Do I need to appoint an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA) before moving in?
Yes. An Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA) is a legal document which sets out who can take care of your personal or financial matters if you can’t. That person is called your attorney. There are two types of EPOAs – an EPOA for Personal Care and Welfare and an EPOA for Property.
You need to set up an EPOA through a lawyer. The EPOA for Personal Care and Welfare only comes into effect if a medical practitioner determines you can no longer make decisions for yourself.
