1. Q&A: Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) - Thursday 27 Sept, 3-4pm

    Power of attorney (LPA) is a legal tool that gives another adult - often a carer or family member - the legal authority to make decisions on behalf of someone with dementia, if they become unable to themselves.

    Our next expert Q&A will be hosted by Flora and Helen from our Knowledge Services team. They will be answering your questions on LPA on Thursday 27 September from 3-4pm.

    You can either post questions >here< or email them to us at talkingpoint@alzheimers.org.uk and we'll answer as many as we can on the day.

    Hi.

    My Mum is 72 and has been diagnosed for 15 months with Alzheimer’s and frontal temporal damage (possibly FTD but not confirmed). She knows her language finding is difficult but has no insight into her other needs and is fiercely independent. Dad is struggling and we need extra support to help with giving Dad a break regularly. She is starting to need personal care but we can manage for a bit longer between my sister and I. Sorry for long post - it’s all so difficult and sad.
