Later Life Planning
Planning for the future and putting your affairs in order can provide peace of mind and security for both you and your loved ones. That’s why Age Cymru offers a range of services to help you plan for your future, now and after you’ve gone.
Our Later Life Planning Officers are fully trained and accredited in will writing and estate planning by The College of Will Writing. They hold the Society of Will Writers’ Wills and Estate Planning Certificate and are professional members of the Society of Will Writers.
Our Later Life Planning Service can help with the following:
Making a will is the only way to be certain that your wishes will be met after you die. Maybe you haven’t got around to it or you’ve deliberately put it off, but the process can be quite simple.
Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)
No one has the right to automatically take control of your finances or your care (not even your spouse). They need your authority. A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a way of giving someone you trust the legal authority to make decisions for you, if either you can’t make them yourself or don’t want to.
Advance Decision (Living Will)
While you have mental capacity, you can make choices about your care. This includes the types of medical treatment you want, or would refuse, if you were unable to make or communicate your own decisions in the future. An Advance Decision (sometimes called a Living Will) is legally binding and health professionals must follow it.
Safe Document Storage
The original, signed document is the only legally binding version of your Will, so it’s important that it’s kept safe. We offer a low cost, secure solution for document storage through The National Will Archive.
Our Later Life Planning service is aimed primarily at people living in Cardiff, Merthyr Tydfil, Rhondda Cynon Taf, and The Vale of Glamorgan. However, please still contact us if you live outside of these areas as we or one of our local partners may be able to help.
