A health and welfare power of attorney appoints someone you nominate to make decisions regarding your health and welfare. This can be particularly important if you do not wish for your next of kin to make those decisions on your behalf. Health and welfare decisions include where you live and the medical treatment you receive.
Andrew Gullett has a particular interest and experience in advising clients and their families dealing with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia both through the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorney and where appropriate making applications for the appointment of deputies if mental capacity has already been lost.
