What is a Lasting Power of Attorney(LPA)?

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a document that allows you to appoint one or more people you trust to assist you in making decisions if you lose mental capacity and are unable to make your own decisions due to accident or illness either short or long term.  By putting an LPA in place you have control over who makes these decisions for you if you do lose mental capacity in the future.
