPA gives an attorney the power to make decisions about money and property for you, for example:
- managing a bank or building society account
- paying bills
- collecting benefits or a pension
- selling your home
You can select whether you would like Clare to draft one (£135) or both (£255) types of LPA for you. You will also see a further option of ordering as a couple: 4 LPAs cost a total of £500.
These prices exclude the charge made by the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) of £82.00 to register each LPA. There are exemptions and remissions available depending on your circumstances and the price includes support in applying for exemption or admission as appropriate.
