In an ideal world, when someone you care for becomes incapable of managing their own affairs they will have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place.

When you pass away, you want to leave your loved ones as much of your wealth as possible. However, with Inheritance Tax (IHT) charged at 40% on estates worth more than £325,000, IHT can take a significant slice out of anything you wish to bequeath family and friends.
The good news is that most of us are living longer. The less welcome news is that these extra years can cost us more in terms of paying for care, potentially leaving our children with little or no inheritance. Even when leaving an inheritance isn’t the number one priority, protecting your independence, dignity and self-respect is surely high on the agenda.
Making a Will is something many of us put off, continually pushing it to the back of our minds because we’d rather not think about what’s going to happen when we die. However, a Will is the single most important legacy you can leave your loved ones.
