A power of attorney is a legal document that allows someone to make decisions for you or act on your behalf in the event that you become unable to.
It may seem daunting but it can also provide peace of mind that legal aspects are in place should you ever need them.
We encourage carers to ask about what power of attorney could mean for them, and our support workers can talk you through the process.
For more information, visit the Law Society of Scotland.
Choosing a power of attorney is a difficult decision and it is important to seek independent advice. Your solicitor can help with this.
