I have the financial loos but am now wondering if I need the health one.
DM75 is severely ill with MS. The lpoa has been a godsend to sell her house and manage all finance etc without bothering her and stressing her out. Do you all have the health one too? Can you advise me if it is worth it to apply for and how it has helped? I would be the only attorney as only surviving relative. I would need to move fast as she is classed as having capacity now but I can't see how that classification can last much longer really
Is a health lasting power of attorney worth it?

I'm wondering if your father was in the same Surrey hospital my mother was in last year.
I was so relieved when we got her out of there & even more relieved that she never went back.
It had a good reputation in its day according to some retired nurses I know but it's awful now.
The Health POA gave me so much more legal clout with the doctors than just being next of kin.
