  1. Without a Power of Attorney, your children or first line Carer have limited or no powers to care for you as you would have wished, especially if you cannot dictate your wishes.
  2. Your accounts may be frozen. Wouldn’t it be such a shame if your children are unable to access your hard earned funds to care for you? Or you are unable to access your Parent’s hard earned funds to cater for them?
  3. You are dumped in a Care Home that is not of your choice.
  4. Your loving home is being sold off so that the proceeds of your home can be used to fund your care in a Care Home and your children have no say in the matter.
  5. You are not allowed to go and live with your children or person or place of your choice. You have to go where the Local Authority or Government assign you to stay.
  6. Your children may have to incur expensive Legal Fees and waste so much time, just to resolve these issues.
  7. You and your children may not have the opportunity to decide on your End of Life Care.
