Caring for an Adult


Allington Hughes has an experienced and dedicated team to help you with making decisions regarding your own future and for helping relatives or friends when they cannot make decisions regarding their property and affairs or health and welfare themselves.

Making decisions about your own future

If you find it difficult to deal with your day to day finances, whether that is over the telephone or attending your local bank, or you are leaving the country for a few months and want to ensure your affairs are in order whilst you are away, then you can create a document called a General Power of Attorney whereby you appoint someone you trust to act on your behalf and in your name. This is a straightforward document and can be used in many situations, but should you lose mental capacity to make those decisions yourself, it becomes invalid.
Therefore it is important to have in place a Lasting Power of Attorney. This allows you to appoint an individual or individuals who you trust to make decisions on your behalf in relation to your Health and Welfare and/or Property and Affairs which subsists in the event of you losing the capacity to make those decisions yourself.

Caring for another individual

When someone has lost the capacity to make their own decisions regarding their Health and Welfare and/or Property and Affairs and they did not put in place either an Enduring Power of Attorney or a Lasting Power of Attorney whilst they had the capacity to do so you may be able to apply to the Court of Protection for authority to become their Deputy so you can make decisions on their behalf.
Alternatively, if you suspect that someone you know is the subject of financial and/or physical abuse as a result of their incapacity to make decisions themselves you may be able to apply to the Court of Protection to become their Deputy to protect them from further abuse and potentially recover any assets obtained by the abuse. We can also assist you with an application to the Court of Protection to make a decision on a specific issue regarding an individual’s financial or welfare needs.

Statutory Wills

If the individual who has lost capacity does not have a Will in place or their current Will is no longer relevant then we can assist you with an application to the Court of Protection which has the power to authorise a Will being signed on that individual’s behalf.
