Power of Attorney – Putting the Right Person in Charge

Power of Attorney – Putting the Right Person in Charge

Family Services

People often arrange their financial affairs for retirement and death, but seldom consider administration requirements should they become temporarily or permanently incapacitated. By appointing an attorney, you allow someone you trust to manage your property (e.g., home) and/or your personal care (e.g., medical treatment) if you become unable to act, due to illness or disability.

Without an attorney, if you become incompetent, the government may appoint a public trustee to manage your financial and personal affairs. Chances are this person may not be the best person to assume the responsibility.

Although there are some provincial variations, generally an attorney should:

  •  Act with honestly and integrity and in good faith, for your benefit.
  • Choose the least restrictive, least intrusive, and most appropriate course of action available.
  • Encourage you to participate, the best of your abilities, in decisions about your property and personal care.
  • Foster regular personal contact between you and those family members/friends who support you.
  • Consult from time to time with supportive family and friends, and with those providing for your personal care.
