At Crossroads Together, we care about people and the choices they make. We want everyone to feel empowered to make their own decisions.

What is Lasting Power of Attorney?

Crossroads Together provide a lasting power of attorney service.

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows you to choose someone you trust, often a family member, to act on your behalf should you no longer be able to make your own decisions.

Having an LPA in place allows you to continue to be in control of your choices, even if you no longer have capacity to make decisions.

There are two types of LPA, one covering health and welfare and the
other covering property and financial affairs. You can make an LPA for
one (single) or both areas (dual) depending on your needs.

Why should I register an LPA?

Creating a power of attorney ensures your choices are supported when you can no longer make them.

An LPA ensures your assets will be looked after should you loose capacity.

You can set up a lasting power of attorney at any time, not just as you approach old age.

An LPA is legally binding, thereby allowing you to stay in control.
