It is estimated that only 1% of the current UK population have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place. This is a statistic we, and our Associates, are looking to improve; especially in light of the debate this morning.

It was revealed on Good Morning Britain that, according to their research, privately funding residents (those that fund their own care with savings) are subsidising council-funded care home tenants.

Good Morning Britain’s research not only revealed that private care home residents pay a staggering £214 more per week than local-authority residents (a shocking 44% more!), but also the cost of care is continuing to rise. It has shown that residents living in similar or identical accommodation who fund their care from their estate pay more, and Good Morning Britain claim that the residents who pay are subsidising council-funded care home tenants.

It is our aim to raise awareness of the reasons why every adult needs an LPA in place. There are two types of LPA:

  • Health and Welfare LPA – allows the Attorney to make decisions about the health care the Donor receives.
  • Financial and Property Affairs – allows the Attorney to make decisions and manage the Donor finances – i.e. how to pay for their care

Without this important document, the family and loved ones of the donor cannot make any decision about the care received or about how to pay for this care.
