  • What To Do When You Lose Your Marbles

    Date 22,April,16
    Written by

    We all want to grow old gracefully, or disgracefully, but whichever way we choose, we all would want to grow old with our marbles intact. But what would happen if you did lose your marbles?

    Statistics provided by the Alzheimers Society show that 1 in every 79 people in the UK aged under 65 years and 1 in every 14 people in the UK suffer from dementia. This figure does not take into account other diseases which also affect a persons mental capacity. Therefore joking aside it is really important that as individuals (whilst we can) we act to assist Loved Ones to assist us, if the time comes when we can't help ourselves. The truth is the sooner, the better to start having this conversation with yourself and the ones you want to be your voice when you can longer act in your best interest.

    So Lasting Powers of Attorney are available just in case you do lose your marbles… Or in the case of Property and Finance (with marbles in tact) you want to give permission to another to act upon your behalf.

    Lasting Powers of Attorneys are legal documents which can be created to protect you and your affairs. By being prepared when you have mental capacity, if you should lose your mental capacity, you can ensure that the people looking after you know your wishes. You can make sure decisions about you are made in your best interests.

    You appoint ‘Attorneys’, who are the people you choose to make decisions on your behalf if you lose your capacity.

    There are two types of Lasting Powers of Attorney;

    -          Health and Welfare Lasting Powers of Attorney allow your Attorneys to make decisions about your day to day care. It allows your Attorneys to help make decisions about your medical care. It allows you to decide who you would like to make decisions about life sustaining treatment. This Lasting Power of Attorney can only be used by your Attorneys if you lose mental capacity. 


          Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Powers of Attorney allow your Attorneys to speak to your bank or building society on your behalf. It allows your Attorneys to pay your bills and collect any benefits or pension payments on your behalf. This Lasting Power can be used as soon as its registered or if you lose mental capacity; the decision is yours.

          Within your Lasting Powers of Attorney, you can give instructions and state wishes of what you would like to happen should you lose capacity.

          Dawsons Law prepare Lasting Powers of Attorney for a fixed fee price of £250 plus VAT (or £350 plus Vat) OPG fee may apply. We do NOT charge and additional amount for the application for registration.
