Facing the thought that you might not be able to manage your own affairs one day is difficult. We understand that. We can work with you to create an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) document, which is the best way to ensure you decide who will assist you to decide who will mange your finances, how you will be cared for, and what medical treatment you receive, should you become unable to make that decision in the future.
Having this document in place allows you to have a trusted person to ensure your safety and that of your family when you are unable to do so.
The power to make person and health decisions for you begins only if you lose the ability to make your own decisions.
However, you may grant an EPA for financial matters which commences immediately. This can have advantages if you are absent from the region or lose mobility.
