What Is A Power Of Attorney
Powers of Attorney are usually provided by persons wishing to appoint a person or persons as their agent to carry out certain legal matters on their behalf and they are usually in two categories:
1) Enduring Medical Power of Attorney
This is usually provided by a person who may have a medical condition, particularly one that may affect his mental and legal capacity such as a person suffering from Dementia or Alzheimers or is likely to suffer from a debilitating mental disease.
2) Financial and Personal Power of Attorney
This is usually provided by a person who may wish for a variety of reasons to appoint an agent to carry out certain legal matters on his behalf, such as if a person is going overseas, or if you are sick and unable to look after your own financial and personal affairs such as doing the banking. This might apply to persons who are also suffering from Dementia, Alzheimer or a debilitating disease.
