Choosing someone you trust to make important decisions.
Having a Power of Attorney agreed is something we consider to be essential when planning for your future. It enables you to decide who will handle your affairs and take any important decisions should you be in a position where you are no longer able to.
Taking control of your future
By nominating an individual to make decisions regarding your welfare or finance you are ensuring that there is no uncertainty or worry for your loved ones should there ever be a time when it is required.
Without a Power of Attorney in place, your loved ones may be required to go to court to get the authority to act on your behalf. This can be a lengthy and expensive process so by setting this up now, you are making things clearer and easier for the future.
What does it cover?
Health & Welfare
Making decisions on a variety of things such as care issues, consent for medical treatment or where you should live.
Property & Finance
Ensuring that bills are paid and that your money is looked after.
With a Power of Attorney via Benedict Funeral Directors Ltd, you can choose to cover either one of these options above, or both, with no additional cost. Inform us of what type of Power of Attorney you would like and when you would like it to be effective from. You are in control of what you want to happen.
How it works
- Arrange the Power of Attorney to be set up while you are still able to do so
- Nominate the person you’d like to act as your attorney
- Decide when you would like the attorney to take effective from – right away or only if you lose capacity
- Register the Power of Attorney with the Office of the Public Guardian – Benedict Funeral Directors Ltd can arrange this on your behalf which means there is nothing further for you to do
