Power of Attorney
Planning ahead at an early stage helps avoid decisions being made in a crisis. If you have family or close friends that you’d like to be involved in decisions about your health and finances, then you could consider setting up a Power of Attorney.
While we do our best to prepare for later life, care needs can quickly escalate. If you've been unable to set up a Power of Attorney, you may want to apply for deputy powers.
Staying in your home
There are a range of housing options available that mean you could still live independently while having care close to hand.
