Are you looking after a vulnerable or elderly relative?  Is the relative able to make decisions for themselves but is physically infirm?  If so, you may need a Lasting Power of Attorney  This would enable you to help administer their affairs such as paying in their cheques or online banking, settling their care bills.

If, however, the relative can longer make decisions for themselves, you will have to apply to the Court of Protection for Deputyship  The Court will appoint you to look after the relatives affairs.  We can help you with the application, if necessary.
