At the same time as considering your Will we strongly recommend that you also put in place plans for any future incapacity through a Power of Attorney. This will ensure that if you somehow become unable to make decisions about your finances, your medical treatment or living arrangements then the person or persons who you trust to make these decisions can do so unhindered.
