A Lasting Power of Attorney (Property & Affairs) is a legal document that lets you say who you want to handle all your financial affairs if you are unable to do so. You can also appoint someone to make Health & Welfare decisions for you.
Quite simply your Will takes affect upon your death and a Lasting Power of Attorney whilst you are still living. People are becoming more and more aware these days of the problems that can arise if you don't die but become incapable of managing your own affairs. As we get older it's things like senile dementia, Alzheimer's or just getting old but it doesn't just apply to the elderly, you could be a young healthy person involved in an accident which leaves you unable to look after your own affairs.
If you become incapable of making decisions for yourself and have not appointed another person then your personal affairs would be the responsibility of the Public Guardianship Office. Not only would you and your family have to come to terms with the grief and emotion of illness, you would also have the added strain of dealing with officials for every decision.
