An interesting item on radio 4 You and Yours this lunchtime about Lasting Power of Attorney. Some good advice from a solicitor who, unsurprisingly, suggests spending £500 or more for a professional to prepare the documents. That's a matter of choice as I found the online system made it easy to do without engaging a solicitor.

Moneybox live on Radio 4 at 3pm today will have more on LPA.


These items should be available on catch-up via BBC Sounds or the iPlayer app.

i Seem to be having trouble getting my parents to sign a power of attorney. In fact, one diagnosed and one waiting for memory clinic.

in truth I’m having trouble accepting mums diagnosis as the questions of memory test, seemed particularly hard. it was sad she couldn’t answer any.
