Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family, but just as important is the conversation you have with a solicitor before you make a will. By making a Will or an Enduring Power of Attorney (if you lose the capacity to make decisions) you can put plans in place to create a better future for your loved ones if something happens to you.
HOW DO I MAKE MY WISHES KNOWN?
- Make a will
- Make your enduring power of attorney
An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf if you become seriously ill or have an accident and lose capacity.
Your Financial Attorney is responsible for:
• Paying bills such as your rent, electricity, pet food, medical and vet expenses
• Managing your investments
• Preparing your tax returns.
Your attorney for personal and health matters is responsible for:
• Where you live and who will care for you
• Certain medical decisions, treatment options, and medicines.
- Have conversations with those you trust
Once you’ve made your Will and Enduring Power of Attorney, it’s a good idea to have a conversation with those you trust, so they can support your wishes in the future.
Your wishes may include:
• Who will care for your pets
• Where you will be cared for – in your home or in a care facility
• Funeral arrangements – including if you want to be buried or cremated
• Who is to be your Executor and your Attorney.
You want to make sure your Will is valid and that it is properly drawn up. This can be done through professionals. A solicitor will let you know about your rights and obligations and make sure that you have expressed your wishes in the best possible. Make your WILL with professionals.
