It's not always easy to admit that you or someone you care about is getting old or that your health is beginning to deteriorate.
However, it is important to put arrangements in place now so that when the time comes the person chosen by you (and not some stranger from social services) can arrange the right healthcare and financial support necessary for your needs - and, just as importantly, according to your wishes.
One person in the UK develops dementia every three minutes. Yet their relatives can't just take over their bank account, even if it is to provide for their care. Unless you've a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), your family will need to apply to the courts, which can be costly and take many months.
Of course, making a Lasting Power of Attorney is one thing. But what happens afterwards?
Often it leads to stress, worry and uncertainty for you and your attorney(s). And that's why we have developed a unique and complete solution that we know you will absolutely love - and for no extra cost.
Just like in the Marks and Sparks TV ads:
This is not just an LPA...
