Coved 19 has caused many members of the public to concentrate their minds of the possible consequences of having the virus. Inevitably the prospect of sudden,unexpected death has meant more attention to the implementation of a Will to secure the future of loved ones and family.
Following recent reports however, it appears that death is not the only potential consequence , as they indicate many people survive the virus but suffer other severe illnesses with strokes and paralysis amongst them.
Add to that the large numbers of people in strict self isolation through shielding etc. and the inability to manage one’s own affairs becomes a serious problem.
To prepare for such eventualities it is not only a Will that becomes important but also a Lasting Power of Attorney which, when registered, can allow your affairs to be safely handled by a trusted family member or loved one. The worry and anxiety of day to day management of health and financial affairs can be eradicated with a small amount of preparation and cost.
Do not let the consequences of the pandemic catch you unawares
