There are two types of lasting power of attorney: health and welfare lasting powers of attorney and property and affairs lasting powers of attorney. Power of attorney solicitors will advise on both types and fully explain to you how each of them work. You can have one, or both, depending on what is important to you. But it is usually advisable to have both.
There is nothing more heartbreaking than finding out that someone whom you trust dearly does not have any legal right to manage your affairs.
