Having acan make your life in Putney easier.
Putney is located west of London and is also in close proximity to Fulham and Chelsea football grounds. However, Putney is probably most famed for the starting point of the Oxford versus Cambridge boat race. The echoes of the cox’s voice projecting down the loud speaker in rhythmic fashion blurting ‘stroke, stroke’, can be heard on the river’s banks
There is of course a far more serious connotation to the word ‘stroke’. Strokes can happen in an instant and have a devastating effect on the victim. A stroke can result in partial or permanent paralysis and have long-term effects on a person. A stroke can take different forms but broadly speaking it is the cutting off of blood flow to the brain which can result in several effects to walking, speaking, paralysis on one side of the body often resulting with a drooping of one arm or one side of the face. Sudden painful headaches may also be a symptom and Victims of strokes can suffer long-term physical disabilities.
Acan prove to be invaluable at this stage or for other diseases that affect the brain. Our Putney based Consultants are instructed to mention the usefulness of the document in ever Will appointment. We believe this is best practice as it operates along similar lines to a Will whereby you are granting authority to someone else ‘an attorney’ to deal with your affairs when you are unable.
There are two main types, both of which are available to the residents of Putney:
Personal and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorneys
The Personal and Welfare is available to the residents of Putney and across London. It in effect places your appointed attorney in your position, as if they were the patient. The doctors are then duty bound to consult with the attorney on the method of treatment and any steps or decision along the way. This is only operative once the loss of mental capacity is proven.
Property and Financial Lasting Power of Attorneys
The Property and Financial is also available to the residents of Putney. This grants the attorney for rights and permissions to deal with all your finances. For instance, they can directly communicate with the providers and banks on your accounts and mortgages. Unlike the Personal and Welfare this is can be turned or and off irrespective of the loss of mental capacity. This can for instance be of great help if you leave Putney for a few years and live abroad and you want someone to be able to look after your SW15 property whilst you are away.
If you want to find out more we will happily arrange for a consultation from our Putney basedConsultants.
