Planning Ahead

Power of Attorney

Even if you don’t think it will be useful yet, it’s a good idea to speak to the person you care for about getting a Power of Attorney sorted as early as you can. Power of Attorney lets them appoint one or more people to help them make decisions, or make decisions on their behalf. It only becomes active at the point where they can no longer decide for themselves.

They can choose whether they want a Power of Attorney for health and welfare, for property and financial affairs, or for both.

It costs £82 to register a Power of Attorney unless you get a reduction or exemption.

You can find out more on gov.uk.

Your Care Matters

You may find it helpful for the person you care for to set up a “MyCareMatters” profile. This tells hospital staff and other healthcare professionals about the things they want staff to know about them as a person. It can also be a useful tool to help friends, family and carers understand what a person would want to happen if they need more care in the future, or if they needed to go into hospital.

The MyCareMatters profile is of particular value to people with communication challenges, such as those living with dementia, but there may come a time in any of our lives that we are admitted to hospital, for a planned visit or in an emergency and may, temporarily or otherwise, be unable to communicate. MyCareMatters provides the opportunity to tell hospital staff that you drink your tea black, that you have a fear of needles and like to wear socks in bed because of your poor circulation. For carers, it can help to have all of this information in one easy-to-share place.

For more information, and to create a profile, visit the MyCareMatters website.
